ZooTunes Concert Season is back for summer and tickets for their first concerts will be sold from May 21.
Woodland Park Zoo is welcoming music lovers back to their meadow this summer for their 37th annual ZooTunes Concert Season. Partnering with the Seattle radio station KEXP, they have announced their first three concerts for June and August.
This year’s line-up has been organized by KEXP and is focused on supporting local musicians to help them mitigate the blow COVID-19 had on their industry.
These are the concerts confirmed so far, with more to be announced soon:
Sunday, July 18
The Posies were formed in 1987 in Bellingham, Washington. They play alternative rock and are influenced by music from artists like Elvis Costello and Squeeze.
Sunday, August 8
The Naked Giants were formed in 2014 in Seattle, Washington. They play grunge music and released their second studio album last August.
Wednesday, August 25.
Another band of Seattleites! The Polyrythmics have been performing for more than a decade and fans assure you they’ll make you dance during their concert. Are you ready?
This year, tickets will only be sold online and not at the Zoo gates; you can find them on the zoo’s official website. Money raised by ZooTunes will be going towards supporting the zoo’s animal care and local and global conservation programs.
