Ladyfest Glasgow
Kinning Park Complex
Friday 8th and Saturday 9th of March
Kinning Park Complex

Ladyfest is a woman-run, mostly-woman music festival here in Glasgow. Although
the performances are open to anyone, the workshops are only for people who
identify as women (cis or trans), gender-queer or non-gendered. Shitty that
feminist parlance in 2012 is still at the stage where it is necessary to note
that we will respect your gender identity, but there you go. Our feminism will
be intersectional, or it will be bullshit.

Full details of workshops and bands line-up and tickets on the website:
