Today marks the Sea-Tac’s one-year anniversary of the City of Music program. During the first year, the program was awarded “Best Arrivals Experience” by the FTE consisting of a panel of industry experts. During the initiative’s second year, the number of live musicians playing throughout the terminal will be doubled.
“The expansion of the live music program allows us to connect with even more of the 34 million passengers who travel through Sea-Tac every year,” said Port of Seattle Commissioner John Creighton. “With the airport providing the first and last impression of Seattle, we have a unique opportunity to showcase our region’s iconic music culture — and support jobs in the local music industry.”
The Sea-Tac Airport Music Initiative includes more than just live music and overhead music in the terminal. It also features artist-read public announcements, feature videos on terminal and baggage claim monitors, a local music web player available via the airport’s free wifi, and the City of Music App.
We have teamed up with Port of Seattle,The Office of Film + Music, and Seattle Music Commission to showcase the Northwest region’s music culture and enhance the experience of millions of passengers who pass through Sea-Tac Airport each year.
