A community event funded in part by our Neighborhood Matching Fund

Hip Hop legends and enthusiasts from around the country will gather in the Pacific Northwest, as 206 Zulu, Seattle’s Hip Hop and community non-profit organization, celebrates its 11th anniversary February 6-8, with an explosive three days of music, art, and dance.

The festivities kick-off Friday, February 6, with an appearance from acclaimed DJ, producer, rapper, and lecturer, 9th Wonder, credited with introducing the now common trend of producing unofficial remixes of entire albums; as well as music provided by some of 206 Zulu’s premier DJs, including Tecumseh, Gumbeaux & Cues; as well as performances from Romaro Franceswa, Jus Moni, and Dex Amora.

Saturday, February 7, will commence with the Meeting of the Minds event, a community forum featuring local organizers, community advocates, industry minds, and special guest and keynote speaker: 9th Wonder. Following the Meeting of the Minds will be the Zulu Throwdown Battle, spotlighting some of the region’s best b-boys and b-girls in heated 1 vs. 1 battles, as well as 1 vs. 1 all-styles battles, competing for cash prizes totaling $1000.

Ceremonies will conclude Sunday with the Community Green Dinner where Hip Hop meets environmental activism, presented by Pursuit of a Green Planet.
