The slow fade of summer also wraps up music festival season as Washington State University offers a solution to those post-Bumbershoot blues. The university hosts its third annual Humanitas Festival, which aims to celebrate world arts through a variety of different events during the week. One of the event’s headliners is Ziggy Marley, the seven-time Grammy-winning son of Bob Marley. Events also include indigenous rap and hip-hop artists Supaman, Nataanii Means, Yaz and Witko, all of whom use their music to inspire and educate others about their cultures. One of the festival’s more eccentric events is a luminarium built by Architects of Air, called “Pentalum.” Enter the house-sized, fabric sculpture and experience the fusing of Islamic architecture and Gothic-style cathedrals with light, color, beauty and geometry. The festival also offers a taste of Japanese drumming and a Ukrainian “ethno-chaos” band.

Sept. 21-26; event times and locations vary • Prices vary; some events free • Washington State University, Pullman campus • performingarts.wsu.edu/humanitas
