Primus and Clutch played Marymoor Park in 2017. This summer, Primus kicks off the outdoor concert series again. 

After a 2020 of only occasional and peculiar outdoor music, the summer of 2021 looks to be a return to a (subdued, still peculiar) normal.  Below are outdoor concerts in and around Seattle this summer. (Some festivals are also cropping up in various forms—see those here.) We'll update this list as more shows are announced; because of the persistent uncertainties of the pandemic, see the links for the most current information.
