Washington music festivals to get tickets to before summer 2022 is here
We’ve talked about how weed and music are a perfect match before. So naturally, finding a Washington music festival to attend this summer is a must-do, especially as we make our way toward more in-person events and activities. You can take your festival experience to the next level by stocking up on green at our Bellingham pot shop, Spokane dispensary, or any other location before you hit the road to enjoy the live music, sunshine, and good vibes.

Let’s take a look at some festivals to check out!
Bellingham: Northwest Tune-Up Festival July 8-10
A celebration of PNW culture, Northwest Tune-Up Festival is your one-stop shop for bikes, beers, and live music right here at the Bellingham waterfront. Honestly, what says PNW more than bikes and brews? Add some bud to the mix and you’re all set. Though tailored to the bike lovers of the area, the festival is also a big event for music fans and anyone looking for a good time on a sunny summer’s day.
The lineup includes Reggie Watts, Wolf Parade, and Devotchka, among local favorites like Chastity Belt and Cat Valley. Dance around, get your bike fix, and celebrate summer in beautiful Belligha. You can learn more about the event here.
Seattle: Capitol Hill Block Party July 22-24
CHBP has been rocking Seattle for years, and this one is no exception. Three days of music, art, and neighborhood celebrations across the streets, bars, and restaurants.
Diplo, Charlie XCX, and Jai Wolf will headline alongside Toro y Moi, 100 Gecs, Danny Brown, and dozens more. As always, the producers have put together a solid lineup of big-name artists contrasted with small and local favorites.
If you’ve never seen the Capitol Hill neighborhood during a block party, now’s your chance. The whole city comes alive and together to celebrate a shared love of music and culture. It’s a bustling hub of music, drinks, good spirits, and new connections. Learn more here.
Snohomish: Summer Meltdown July 28-31
This multi-day grassroots festival takes place in beautiful Snohomish, carefully tucked on a campsite with river access and tubing. Go rafting, ride a helicopter, or even take a horseback ride in between sets at this event, and camp out under the stars in a fun farm town when the day’s events come to an end.
Andy Coe Band, Brass Against, and Cedar Teeth will lead the way alongside other groovy musical acts that will certainly pair well with a little greenery and sunshine.
Learn more about the event here.
The Gorge: Watershed July 29-31
Country music fans know to congregate at the Gorge at the end of July, but if you forgot, here’s your friendly reminder to get your tickets. Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, and Kane Brown lead the event alongside other country music acts and plenty of wide open spaces, beer, and good times for everyone.
If you’ve never spent time at the Gorge, this is a great opportunity to see what it’s all about and catch some gorgeous sunsets among like-minded musical friends. Everyone will be dancing, chit-chatting, and embracing the spirit of a big festival. You can learn more about the event here.
Seattle: Day In Day Out Fest Aug 12-14
Indie heads can’t resist snagging tickets to Day In Day Out Fest at the Seattle Center this summer. After all, Mac Demarco will be playing music from Rock N Roll Night Club & 2 alongside performances from The National, Mitski, Turnstile, Japanese Breakfast, Animal Collective, and more. How could you miss that?
A joint, some live music, and a day spent at the Seattle Center? Count us in. This festival flawlessly blends big names in indie rock with local acts that are working their way to the top as we speak. You can learn more about it here.
Port Townsend: THING Festival Aug 26-28
Three days of music and arts all tucked away in historic Fort Worden in Port Townsend may sound like a dream, but trust us, this is real. There will be two indoor and two outdoor stages, a former balloon hangar converted into a theater, and a cool, intimate art deco venue. The creator of the now-defunct Sasquatch Festival pivoted to create THING, and the result is a much more intimate, connected event that brings a variety of music lovers together.
Catch Modest Mouse, Father John Misty, Freddie Gibbs, Hiatus Kaiyote, and many other big names at THING and learn more about it here.
Seattle: Bumbershoot TBD
We don’t know a lot about the reimagined Bumbershoot creators promised us, we just know it’s coming in 2022. The dates are still up in the air, the artists are unknown, and the lay of the land may be totally different. But what list of Washington music festivals would be complete without a mention of the famous festival that has graced Seattle for decades?
Expect an announcement soon. And prepare to check out the newly-reimagined festival loved by so many. Learn more about the changes here.
What about concerts at the mural?
If you’re in Seattle, a KEXP listener, or just a lover of music, you may be familiar with the Concerts at the Mural series KEXP and the Seattle Center hosted between 2007-2019. Unfortunately, those concerts are on hold now.
Every Friday in August, music lovers could come to a totally free show at the Seattle Center, with three bands performing next to a beer/wine garden and fun sponsor booths. The event may return someday, but don’t expect to get free concerts every Friday this August.
We didn’t include every Washington music festival set to take place this summer, but we certainly highlighted the big names that are gathering excitement each day. Even if you’re not familiar with all of the bands or if you’ve never been to a festival, it’s worth checking out for the fun cultural experience. After all, music festivals are big parties for people who love music, dancing, and art. It’s hard to go wrong with that.
