Riverwest FemFest launches monthly livestream series

512 640

Like nearly every festival, this spring’s Riverwest FemFest has been indefinitely postponed because of the pandemic. But the organizers have come up with a virtual replacement. On Friday, the festival will debut a monthly livestream series featuring Milwaukee performers as well as a couple acts from outside the city.

The performances will be streamed on FemFest’s Instagram page. “This concert series is a three-part effort to fund performing artists, a mutual aid effort, and a Milwaukee music venue,” co-organizer Johanna Rose tells us.

Proceeds will go to the performers, the community organization Ayuda Mutua MKE and Cactus Club. The lineup is below.
