Downtown Summer Sounds

Get ready to rock: Downtown Summer Sounds is back! Local and national bands are gearing up for the 45th year of our free summer concert series. This year’s program includes over 30 outdoor performances from July 5—Sept. 10, 2024. From hip-hop and folk-pop to psychedelic punk rock and bluegrass, there’s something for everyone at Downtown Summer Sounds.

Join us at Westlake Park, Occidental Square, Bell Street Park, Union Square, Harbor Steps and more great spots across downtown this summer.
The fun begins Friday, July 5 with a one-night-only show featuring singer-songwriter Thao, performing in Seattle for the first time since 2022. Thao will bring her folk-rock sound to the kick-off concert at Westlake Park at 5:30 p.m., with a pre-show beginning at 4:30 p.m.
