The Mixer: July 2018 – Meet the Seattle Music Commission


This month, The Mixer is an opportunity for you to meet with Seattle music industry leaders on the Seattle Music Commission in a relaxed environment, and help shape the vision for Seattle as a place where musicians thrive, communities are strengthened, and music businesses flourish.

Come out and learn about the Commission and the Office of Film + Music, while discussing issues relevant to creative communities. Join us in celebrating and shaping Seattle’s local music scene!

This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome.

July’s event will not offer alcohol on site.


The Seattle Music Commission is a 21-member volunteer commission representing a cross section of Seattle’s music sector, including a broad range of individuals from the local music community. The Commission strives to enhance the growth and development of Seattle’s music sector and convey the city’s commitment to the industry, musicians, and live music audience that comprise the city’s local music economy. The Commission, staffed by the City of Seattle Office of Film + Music, works with City departments and the greater community to advance the goals outlined in the Seattle City of Music 2020 Vision.
