Substation, Seattle, WA
Call it a conclave. A roundup. A gala. Just don’t call it a festival. #NadaFest is anything but. Hosted by volunteer online music and culture magazine NadaMucho.com, the “concentrated three-day gathering,” as the editors put it, is a way to highlight emerging local artists they think you should have your ears open to. They keep it laid back, a little dirty, and plenty loud. And they skip all the stuff you’ve already heard of for the latest and greatest of the Northwest’s underground artists.
Now in its third year, #NadaFest 2017 will again fill Frelard’s Substation with over 20 bands alternating between two stages, with 100% of door sales being split evenly between all the bands. You’ll find hip hop, punk, guitar rock, and the most experimental electronics imaginable. There’s something for everyone and really no better or easier way to support the local scene.
“There are lots of chances to see local bands throughout the year in Seattle,” says NadaMucho.com Contributor and Substation Booker Tim Basaraba. “What’s unique about #NadaFest is that every artist performing is one we’ve paid careful attention to and grown to love over the last year or two.” Those artists come from NadaMucho.com’s yearly lists of “41 Bands to Watch,” and this is officially your chance to literally watch them. So get your eyes, ears, and dancing shoes ready.
