FEMALES ON FIRE: The Los Angeles Women's Music Festival 2007
Celebrating women in music and the men and women who love them, the first annual Los Angeles Women's Music Festival will be held at Woodley Park, Encino, CA on Sat. Aug. 25, 2007, from 10-6.
Featuring Sophie B. Hawkins, BETTY, Klymaxx, Patrice Pike, Los Abandoned, SONiA of Disappear Fear, Brasil Brazil, SheJay DJs and many other talented artists, the event is both a ground-breaking women's music festival and a benefit for animal rescue.
Despite the success and popularity of Lilith Fair and other women's music festivals around the country, this is the first festival of its kind in Los Angeles, the heart of the music industry. The support for and response to this year's festival has been overwhelmingly positive. As one fan put it, "I love music – and I love women!" Held at Woodley Park, home of WorldFest, with power provided by eSolar and with vegan, vegetarian and organic food, pet adoptions, children's activities, a healing arts tent and more, this is an eco-music festival with fun for the whole family.
50+ Bands and Performers on 5 Stages
The festival features more than fifty female performers and female-fronted bands from around the world, representing all genres of music. Bands will play from 10-6 on five stages: Gaia Global, Females on Fire, Les Femmes, Moulin Rouge and the SheJay dance tent featuring DJ Lillyanne, DJ Syrena, Raistalla, DJ Diosa, Sirsa, DJ MIAmor and DJ SyrEhN.
