Back in January, the second annual Riverwest FemFest brought more than 50 acts to four venues in as many days. Beyond being a great celebration of the outstanding and important things women are doing in Milwaukee music, the grassroots festival also managed to raise more than $10,000 for Date Rape Awareness Milwaukee and Milwaukee Women’s Center.

Just when you thought the female-focused winter affair couldn’t get any better, FemFest organizers have put together 2017’s festivities, which will take place at a variety of Riverwest venues over five nights in January. The sites haven’t been announced yet, but we now know virtually all the bands, DJs, poets, artists, and comedians who will be taking part the third annual Riverwest FemFest (January 18-22). The daily lineups and schedule will be announced in a few weeks. In the meantime, here’s who’s performing.
