Welcome to a festival of champions. It’s filled with outstanding individuals from diverse backgrounds, gathering to find new inspiration, learn about others’ respective fields, and most powerfully of all, support one another. And all proudly brought to you by your friendly neighborhood #bossbabesATX. Welcome to BABES FEST.

Created in 2016, BABES FEST celebrates and amplifies the experience of women and nonbinary artists in a wide range of disciplines, including music, film, art, creative education and comedy. It’s all about supporting, redefining and providing a space for great talent and performances.

The music portion of the festival happens tonight at The North Door with a line-up including Madame Gandhi; Austin band Calliope Musicals; Denton psych rockers Sunbuzzed; Dallas-based experimental harpist Jess Garland; Austin DJ, emcee and performance artist Belladonna, and many more.

The music starts at 8 p.m. And it’s all badass babes. Very recommended.
