Based in Bloomington, IN, MidWay Music Festival is an annual festival that strives to celebrate & connect women of all identites & non-binary individuals in music.
Who We Are & What We Represent
A 2016 Huffington Post study revealed a startling truth about the current state of music festival lineups. While women make up over 50% of festival attendees, majority of stage time is covered by 100% male acts. In order to counter these statistics, MidWay Music Festival seeks out & books acts that feature at least one woman artist. Women-featured acts come together in Bloomington, Indiana for one weekend in October to celebrate their achievements and inspire other women in music to pursue their goals.
