Music & Performances

Each year we play host to some great entertainers and musicians from Seattle and all around the Northwest. Engaging street performers and local buskers will be keeping the streets alive with impromptu music, acts, and dancing throughout the weekend. We will also be showcasing up-and-coming artists and well-established bands on our stage, equipped with great sound systems and plenty of room for dancing.

Metro PCS Main Stage: Our 2018 Lineup includes

 

Saturday 

11:15 Circus Alley

At a September 2013 wedding former co-workers Jonno and Joel found each others’ love for music. “We should busk,” said Joel, to which Jonathan replied “What’s busking?”

Soon after they spent the next year, week after week down at Pike Place Market playing on the street, donating any pennies in the hat to the Pike Place Food Bank. After a year or so, original music started to fall out of their guitars and they set their sights on other arenas than the streets. They play in various locales around the Lake Washington area and have no intention of slowing down.

3:00 Shiftless Layabout

Lo-fi Funk and Hi-Fi Action.  Original Seattle soul since 2002 – a combination of dirty guitars, tight horns, 70s rock, outdated dance moves and kung-fu grit.  Shiftless Layabout works the groove, moving in that space between neck twitching funk and the satisfying crunch of real soul.  They’re like that over-sized pair of your grandma’s sunglasses… a little too large to be taken seriously, but shockingly cool and incredibly funky.
