Upstream reveals first four main stage acts

Upstream Music Fest + Summit’s first main stage artist reveal is here. These four artists set the tone for this year’s Fest and exemplify the walkable mixtape you’ll experience only at Upstream. Drum roll please…

On Sunday, psychedelic rock band The Flaming Lips will headline the Amazon Main Stage and multi-instrumental electronic group Cut Copy will perform on the KEXP Stage, both at the main stage experience, The Sound Lot. Folk chanteuse Valerie June and avant-garde songstress Zola Jesus will also perform in the Sound Lot and that’s just the beginning…

Upsteam is excited to announce The Flaming Lips, Cut Copy, Valerie June, and Zola Jesus are four of the sixteen acts performing this year on the Sound LOT’s two main stages.

These four diverse acts set the tone for this year’s fest, and stay tuned, the additional twelve acts coming to the main stages will be announced soon, along with the 200+ artists playing in venues throughout Pioneer Square.

In the coming weeks, the Upstream team will be announcing another twelve main stage acts and 200+ artists who will perform in venues throughout Pioneer Square. See you at Upstream, June 1-3, 2018 in Pioneer Square, Seattle.
