Downtown Summer Sounds: July 9–Aug. 31

Downtown Summer Sounds, produced by the Downtown Seattle Association and presented by Virginia Mason, brings free local music to downtown Seattle throughout the summer. Formerly the Out to Lunch concert series, Downtown Summer Sounds continues a 40-year DSA tradition of supporting free live music for Seattle workers, residents and visitors.

This year, Pike Place MarketFront joins the roster of venues, offering stunning views of the waterfront and the perfect sunny space to enjoy live music. The MarketFront complements the other public spaces in our series, including Westlake Park, Occidental Square, Harbor Steps, City Hall Plaza and more. We’re also excited to showcase emerging artists at four of the City Hall Plaza dates through an expanded partnership with Abbey Arts.

Gigs4U is a proud partner of the Downtown Summer Sounds concert series.
