This marks the first year the fest has officially been two nights, and the third year overall. Organized by local feminist group Seraphine Collective, the festival will also include 15 bands on Saturday, July 30 at El Club, with the lineup to be announced soon. On Sunday, July 31, there will be daytime workshops and a clothing swap. If that's the lineup they've announced for the first night, we have high expectations for the rest of the fest!

As written on their Facebook page: "BFF 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 its 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.
