Paul Allen’s big new music festival and networking opportunity for musicians will feature more than 200 acts across all genres on more than 25 stages. Three-fourths will be Northwest talents. Keynote speakers will be Quincy Jones, Macklemore and Portia Sabin. “Upstream is a platform to showcase genre diversity, women and people of color—that’s something you don’t see in a lot of festivals,” says fest booker Melissa Darby.
