NW Folklife Festival

Zulu Jam is the Northwest Folklife Festival’s premiere Hip Hop stage. Featuring a broad range of emerging artists from the Northwest and beyond, 206 Zulu has partnered with Northwest Folklife since 2008 and continues to this day to expose true-school Hip Hop to the masses.

The Northwest Folklife Festival is an annual gathering that celebrates the traditional art, music and crafts of the Pacific Northwest. Admission is completely free, and the gathering takes place at the Seattle Center every Memorial weekend in May. It attracts an estimated total of 250,000 people and 6,000 musicians every year. The festival itself began in 1972, and has since been dedicated to creating opportunities for people to appreciate, create, share, and participate in some of the most culturally rich traditions of the Pacific Northwest.
