The Stranger

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Seattle is a major threat to The Stranger's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage of everything happening in Seattle. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

The gigantic Memorial Day weekend hippie fest full of lovely people dancing, performing world music, yodeling to beatboxing, and everything in between won't take place at Seattle Center as planned, but you can tune in to a wealth of cultural events from home. The schedule is sorted into three categories: Folklife Premieres, the Roadhouse, and On-Demand, with appearances by everyone from the Dunava Balkan Women's Choir (Sunday, 6:10 pm) to the award-winning Beninese dancer Etienne Cakpo (Saturday, 4:35 pm) to Celtic fiddler Kierah Raymond (Saturday, 6:40 pm).
