The Estrojam Music and Culture Festival is an annual 501C3 not-for- profit, community-based event that features internationally acclaimed and emerging musicians and artists, educators, activists, and community leaders in dozens of events, including concerts, workshops, panels, and a film festival presented at Chicago's best venues. Each year, we work to promote and benefit pro-women non-profit organizations that support non-violent social change. The event takes place annually in late September (dates TBA).

Each year 50-100 artists play the festival. At this past year's Estrojam, 6,000 people attended - and we sold out our shows nearly every night! The festival has had performances from such artists as; Concrete Blonde, Brazilian Girls, The Organ, Amy Ray, Bahamadia, Cat Power, The Gossip, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Lyrisis, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, Wanda Jackson, All Girl Summer Fun Band, Northern State, Kaki King, Kinnie Starr, Theo from the Lunachicks, Cynthia Plaster Caster, The Butchies, Staceyann Chin, Princess Superstar, Laura Love and Bitch & Animal.

Submitting acts must have at least one female performer in order to be eligible. Selected artists will be compensated for their performance at a rate to be determined between the promoter and the artist. All genres are accepted. Please make sure your EPK includes your artist bio, contact information, music and specific technical needs for your work.

Estrojam is organized by women and open to all. Our mission is to help build and foster a supportive arts community that inspires, educates, breaks down stereotypes, and encourages bold creative expression.
