Sac LadyFest 2016

The second annual Sac Ladyfest is just around the corner, set for July 15–16 at Cafe Colonial, located at 3520 Stockton Boulevard in Sacramento. Ladyfests are annual non-profit events that take place all around the world. Organized mostly by women, they usually feature live bands, lecturers, spoken word, art and more. Sacramento’s very own grassroots version of Ladyfest launched last year to rave reviews, and organizers are excited to bring it back this summer. The two-day event will feature well over a dozen bands, many of them local, with quite a few touring in from out of town as well. Friday, July 15 performers include Chico’s Pink Bandana, Grass Valley’s Slutzville, Oakland’s Introflirt, plus locals Lights and Sirens, Spacewalker, Ghostplay, Apri Foolzz and Katmonkeys. Then on Saturday, July 16, you’ll get heavy doses of rad tunes from Australia’s Divide and Dissolve, San Francisco bands Queen Crescent and Quaaludes, Los Angeles groups Period Bomb and Trap Girl, plus locals Destroy Boys, The Bottom Feeders, Ani Maul and (Waning). It’s just $22 for a two-day pass, or $12 for individual days. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. each night and all ages are welcome. A portion of proceeds will go to Wind Youth Services, Sacramento’s only homeless youth center. Visit or to learn more and to hear a mixtape of Sac Ladyfest artists.
