One week to go!

Ladyfest is next weekend (wow! fun!) and we are so excited! And right now, there’s a few things we could really use assistance with:

1) Sign up for on-site shifts:

2) Bring or make food. We need to feed the Ladyfest attendees and bands all weekend. And we’re gonna do it potluck style! If you can bring or make some food, that’d be super great.

3) Spread the word! We still have a week to get the word out, so please share our event on Facebook and invite your friends:

Are you excited about Ladyfest yet? If not, maybe this will do it for you. We talk Ladyfest Easthampton 2001 & 2011, the one year anniversary of Flywheel’s grand reopening & scratch the surface with all of the incredible vendors, bands & workshops we’ll be hosting!



Full schedule & tickets!

We just posted the (almost) complete day-by-day schedule for Ladyfest! Go check it out & stay tuned for a few surprises! We’ve also made tickets available via Paypal right here, or if you prefer, you can get them in person at any Flywheel show, from the Flywheel website, or at a number of Western Mass record stores (Turn It Up, Mystery Train, Feeding Tube & Platterpus Records – coming soon!). Three-day passes are available for the entire weekend, as well as individual day passes for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Love!

The Ronettes aren't playing Ladyfest, but we still love 'em.
