The outdoor concert series offers a range of musical styles for Seattle Center neighbors, downtown workers, music lovers, and families. Seattle Center contributes the concert space, sound, lighting and technical and event expertise. KEXP provides the “music that matters.”

Seating for Concerts at the Mural is on a first-come basis. Folding chairs and blankets are welcomed. Large coolers/ice chest, umbrellas, pets, video and audio recorders are not allowed. There will be a beer garden for people 21 years of age and older with a valid ID, and Seattle Center Armory food merchants will be open for food and drink. (Note: We will be accepting cards this year!)

Remember that the proceeds from the beer garden ensure that these free concerts happen each summer! Please have a drink in the beer garden, and refrain from bringing your own alcohol to Mural Amphitheater.
