More than 200 bands are set to play the second-year fest. Early-bird ticket prices start at $60 for a single day and $140 for a weekend pass.
Well, it’s here. After a three-part rollout over the last month and a half, we now know the complete bajillion-band lineup for the second annual Upstream Music Fest + Summit.
The splashiest names in part three of the drawn-out trilogy are recently reunited punk bands Jawbreaker and Hot Snakes. Pop-punks and emo progenitors Jawbreaker reunited in 2017 for a handful of dates, including a benefit gig in Olympia where bassist Chris Bauermesiter now resides.
