  • Meet the Women of MOTHERSHIP...💜 "What these conversations made me realize (it lasted till 2am), is that much like being a human being, all of these topics have a spectrum and it’s important to discuss all of it!." A Women's Festival & Retreat October, 13-15. 2017 💥Tickets: www.mothershipfest.com http://onourmoon.com/the-women-of-mothership/
  • Looking for one seat heading out to the desert from West Hollywood Friday morning!
  • Hi ladies/co-volunteers! Does anyone have space in their tent/RV for me? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
  • So what's included this year in a MOTHERSHIP ticket you ask?... 1. Camping. every ticket to MOTHERSHIP includes a 10x10 camping space. There is ample room, so if you use a little bit more space, it's all good! Bring that monster tent. 2. Workshops. It's all included! We've got over 30 hands-on workshops covering everything from chess to ****. Craft sessions with **** Jill, all materials (and hugs) included! All of our workshops and supplies are included in your pass. Many come with awesome giveaways from our favorite brands as well. 3. Music. At MOTHERSHIP all of our music is 100% women/womxn. As in, only chicks on stage. MOTHERSHIP is one of the only fests around pulling this off - and we are really proud to turn the sexism problem in festivals on it's head. Check out our lineup below! 4. Panels. I know right? Panels don't sound very fun. But when women like, Tegan and Sara & Tasya Van Ree are high-key the panelists, it's bound to be a good time. We keep it interactive as well. So come with questions. 5. Self-Adornment Area. Many of of you were so confused by this last year, that our costumes were all returned to us! We want you to keep everything. Need a sweater/costume/hat etc.? Come and find it in our costume area and take it home. Have fun with it. We've also got bio-glitter, body painting, henna, flash tats and even a hair stylist who will be doing braiding & weaving in metallics to our locks. It's all free. 5. Booze & Beverages. Our beverage area is totally stocked with pressed juices, beer, cocktails/mocktails & plenty of H2O. Everything is free, but 100% of donations will go to the Tegan and Sara Foundation benefiting the empowerment of women and girls. 6. Drum Circles. Are you ready to jam out? We've got hundreds of drums and a rad teacher who's been creating these magical women's circles for over 10 years. 7. Showers. We've got some super cute outdoor showers. Private stalls and even some bio soap for those who forgot it! (Flushing toilets too). Beginner campers - you got this! 8. Food Trucks. So the food isn't free, but access to the trucks are. We've got great options this year (including things for all you vegetarians!) Tacos, Soul Food & Acai Bowls to name a few! 9. Art. The artistic talent this year is next level. Be sure to walk around the fest to view and participate in our experiential, large-scale art installations. Highlights include live painting by, Relax It's Only Flesh and an Artgasm experiment from Lioness. 10. Safe Space. Our space is for women, by women. We are trans and nonbinary inclusive. And aside from a few unavoidable exceptions, we are one of the only festivals in the world that is ALL women/womxn. So let it all hang out!

  • Hi co-Volunteers! I'm scheduled to start helping on Thursday and returning on Sunday. I'm wondering if I could ride in with anyone from LA on Thursday and ride back with anyone on Sunday and if there is room to bunk/tent with anyone who has space? I'm not sure how the camping portion works. Any help is appreciated! xo Tiffany

  • More on MOTHERSHIP! "It is no surprise that women are continuing to challenge the status quo in every way they can find. Founder of the Mothership Festival, Laura Wise is no exception to this movement." - Trend Prive Magazine www.mothershipfest.com
  • “For so long, women’s health and women’s sexuality has been repressed and so under-studied and under-discussed, so it’s like the Madonna and the ***** thing, right? We can’t win. Moving into this safe, feminist space [that is MOTHERSHIP], being able to talk about that stuff is really liberating, and people are really curious and people are really excited. Clearly people want this kind of information and want to learn more, and it’s a safe place to do that.” - GirlTalkHQ Oct. 13-15, 2017 Coachella, CA www.mothershipfest.com
  • We're hosting an interactive panel with Tegan and Sara and we want your questions! What do you want to hear from them? Tell us your ideas below!
  • "MOTHERSHIP seeks to be different than other female-oriented events. They want the women attending to have a full experience and celebrate themselves and the bond of sisterhood. While the festival embraces feminism, Wise realizes that not everyone is ready to do the same until they are exposed to what gender equality truly is." - MISSBISH

  • Hey there women, any solo travelers out there looking to share a space at the retreat? I'll be traveling from Louisiana, so I'll have a hard time bringing gear.
  • "One thing that I’ve noticed in a lot of women’s events in particular is that they often have just one focus like yoga and spirituality, for example. I wanted this festival to be more active and reflective of the fact that women are multi-layered and well-rounded humans. We have such a broad spectrum of interests and the programming is reflective of that — there are many activations such as meditative yoga, **** and sexual pleasure workshops, drum circles, musical outlets, and arts, crafts, and lots of glitter." / Posture Magazine 💙Oct. 13-15, 2017 in Coachella, CA💙 Tickets: http://www.mothershipfest.com/
