Upstream Announcement

Announcing Partnership with Recording Academy Pacific Northwest Chapter & More

December 8, 2017


We’ve been working hard on Upstream 2018 and we’re excited to share some exciting news, especially around the Upstream Summit, presented by Amazon Web Services.
 
This year, we are partnering with the Recording Academy Pacific Northwest Chapter on the Upstream Summit. In partnership with the Recording Academy Pacific Northwest Chapter, we will offer programming that provides artists an opportunity to network and learn from industry veterans. With 12+ sessions taking place in venues across Pioneer Square, the one-day Summit is a great way to kick off the fest weekend alongside fellow artists. Learn More
 
This year, we are building the main stage experience into the North (parking) Lot of CenturyLink Field. We are calling it the “Sound Lot” which will have TWO stages—the Amazon Main Stage and KEXP Stage, a robust food and beverage program, VIP viewing areas and much more. We are also excited that all of our venues for this year participated last year with one addition, the new Embassy Suites going in Pioneer Square.  Learn More
 
We are also excited to have 12 Guest Curators returning this year. Our Guest Curators are some of the region’s most trusted music influencers and their showcases will feature the best emerging talent from the Northwest and beyond. We will be announcing new Guest Curators in the new year. Learn More >
