Seattle-Tacoma International Airport launches an initiative Saturday, Jan. 28 branding Seattle as a “city of music.”
The program features audio broadcasts, video segments, a web-based music player on the airport’s free WiFi system and phone apps.
Artists from Quincy Jones (pictured here) and Ray Charles to Death Cab For Cutie and Allen Stone will be featured. Musicians will also read safety announcements.
“Experience the City of Music” kicks off Saturday at 3 p.m. with live performances in the Gina Marie Lindsey Arrivals Hall at the south end of the baggage claim area. The performers are the kid-rock band Recess Monkey (3 p.m.), Americana artists Carrie Clark & the Lonesome (4 p.m), electro-soulsters Fly Moon Royalty (5 p.m.) and the rockabilly band the Dusty 45’s (6 p.m).
Additional performances by local musicians will take place onboard Sound Transit’s Link light rail trains from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“Experience the City of Music” was developed as a partnership between the Port of Seattle, the Seattle Music Commission and PlayNetwork.
