Ladie Killerz is a weekend long, traveling festival, celebrating ladies and their killer skills in all things art, music, film and graffiti!
Ladie Killerz started 4 years ago as a bunch of likeminded, graffiti loving, girls with a taste for trouble, a need to paint, a love of the party and a hankering for a change of scenery. Since the original gathering and paint jam in Brisbane, Ladie Killerz has also hit Adelaide twice now an…d grown into a 3 day festival. The festival in the past has included an all ladie art exhibition and sale, live music gigs, a film fest, and a chance to PARTY and meet other likeminded artists from around Australia, and – the REASON we’re all here – have a MASSIVE all ladie graffiti paint jam!!
This year –Melbourne – will host Ladie Killerz!
from Friday 29th April – Sunday May 1st 2011
And will be held at The Faction, 1-5 Wightman St Footscray
