Help us raise up this year’s fest!
It’s a huge party. Anything goes, and anything can happen.
The fest aims to close the on-stage gender gap by making space for new people to climb into the spotlight. We’ve seen Gatas y Vatas give rise to many new performers who went on to continue playing year-round, booking shows, starting bands and going on tour.
GyV has also sparked a series of compilation albums, companion zines, art shows, benefit parties and workshops.
The people who organize the festival are volunteers, and all funding goes toward basics like venue fees, materials for merchandise (handmade by us!), and paying performers.
