Based in Bloomington, IN, MidWay Music Festival is an annual festival that strives to celebrate and connect women of all identities and non-binary people 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 and books acts that feature at least one woman-identifying or non-binary artist. Women-featured acts come together in Bloomington, Indiana for one weekend in October to celebrate their achievements and inspire other women-identifying and non-binary people in music to pursue their goals.
