SeaTac Airport doubles up on live music

Great news for travelers - live music at SeaTac is doubling up! Port of Seattle, Seattle Music Commission and PlayNetwork have all come together to create the Experience the City of Music Program, which means twice the number of musicians playing in SeaTac, for twice the hours.

"With Sea-Tac Airport providing the first and last impression of Seattle for many travelers, we have a unique opportunity to showcase our region's iconic music culture and support jobs in the local music industry," said Port of Seattle Commissioner John Creighton.

Forty local musicians will be playing seven days a week, for eight hour periods in multiple locations throughout the terminal. For the 34 million people who pass through the airport each year, this is a huge upgrade from the previous roster of two artists, each playing for four hours.
