KELOWNA – A two-day music and arts festival featuring an all-female lineup is coming back to Kelowna for the second year in a row.

The Female Arts and Music Exhibition (FAME) is a collection of female promoters, DJ’s, artists, musicians, technicians and engineers who share a passion for electronic music and art. It takes place September 5-7 at Heartland Ranch in Joe Rich.

The festival not only showcases female talent but also sponsors workshops from across Western Canada. Jamie Magnusson is the founder of the exhibition. She says only 10 per cent of performers at music festivals worldwide are female.

“This deficiency represents an enormous imbalance of creative potential that can be showcased, nurtured and celebrated,” she says. “Our mission is to display our amazing and ever-evolving female talent by shining a spotlight and exhibiting their skills through a platform that is just for them.”

FAME offers a two day camping experience, featuring a roster of Western Canadian female performers, artists and DJ’s. Activities include health, healing and wellness workshops as well as yoga, dance, hula hoop, super foods and meditation.

Tickets are $80 for the full weekend or $60 for the Saturday main feature. They can be purchased online here or at Hemp City in Kelowna and West Kelowna.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.
