Upstream Music Fest + Summit

In news that warmed my heart this morning, the city of Seattle announced the lineup for Upstream Music Fest + Summit! This will be the first time that the city is doing something like this other than prev. City Arts Fest, but this event is actually meant to be more of a SXSW for the Northwest. One pass gets you good access to nearly 200 acts and you’ll be able to view shows around Pioneer Square at 25 different venues. What I love about this (and what I love about all Seattle music festivals to be honest) is just that there is such a focus on highlighting Seattle talent. Okay so AlunaGeorge is not a Seattle native, but for the most part, many of these acts are from the Pacific Northwest, which is AWESOME. For more information on purchasing a pass and what you’ll be eligible to see, click here.

I miss home. :(

President Obama Throws A Music Festival

We’ll never have another President as cool as Barack Obama. Earlier this summer, President Obama shared with everyone his summer playlist and not only was it impressive and overlapping with songs that we also listen to – he is now announcing that he’ll be throwing a festival on Monday, October 3rd. The music festival, which will be held at the White House will be called “South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action” – collaborating with SXSW and the American Film Institute.

The festival will feature panel discussions, live musicial performances, and a student film festival. The panels will focus on influencers and community leaders who are doing good in the world.

A lineup for the music festival hasn’t been announced yet, but we have no doubts that this festival won’t include an all-star lineup. In fact, we’re pretty sure that he can get just about anyone to play this so…

Also, if you think that you belong at this event or no someone that should be present, you can actually nominate a guest here.

Camp Flog Gnaw 2016

You guys, Outside Lands is tomorrow and I wasn’t even thinking about it. How far removed we have become in the last few years. Actually though I went to go see HONNE last weekend while I was in LA and it was like the first show that I’d been to in months since February or something. I’d forgotten how happy these used to make me, how expensive they were, and how much time I dedicated to shows every week and then every month.

This lineup looks great though! This is the first time I think I’m actually hearing about this festival, but Alina, The Internet, A$AP, Chance, Schoolboy – the gang’s all here!

It’s important to note that this music festival name was so hard for me to remember that when I searched it in Google right after to find an image of this lineup, I typed in “Camp Flag Gnog.” Nailed it.

Bumbershoot 2016

Every year this lineup comes out and I’m not home in Seattle for it or the festival, I experience a little fomo! Bumbershoot isn’t my childhood, but it’s totally my adolescence and that’s still pretty important. Everyone going to this is so so very lucky!!
