Downtown Milford Inc. (DMI) and Gable Music Ventures presented an outstanding music festival in Milford on Saturday, September 30. The all female-led musicians kept crowds entertained all evening, performing cover songs as well as original music.

“Wow! What a night!” Gable Entertainment posted on social media on Sunday. “Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support these incredible artists, this community and our mission of highlighting women in music!”

Ladybug Festival is the largest concert in the country featuring a 100 percent female-fronted lineup. The festival, which began as a downtown block party, has grown to become one of the most popular events in southern Delaware.

“It was amazing to see everyone downtown enjoying the music,” Shelby Nash DiCostanzo, President of DMI, said. “This is such a popular festival and we are so excited to bring it to the downtown area. The fact that it is designed to empower female artists is just icing on the cake.”

Stages were set up on Walnut Street, at My Sister’s Fault, on the LaHacienda patio, the library amphitheater, Gallery 37 and inside at the Music School of Delaware. Bands included Fuzaholics, Lena Daitz, Kerry Hallett and the concert headliner was Nitro Nitra.

DiCostanzo stated that DMI is always looking for new and exciting events.

“We are currently looking for volunteers who would like to help us bring more events to Milford,” DiCostanzo said. “In addition, we are seeking board and committee members who can help us draw even more attention to downtown.
