Female Focused Festival Planned For New York

NEW YORK, NY (CelebrityAccess) — Brooklyn will be the host of The Other Festival, a new festival event that is aimed at female artists and creators.

The event includes workshops, talks and demos on a variety of topics, from design to branding to vlogging; includes a marketplace for female makers and concludes with more traditional festival music fare, with female artists.

"I moved to New York because it was a place that welcomed and positively encouraged entrepreneurship, disruption and creativity. And Brooklyn has one of the highest concentrations of female entrepreneurs in America so it was only fitting that we hold our first festival there," said Dee Poku, founder and CEO, WIE and creator of The Other Festival. "This is a one-of-kind event, a place to be inspired and to discover what's next. Women in music, fashion, art and technology are at the forefront of innovation in America and I'm looking forward to gathering these mold breakers together. The future is most definitely female."

Participants in The Other Festival come from the worlds of music, art, food, design, photography, technology and fashion. No lineup has yet been announced for the event, which will take place on June 11th.

Live Nation has been announced as an event partner for the festival.- Staff Writers
