Event date: 2022-06-04

This June 3-4, more than 15 local DJs and regional acts will hit the stage at Prairie Street Live! in Fayetteville, AR for the second annual Her Set Her Sound Music Festival.

The two-day event, a first for the festival, will highlight Her/Them performers in music and creative arts who set the scene with their moves and sounds! All performances will take place at Prairie Street Live, a laid-back local outdoor venue on the south side of Fayetteville’s entertainment district. Genres will be as diverse as the performers themselves, ranging the spectrum from House, Disco, Soul, Latin EDM, Drum & Bass, Hip-Hop, and beyond. While the stage belongs to the ladies and theydies, the festival experience itself is for everybody who appreciates HER!

While Northwest Arkansas has long been the home of DJs and MCs that are known for curating vibes for everything from local radio to SEC tournaments, the pool has traditionally been dominated by men. Her Set Her Sound itself is a bold movement, being the first festival in NWA committed to elevating the inspiring women worth looking out for in the DJing, music, and creative world.

Local favorites DJ Girlfriend, DJ Raquel, and DJ Susie Q are a few of the tenacious, skilled creatives joining a small group of emerging talents at HSHS Music Fest. The full lineup of artists and MCs that will be featured are listed here and on the Her Set Her Sound Festival Poster below:

Beyond the smooth sets from your favorite local DJs and artists, there will be food and merchandise available for purchase, a local makHER’s market on Saturday, and adult beverages - don’t forget your ID! Expect spoken word performances, community activations, and more as festival goers gather in celebration of all things HER! 

Tickets are available in multiple combinations and range from $15 for AftHER Party Only tickets to $125 for a TrendsetHER Weekend VIP Pass. Arkansas residents with a valid Arkansas shipping address on their orders will be eligible for $10 off General Admission Passes for each day of the festival.

Doors to the Her Set Her Sound Music Festival will open at 5:30pm on Friday, June 3 and at 5:00pm on Saturday, June 4, though TrendsetHER Pass holders will be granted early admission. Organizers have not yet released the festival map or full schedule, but you can follow the Her Set Her Sound Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.

The majority of proceeds from the Her Set Her Sound Music Festival will be earmarked for more inclusive programming to fund and invest in women and gender diverse creatives and entrepreneurs. For more information about Her Set Her Sound, visit hersethersound.com
