MisFEST - Music Is She, She Is Music Festival
Sat, May 13, 2017, 2:00 PM – 11:00 PM CDT
MisFEST: Music Is She Music Festival presented by Tanninger Companies and Fowler Toyota of Tulsa, a Square 1 production.
On Saturday, May 13, 2017, River Parks Authority and the YWCA of Tulsa will partner to bring a First-of-Its-Kind music festival to Tulsa. MisFEST (short for Music Is She) provides a platform to empower women to succeed in the music industry. River Parks and the YWCA hope to foster community and collaboration among females in the music business while showcasing their talents in a variety of areas including (but not limited to) songwriting, performing, instrumentation, music and video production, and sound engineering.
MisFEST will highlight some of Oklahoma’s diversity in music and gender as well as raise funds for the YWCA and River Parks. The festival will be a one-day event featuring 10-12 of the region's (Tulsa and OKC) great female-led acts, including Branjae, KALO, Fiawna Forté, and many more! MisFEST hopes to broaden the cultural landscape in Tulsa by showcasing this all-female led music event. Additionally, through a partnership with the Rock and Roll Camp for Girls, MisFEST will expose more young children to music as a profession.
The inaugural festival kicks off Saturday, May 13 at 2 p.m. As a special treat, the YWCA will host a Songwriter’s “Day Before Mother’s Day” Brunch prior to the gates opening for general admission. The YWCA brunch will include an intimate performance and an opportunity to meet, mingle, and discuss topics related to women in music with female singers/songwriters. General admission tickets are $20, brunch tickets are $35 (includes GA), and VIP tickets are $50. Tickets should be purchased in advance at www.misfest.com. All proceeds will benefit River Parks Authority and the YWCA of Tulsa.
So, plan ahead for a great Valentine’s or Mother’s Day Gift for the special woman in your life and head to River West Festival Park on Saturday, May 13, 2017! More information can be found at www.misfest.com or www.riverparks.org.
