Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion was filled with music from live performances and the smell of delicious food Saturday, Sept. 4, for the first ever “Day In Day Out Festival,” a small-scale music festival organized by Daydream State, which is also known for organizing the annual “Capitol Hill Block Party.” Guests were required to bring their vaccination card or negative COVID-19 tests to enter the venue.
The limited crowd slowly trickled into the venue around 3 p.m. and consisted largely of young people from the Seattle area. A blow to the event was the absence of two notable artists. Portland rapper Aminé had to cancel his performance after testing positive for COVID-19, while Seattle’s Parisalexa also pulled out of the line-up due to a non-COVID-19 illness. Local singer and rapper LIVt replaced Parisalexa’s slot. Local rapper Sol replaced Aminé’s performance for the day.
Food vendors like the South End’s The Original Philly’s and Central District’s The Fish Box fed hungry music fans into the evening. Headliners Travis Thompson, a Burien rapper, and Haitian-Canadian record producer DJ Kaytranada both drew enthusiastic crowds.
