The Folklife Festival is a four-day free festival at Seattle Center, focussing on arts and music from around the world, with dozens of performances each day. Though we here at The Stranger have been known to lovingly mock the 'Life, this year brings some legit excitement in the form of its Beats, Rhymes, and Rhythms programming, focussing on the roots of hiphop. For a full schedule of events, check out their website. Notable acts this year include Grace Love, Tomo Nakayama, Prom Queen, Whitney Monge, and Ben Von Wildenhaus.
