OUR VISION

Educate. Empower. Entertain. 

MidWay Music Speaks is a nonprofit organization based in Bloomington, IN that celebrates & connects women and non-binary people in music via promotion, empowerment, and performance opportunities.

The organization was established in 2018 following the first ever MidWay Music Festival that took place in September of 2017.  After seeing the potential for growth & a greater impact, the festival was taken to the next level and transformed into MidWay Music Speaks, which now houses a variety of programs for individuals of all ages. 

MidWay strives to: encourage more women of all identities and non-binary people to make music, bring more gender diversity to the stage, provide youth with strong mentors, make the music industry more accessible to those looking for experience, and create a community of musicians from varying experience levels. Our organization hopes to educate, empower, and entertain.
