BFF FEST says
BFF (Best Fest Forever) Fest is an all-ages inclusive summer music festival in Detroit created to highlight, celebrate, and promote the talents of Michigan’s diverse community of musicians and artists. By prioritizing the participation of women, people of color and LGBTQIA performers BFF Fest strives to be progressive, modern, and thoughtful in the curation of it's lineup. We hope to begin building a stronger, more supportive, and most importantly more diverse and balanced music scene in Detroit/Michigan/the Midwest/North America/the world/universe/galaxy/everything.

Inspired by feminist ethos, BFF Fest aims to be accessible to those who may typically feel excluded from or underrepresented in Detroit’s independent music scenes, and encourages honest expression of both unity and differences. Seraphine Collective hopes our Fest can provide a forum for authentic new connections and thoughtful exploration of how music intersects with identity, community consciousness and activism efforts in Detroit.

BFF Fest is a SAFE SPACE and a supportive environment free from any discrimination or oppressive actions of any kind. Keep it cool kids.
