The Ladybug Music Festival, an annual celebration of women and music kicked off on July 20th and with 5,000 attendees on the first night alone, was a resounding success. Downtown Visions is proud to sponsor this free music festival annually since their very beginning 6 years ago!
The performers this year took girl power to a whole new level! Catriona Sturton drove down from Canada to perform, and even came in a day early to do three promotional performances. This picture is of Catriona singing her soul out, in 92 degree weather (with 70% humidity!)
With 75 acts and 15 venues and 300 artists submissions to be on stage, the best of the best were selected by Gable Music Ventures. From well-known headliners such as Larkin Poe and Nadjah Nicole Pennington from The Voice; to Vocal Clave de Sol from Havana, Cuba who performed inside the Baby Grand, there was a musical performance for everyone!
This was also the first year the festival spanned over two days, bringing more action and performances than ever before! In addition to 25 acts on Friday, July 21st, there were also dance troupes, art and live on-site painting sessions!
Sarah Lamb, a resident that lives within walking distance of all the activity explained, "The bands were quality, it was great to see women rocking out, the crowd and performers were from all over the world and everyone was having a great time! It was awesome seeing Market Street so alive!"
