We are committed to inspiring self-empowerment and we welcome and encourage all people who support the education, advancement and celebration of women to participate in the festival. We feel that providing a venue for women artists counters the obstacles and discrimination that women often face, including sexism, homophobia, racism, rape and terror.



We are an annual festival where women (and men) can perform in a safe, female-friendly environment. LadyFest is open and inviting to both men and women of all ages and backgrounds.
