[07/31/2016] Zulu Park Jam @ Cal Anderson - Seattle

click JAMS to RSVP

The Park Jam has been a bedrock tradition of Hip Hop since its early days. It is one that helped shape and coalesce the four elements of DJing, breakdancing, emceeing, and graffiti art themselves. This summer, 206 Zulu is proud to continue this tradition and invite our neighbors and community to participate and experience a fun, family-friendly coming together of dynamic local Hip Hop forces at three different parks.

To spotlight the talent, diversity, and drive in the Seattle Hip Hop community, we have invited some of the most dedicated and active local crews and artist collectives to help curate the 206 Zulu Summer Park Jam Series including: Black Magic Noize, Sistas Rock the Arts, Filthy Fingers United, Golden Alchemy, 69/50, The Gathering Collective, Revolution Staging, and more, to bring you DJs, emcees, poets, singers, youth performances, and everything you need for the perfect summer evening in the young town.

In addition, we are excited to announce Lifetime Supply Club (FKA BADDAD Collective) and Stay Happy Collective as visual arts co-curators, bringing you unique pop-up installations at each location as well as featured live artists and interactive art stations.

So come get down with us in the spirit of collaboration, community building, and true school vibing. Bring a grill, bring some food, bring a blanket, bring a friend, bring your grandma, bring your dog, bring your kids, bring your art supplies, bring your slip and slide, bring your basketballs, bring your dominos, bring your smiles. Let's get together under the sun and celebrate the culture and creativity of Seattle Hip Hop.
