TULSA, Okla. - The River Parks Authority is bringing back its female-focused music festival for a third year in September.
MisFEST -- a music festival focused on empowering women in the music industry -- is headed to Guthrie Green in downtown Tulsa on September 14. The festival returns with a lineup of female-fronted bands, interactive art installations, female-focused craft markets and food trucks.
"MisFEST, short for Music is She and She is Music, was founded by local musicians Casii Stephan and Amira Al-Jiboori after noticing the high level of talent and diversity that female artists in the area had to offer and wanting to build a stronger community among them. The festival is designed to shine a spotlight on talented women both on and off stage, whether they are lead singers, songwriters, musicians, sound engineers, DJs, or producers." -- River Parks Authority
MisFEST is free to enter, but 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the River Parks Authority.
The event will be headlined by international singer-songwriter and Grammy-nominated artist KT Tunstall.
Local and regional acts include Bambi, Good Villains, Smoochie Wallace, and more.
Installation art at the third annual event will come from Black Moon Collective, Laura Voth, and Ever Something.
Before MisFEST begins, there will be two workshops with industry professionals held for those interested in the music business.
