Refill-Logo.jpg

REFILL is a community-driven, live-streamed benefit concert to help raise $25,000 for the Seattle Artist Relief Fund (SARF), a Black-led community response to help provide direct financial support to artists who have been affected by COVID-19.
  
With the global pandemic extending further into the future, artists from Seattle recognized a need for renewed focus and funding to support Seattle artists through SARF. In partnership with SARF and LANGSTON, KEXP presented a live streamed concert back in July.

Watch footage of some of these performances below, and donate through each video where 100% of your donations go directly to artists in need.

LIVE from Rennes, France for Trans Musicales

Late last year, KEXP headed back to Rennes, France, for our third year at the Trans Musicales de Rennes! Our goal, as always when partnering with international festivals like Les Trans, is to discover and share new music from across the globe with you from artists that we may not have otherwise heard. Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the festival has made a name for itself featuring artists just before they break and seeking new talent from around the world. Check out some of these exciting new discoveries below.
