20 Years of MoPOP: Experience Music Project Launches With Weekend of Concert Festivities
To celebrate 20 years of the Museum of Pop Culture, we're highlighting 20 of the most notable moments from MoPOP's history. For our nonprofit museum's fourth milestone, we look back at opening day for Experience Music Project.
After breaking ground on the Seattle Center Campus in 1997, Experience Music Project (now MoPOP) opened its doors on June 23, 2000. The celebration included a weekend of concert festivities, including performances by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Patti Smith, Snoop Dogg, Metallica, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Bo Diddley, Alanis Morissette, No Doubt, Beck, The Cold Crush Brothers, Bratmobile, Ann Wilson, James Brown, and many others.
