Women took to the streets on Saturday not in protest but in celebration for the fifth annual Ladyfest music festival.
Ladyfest, the female-centric music festival, is expanding from performances on just the lower half of Circuit avenue to the whole block. That means more acts and more vendors.


When asked how many bands will be performing at this year’s LadyfestMV on Saturday night, co-founder Rose Guerin answered: “A million.”


Neither global pandemic nor autumn storm could keep the organizers and musicians of LadyFest from their annual mission: to help Island victims of domestic violence.
A sold-out performance at the Martha's Vineyard Museum Oct. 29 will stream live on Facebook.


In just two years, Ladyfest has gone from Oak Bluffs debutante to belle of the ball. The female-centered live music festival began as a showcase that overflowed the bar in 2017 and took over Circuit avenue in 2018.
