Sounds Only Logo.png


Downtown Sounds started as a small gathering hosted in an alley, turning the underutilized space into something extraordinary. And extraordinary it became. With each year the event grew, now taking up two entire city blocks on Bay and Prospect Streets. Downtown Sounds draws bands from across the country and folks from Whatcom County and beyond to share in their love of music. After over a decade of this beloved, award-winning, urban music festival, it is firmly cemented as Downtown Bellingham's hottest summer attraction.
