Upstream’s first Main Stage Artist Reveal

January 25, 2018

It’s time for Upstream’s first Main Stage Artist Reveal, which sets the tone for what’s to come at this year’s Upstream Music Fest + Summit. Seattle favorite, pioneering psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips headline Sunday, along with multi-instrumental electronic group Cut Copy. They will be joined over the weekend by folk chanteuse Valerie June and avant-garde songstress Zola Jesus. With sixteen artists playing the Sound Lot, in addition to the 200+ emerging artists from the Northwest and beyond filling Pioneer Square, Upstream gives you a whole new walkable mixtape of non-stop music in 2018.
These four acts set the tone for this year’s Fest and exemplify the diverse lineup you’ll experience only at Upstream. From the Sound Lot stages to the showcases in Pioneer Square, this year will bring a mix of nostalgic and new, loud and chill, iconic and emerging—offering a diversity of experience and music discovery that sets Upstream apart from the typical music festival. 
Early bird tickets are on sale now offering attendees up to 25% off in savings! Hurry and snag your tickets before prices increase this spring, when we’ll unveil all sixteen main stage acts and 200+ additional artists with Upstream’s full lineup announcement.
