Seraphine Collective’s proudest accomplishment to date as an organization has been the production of four years of our annual summer music festival, Best Fest Forever (BFF) Fest, a music performance and educational event. The intent of BFF Fest was to foster authentic relationships among Detroit residents, community artists, activists, and educators, and to celebrate, support, and highlight women, femme, queer, transgender, and POC performers in particular. In four years, 251 musicians and bands have performed for 700 attendees with almost 90% of the artists comprised of women, femmes, queer, transgender, and POC performers from Detroit or the surrounding area.


BFF Fest is a SAFE SPACE and a supportive environment free from any discrimination or oppressive actions of any kind. Keep it cool, kids.

We hope you’ll come hang out, listen to great music, learn something new, support your friends, and ideally leave inspired to form your own band, make your own art, and organize your own shows and festivals.

BFF Fest loves change and growth. Please let us know how we can improve the festival and feel free to send us band/artist suggestions for next year! Contact us here:

BFF 2 & BFF 3 were kindly sponsored by Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs.

BFF Fest is a fundraiser for Seraphine Collective, an inclusive, supportive and active community of female-identified musicians and artists designed to foster creative expression and camaraderie among feminists in Detroit.
