Inaugural B*TCH FEST celebrates women who rock


Hundreds of fans and music lovers of all ages from across the LA area made the trek to Van Nuys for the first-year B*TCH FEST at White Oak Music and Arts. Masterminded by indie newcomers BTCHKRFT, the fest boasted a lineup of twenty female-fronted bands, charming DIY vibes and memories that will last forever. All for the low, low price of 12 bucks.

Highlights included an exquisite showing from Moonily that had everyone grooving along and impromptu dance parties during Suzie True and headliners BTCHKRFT. B*TCH FEST got especially lit during second stage openers Kosher Green‘s propulsive set and New York punk trio Thick‘s LA debut. Aside from music, an array of vendors sold the likes of poems, art prints, bongs, vegan tacos and juggalo face paint between the fests two stages.

B*TCH FEST had all the makings of an annual tradition and rite of passage, so much that several attendees remarked that it just might be the new Beach Goth, only better.
