Two years ago on April 16th, KEXP opened the doors to our new home in Seattle Center. As we celebrate this momentous occasion in our station’s history, let’s revisit some of the videos from the Grand Opening celebration below, with more here. Thank you to everyone who helped build this new home!
KEXP regularly hosts both local and international artists for in-studio performances in our live room, concerts in the Gathering Space, and live broadcasts from music festivals. Not only can you enjoy these performances on the air, but you can also relive the experience with our live videos. Subscribe to the KEXP YouTube Channel for more sessions like these from St. Vincent, Ibeyi, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, and Taylor McFerrin.
