Kicking off on Sunday April 14, 2019, Summer Dreaming is a new, alcohol free, female led, music and arts femme festival that celebrates the female and gender diverse music and creative talents of Melbourne’s inner North. Organised by a diverse group of young women, Summer Dreaming is tackling the gender imbalance in the creative industries, both on stage and in its development.

Taking place on the greens of Thornbury Bowls Club, the event will run from 12-5pm, and focus on the role that music and art play in creating community. On one stage, Summer Dreaming will shine a spotlight on a predominantly female and gender diverse line-up, with a soft-pop sound.

Live music will be provided by femme acts On Diamond, Chitra, and Nightlight, with DJ Shell Ley spinning tunes throughout the rest of the day. In between sets, patrons will be able to enjoy the new Femme Affairs Programming, which features the Big Feminist Sing, zumba, zine making, meditation and more. For only $20,

patrons will have access to all the music, programs, and food, all of which is all included in the cost.

“We want to create an all inclusive, welcoming environment, and hope that through our Femme Affairs program people will be walking away with three new friends, at least!” says Operations Manager, Lucinda Walravens, 25. Alongside Lucinda, putting together the event is a young, diverse, all female team, who have been hired on personal merit, and are learning on the job with professional guidance. The aim of the project is to forego the normally mandatory years of experience, and to learn while coordinating.

In creating a space that fellow young women and gender diverse people can enter, feel welcome, and enjoy themselves, the team want to remove any barriers of entry that exist. “Events are notoriously so expensive,”says Business Manager Kim Clarke, 24. “How often do you walk into an event, and spend $10 on a pint, just because you want something to do with your hands? We want to remove as many barriers as possible, which includes having a low price.” With this in mind, Summer Dreaming have a number of Equity tickets available, and encourages anyone who is unable to afford a ticket to get in contact. This is a party that shouldn’t be missed, and a community to love being a part of.
