Ladyfest 2.0 is coming!


Ladyfest is a community-based, not-for-profit global music and arts festival for female artists that features bands, musical groups, performance artists, authors, spoken word and visual artists, and workshops; it is organized by volunteers.

The first ever Ladyfest was conducted in Olympia, Washington in August 2000 with over 2000 people attending. The initial idea of Ladyfest came from a meeting of women who were being interviewed for the Experience Music Project’s exhibit on riot grrrl, including Allison Wolfe + Molly Neuman of Bratmobile, Natalie Cox, Tobi Vail, Bridget Irish, and others. There were tons more women involved in the day to day aspect of things – like Teresa, Maggie Vail, Kanako, Carrie B, and so on. Prime motivators in the event were Sarah Dougher, Sleater-Kinney, Cat Power, Neko Case, and Teresa Carmody.

Since the first Ladyfest, the event has branched out into other urban centres such as Amsterdam, Atlanta, Belgium, Berlin, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Brooklyn, Cambridge, Columbus, Chicago, Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow, Lansing, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Melbourne, Orlando, Ottawa, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Diego, Sevilla, Toronto, Washington DC, and more. Each new festival is organized locally and independently of other Ladyfest events in other states or countries, primarily by volunteers, and most proceeds are donated to non-profit organizations.
