Experience the City of Music

Introduced in 2012, the Experience the City of M​usic Program is a cooperative effort by the Port of Seattle, the Office of Film + Music, Seattle Music Commission and PlayNetwork. It is a comprehensive
effort to showcase the Northwest's diverse music culture and enhance the experience of millions of travelers who pass through the airport.

In 2013, the program was honored as Best Arrivals Experience by the Future Travel Experience Awards to recognize innovative, ambitious and effective initiatives and organizations in the airline industry. Travelers may experience:
  • ​Live performances seven days a week at locations throughout the terminal
  • Overhead music exclusively by more than 240 Northwest artists
  • Videos featuring clips about Seattle’s music scene and history on terminal and baggage claim
  • Multi-genre web radio available through the airport’s free Wi-Fi Network

Pearl Jam Exhibit at Sea-Tac

Sea-Tac Airport and EMP Museum Unveiled a Pearl Jam Concert Poster Art Exhibit as Part of Experience the City of Music Program. Read the May 27, 2015 news release here.
Travelers have since been enjoying the collection of 85 posters from more than 30 artists including the Ames Bros., Brad Klausen, Munk One, Ward Sutton, and others. These posters reflect the artists who created them, but they also become an extension of the band, referencing the musicians, the venues and cities in which they play, song lyrics, contemporary politics, a world of music, and a love of history and popular culture.
The display, located in concourse A at Sea-Tac, receives the rave reviews of travelers from around the globe who continue to be engaged by the remarkable exhibit that, naturally, is on display in the city where Pearl Jam began their path to notoriety and fame.
