Downtown Seattle’s free summer concert series kicks off July 9 with three concerts each week and what a series it will be!
The summer soundtrack in Downtown Seattle will be turned up a notch this year with the merger of two popular concert series—the City of Seattle’s Seattle Presents and Metropolitan Improvement District’s (MID) Out to Lunch Concert Series.
Together, the MID and City of Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture, in partnership with Downtown Seattle Association and Seattle Parks and Recreation, will co-produce the Out to Lunch Concert Series, showcasing exciting local and national acts each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during the lunch hour (noon – 1:30 p.m.) across Downtown Seattle. Returning favorites March Fourth Marching Band will be kicking things off on July 9 at Westlake Park and these free concerts will continue until September 5, concluding with Hey Marseilles at Freeway Park. The lineup will also include regional and national artists like Kris Orlowski, Vicci Martinez, Vaudeville Etiquette, Chuck Prophet, and The Maldives at the as well as a number of great Seattle artists like Industrial Revelation, Latin-salsa band Picoso and funk/soul group The Dip.
