Pros and Cons of Performances in Seattle

Seattle’s proximity to the great outdoors and inspiring culinary scene are just two of the perks of holding your performance here. But its gloomy weather and high living expenses are worth considering.


  • Proximity to nature
    Home to beautiful urban parks and surrounded by rugged mountains, Seattle is a dream setting for nature lovers. When your performance is over, you can escape to the great outdoors to go hiking, cycling, or scenic driving.
  • Experienced professionals
    Seattle has an energized live music scene, which means there are plenty of professionals you can utilize to make your performance happen, including sound engineers, stagehands, and roadies.

  • It’s a relatively safe city
    When you consider its size, Seattle is a relatively safe city to visit, provided you avoid any neighborhoods that have a reputation for crime.

  • A diverse choice of performance spaces
    Seattle boasts a wide range of performance spaces where you can host your event, including architecturally impressive homes, industrial-style lofts, and purpose-built studios.
  • Outstanding food scene
    Seattle is renowned for its culinary scene, which is focused on sourcing local and seasonal produce. This means you’ll eat well during your time in the city and can provide high-quality catering to your performers and crew.


  • High costs of living
    Seattle is one of the most expensive cities to live in the United States, with high property and rental prices.

  • Unfavorable weather
    Seattle has a reputation for experiencing lots of rain and often long periods of gray skies. This means it isn’t the best place to hold an outdoor performance unless you’re planning it during the height of summer.

  • Terrible traffic
    It might not seem bad to those coming from New York or Los Angeles, but Seattle’s traffic can be terrible at times. If possible, take advantage of the city’s public transportation system to get from A to B.

  • Seismic activity
    While the chances of anything happening during your performance are relatively low, Seattle is located in earthquake country (and surrounded by active volcanoes), making it a hotspot for natural disasters.
