Experience local music, art, and culture performances late afternoons on Fridays 4pm ‑ 6pm. Discover Seattle at Pier 62.

All ages welcome

Spotlight on the Waterfront engages audiences of all ages to experience music and visual performances along the new waterfront. Set on one of the city’s most scenic locations, Pier 62, this series provides audiences a chance to discover the region’s arts and culture.

This ‘pop-up’ program is a platform for local artists and cultural communities to introduce themselves, their songs, dance, and cultures, to a wide audience. These performances encourage a sense of spontaneity for neighbors, visitors and other community members along the downtown Seattle shoreline.

Check back as more artists are announced.

Deseo Carmin is a fiery fusion of latin, jazz/funk, and spicy flamenco: high energy original music as well as sultry arrangements on favorite Latin, Brazilian and Spanish songs. The band is award-winning, nominated by Univision Seattle Latin Music Awards as “Best Composer of the Year” as well as 2018 TEDx Seattle Speaker/Artist, where they performed a fusion of Latin Jazz and Funk infused in Flamenco. They intermix music with dance and colorful costumes that gets the audience enthralled with their music and visuals. They have been featured on several local and international television shows from Seattle to Latin America – NBC’s King 5, KCTS Channel 9, Seattle Channel 21 and in Chile and Paraguay.

Hosted by Friends of Waterfront Seattle

Friends of Waterfront Seattle (“Friends”) is the nonprofit partner to the City of Seattle responsible for helping to fund, build, steward, and program the park — today and into the future. In deep collaboration with individuals, communities, and institutional partners, Friends’ mission is creating, caring for, and activating a renewed place on Seattle’s central shoreline to connect — to the water, to the mountains, to our city, and to one another. In addition to raising $110M by 2024 to fund park construction, Friends will provide funding and manage the programming and operations of the future Waterfront Park through a joint-delivery partnership with Seattle Parks & Recreation. Park construction has begun following the Viaduct’s removal and the first piece of the park — Pier 62 — is now open.
