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. Seraphine Collective and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit present the 2nd Annual BFF Fest on Saturday, July 25, 2015 from 2pm-midnight at MOCAD. Seraphine Collective is an inclusive, supportive and active community of female-identified musicians and artists designed to foster creative expression and camaraderie among feminists in Detroit.
The Festival line-up includes R. Ring, Gashrat, Bonehead, Blizzard Babies, Electric Wiccans, and Prude Boys. The festival focuses on the participation of women, people of color and LGBTQA performers; BFF Fest strives to be progressive, modern, and thoughtful in the curation of its lineup and fosters consciousness toward building a stronger, supportive, and most importantly, a more diverse and balanced scene in Detroit and the Midwest region.
