Brandi Carlile’s Girls Just Wanna Weekend music festival will take place Jan. 30–Feb.3, 2019 at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico. The brand new destination concert vacation will feature an all female-fronted lineup produced by Cloud 9 Adventures in partnership with The Bowery Presents. In addition to multiple shows by Carlile, Girls Just Wanna Weekend will feature Maren Morris, Indigo Girls, Margo Price, Patty Griffin, Lucius, KT Tunstall, The Secret Sisters and Ruby Amanfu.
“Mainstream festivals in the U.S. habitually exclude women as headline artists equal to men,” Carlile says. “I was brought up by Lilith Fair to believe that men and women enjoy live music equally and that women can not only headline a festival—they can BE a festival. I’m proud to announce that our festival has an ALL female-fronted lineup. I would absolutely LOVE to see a ton of men there supporting women in rock and roll, I want to see mothers with children, single people, LGBTQ brothers and sisters letting it all go for a weekend together in harmony (with bottomless tequila on hand to assist).”
Tickets to Girls Just Wanna Weekend go on sale to the public Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 12:00 p.m. ET. Members of the Bramily Fan Alliance—Carlile’s official fan club—will get access to opt-in to an exclusive pre-sale through the Bramily website until Wednesday, July 25.
