Day In Day Out Festival will be here before you know it!
The thought of all the upcoming music festivals in the Seattle area this summer is getting us through the rest of winter right now. If that’s the case for you as well, you’ll want to get caught up on the latest Seattle music festival news. The 2023 Day in Day Out Festival is taking place on August 12-13 at the Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center. They just announced the lineup and released tickets for sale now!
Read on for all the details!
Headliners and lineup
Bon Iver and Leon Bridges are headlining the music festival this year. Other headliners include Dominic Fike, Willow, Explosions in the Sky, and Alex G.
The rest of the performers rounding out this year’s lineup are BadBadNotGood, Yaeji, Ethel Cain, Surf Curse, Nation of Language, Indigo de Souza, Yaya Bey, and Enumclaw. Seattle-area bands such as Acid Tongue, THEM, and Sea Lemon will perform DJ sets along with other musical artists.
Tickets start at $180 for two-day general admission and $300 for two-day VIP admission. If you spring for the VIP tickets, you’ll get access to the 21+ VIP lounge. This includes a dedicated VIP entrance to the festival (no lines!), access to the upper deck and private bathrooms, three complimentary drink tickets for each day, a photo booth, games, comfy lounge seating, VIP-exclusive food trucks, and a great view of the whole festival including the main stage.
If you can only swing GA tickets, don’t worry. There will be plenty of food trucks and vendors inside the main festival grounds as well. You can also find more food options inside the nearby Seattle Center Armory.
A new perk this year is that if you purchase tickets for Day In Day Out, you’ll be automatically enrolled to the Daydream State membership. This includes benefits such as 10% off this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party and a 10% discount at all Daydream State restaurants including Lost Lake, Big Mario’s, and The Comet Tavern—and more. According to DIDO, “This is to say thank you for supporting independent music in Seattle.”
Daily show times have not been released yet. The festival takes place on August 12 and August 13 from 12:30 to 11:00 p.m. on both days. The festival will happen rain or shine.
Want to bring your kids to Day In Day Out Festival? The festival is all-ages, and kids age 8 and under are admitted for free. However, keep in mind that the Beer Gardens and VIP lounge sections are for ages 21 and up only.
If you’re as pumped as we are, you can get your tickets and more info on the festival website.
