Seattle Outdoor Concert Guide 2022

From family-friendly ZooTunes to Chateau St. Michelle's summer concert series, spend this summer grooving outdoors.

By Sophie Grossman

Now that's dedication.

Newcomers to the city may not be aware of this municipal ordinance, but as a Seattle resident you are legally obliged to spend the entire summer outside—violators may be subject to raised eyebrows at their conspicuous lack of a Chaco tan. The more you know!

Jokes aside, one of the best parts of summer in Seattle is live music under an open sky. And though it may be hard to believe after this exceptionally cold and rainy spring, outdoor concert season is nearly upon us.

We'll continue to update this list as more lineups come out. If you're looking for more multi-day music festivals, see our guide to fairs, fetes, and fests
