Woodland Park Zoo’s ZooTunes concert series is back this summer!

ZooTunes is back! Woodland Park Zoo is welcoming guests back to the meadow this summer for the 37th annual BECU ZooTunes presented by Carter Subaru concert season! It will be a safe, socially distanced way to make memories with your loved ones while supporting some of the best local talent the region has to offer.

Woodland Park Zoo has partnered with legendary Seattle radio station KEXP for a very unique and extraordinary ZooTunes concert season. This year’s line-up will be curated by KEXP and will focus solely on local musicians.

“KEXP is honored to partner with Woodland Park Zoo to help create this year’s ZooTunes, and grateful to be part of the reawakening of live music in our city,” said Tom Mara, Executive Director of KEXP. “As a longtime partner of the zoo, KEXP is proud to deepen our partnership this year by working together to support the zoo and their conservation work, while also supporting the local music community. We look forward to summer evenings of amazing live music, healing, and community.”

Like the zoo, so many artists and musicians were hit hard during the pandemic. Woodland Park Zoo, along with KEXP, wanted to find a way to support the local communities and bring people together in music.

“Our zoo community could not be more excited to welcome back ZooTunes concert-goers this summer,” said Alejandro Grajal, President and CEO of Woodland Park Zoo. “We are so grateful to our partners at KEXP and King County government for their support to make ZooTunes possible this year. We have made some changes to ensure the safety and health of our guests and the artists so that we can fully celebrate the return of live, local music to our green oasis in the city. As always, ZooTunes will support wildlife conservation work to save species around the world.”

ZooTunes is a key fundraising event for Woodland Park Zoo with proceeds going to support the zoo’s exemplary animal care, wildlife conservation projects in the Pacific Northwest and around the world, and extraordinary experiences that inspire and empower guests to stand up for wildlife.
