The line-up is confirmed for Ladyfest Cork April 2008 and we have an eclectic mix of rockin’ ladies from all over Ireland and Europe coming together to let loose and have a girl riot in Cork this Spring. We want to celebrate how many fab female artists there are by getting together a few of whom we think are the best for a whole weekend of music, art, performance, film and workshops, nice one! Bands are travelling from France, the UK, Holland, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford to come together to celebrate another famed Ladyfest weekend.
We have music tastes that range from Punk, pop, rock, rap, to alternative music soundscapes and psychedelic instrumental post-punk. Ladyfest Cork will put it’s own stamp on the long history of Ladyfests that have taken place all over the world, ours will be a rocking feminist Do-It-Yourself not-for-profit community based festival mixed with good for the soul yoga, belly dancing, permaculture, chart your cycle, body image, film screenings, discussions and chill out areas to get to know your fellow Ladyfesters! Our Visual Art exhibition will showcase art, performance and video from ohmigod talented female artists along with music, giant origami(!) and zine making workshops. You can touch stuff, paint stuff, stick stuff to stuff and generally make a mess in our collaborative public art projects.
There’s so much to say, so many issues- we hope that this weekend will serve to provoke thought around these issues and create a weekend long space where these feminist ideas can be explored and brought to the fore. Cos y’know feminism isn’t really an f-word, its just about us all trying to get along and us all getting a chance to be heard.
Its the little ripples that make a difference. Go to a gig, a workshop or a performance and learn something new. We hope you’ll enjoy it! Now go turn that music up loud and have a dance!!!
Tonnes of grá from the Ladyfest Ladies of Cork.
