KEXP Live In-Studio Public Viewing:
KEXP Live In-Studio performances are now open to the public! We’re excited to welcome you to our New Home to experience live music by some of KEXP’s most beloved artists. You can now sign up to view these performances with a behind-the-scenes look at DJ interviews and production. Here’s how you can reserve your spot at a KEXP in-studio session.
KEXP Registration Process & Viewing Policy:
PLEASE NOTE: Only select in-studio performances will be made open to the public, contingent upon station schedule, production capabilities, and band schedule. While rare, delays, cancellations, or postponed performances are possible. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding should last minute changes arise.
Upcoming In-Studio Performances: Please visit our upcoming in-studio page to see which in-studio performances are open to the public. Scheduled performances will be noted (PUBLIC SIGN UP) on each. New Home Location: KEXP is located on the corner of 1st Ave North and Republican, on the Seattle Center Campus. Our address is 472 1st Ave N, Seattle WA 98109. The main entrance is located on 1st Ave North on the west side of the building. Upon arrival, please check in with the front desk for in-studio performance sign up.
Q: Is the Gathering Space and Viewing Gallery wheelchair accessible?
A: Yes. All entry points are accessible. There are no stairs leading into either the Gathering Space or Viewing Gallery.
Q: What’s the capacity of the Viewing Gallery?
A: Total capacity in the Viewing Gallery is 75. We allow 70 sign up guests with 5 to accommodate wheelchair access and working staff.
Q: Are children welcome?
A: Yes, however, please keep in mind that for the enjoyment of all guests, we ask that attendees remain quiet during the performance. Also, please consider there is no entry or exit once the performance begins. If you don’t feel your child will be able to watch the performance quietly for 30 minutes, you may want to reconsider.
Q: Can I hold a bunch of tickets for my friends?
A: No. To ensure all listeners have an opportunity to see a live in-studio performance, guests must be present to sign in and obtain a ticket. Each guest signed in can pick up one additional ticket only. Again, guests must be present 15 minutes prior to the performance and lined up in order to enter the Gathering Space for the performance.
Q: Can we have in and out privileges during the performance?
A: No. The Gathering Space is dark with blackened windows so that KEXP photographers and videographers can capture the best content possible during the performance. Light from opening doors will have a negative effect on the content so we must keep the doors closed. This is also why we cannot allow flash photography. The sound and light from opening doors is also disruptive to other audience members.
