Charlotte Cardin, The Vaselines, more to play Venus Fest 2019

The festival will run from September 20 to 22

Venus Fest is returning this year for the third time! The three-day female and non-binary artist-focused festival will run from September 20th to September 22nd. The lineup includes Montreal pop artist Charlotte Cardin, Scottish indie icons The Vaselines, Canadian artist Tei Shi, and so many others!

“Venus Fest is held by a team that understands the need for this festival, from a personal standpoint. We are making decisions that account for, and correct, our history and experience,” founder Aerin Fogel explains. “Our industry will remain fractured until every music organization is working with underrepresented people who have the wisdom that comes from that deeply personal place.”

The festival will also include art installations, live visuals, DIY demos and songwriting shops for youth! Check out the full lineup and schedule below.
