The Mama Cash Feminist Festival kicks off at 22:00 on 7 March (the night before International Women’s Day) with #StrictlySilk at Radio Radio in Amsterdam! GET YOUR TICKETS HERE

#StrictlySilk is a dance party exclusively for women featuring an all-women DJ lineup. Every aspect of the event is curated, produced, presented and performed by women, from the bouncers and security lineup, to the service providers, technicians, hospitality staff, vendors and more! All women are welcome to attend, from diverse religions, interests, sectors, sexual orientations and gender identities etc, to a space dedicated completely to their rest, safety, joy and freedom. 

This exciting, one-of-a-kind event was first conceptualised and executed by the Nest, a collective of Kenyan multidisciplinary arts practitioners. After four wildly successful editions in Nairobi, #StrictlySilk makes its international debut in Amsterdam at the Mama Cash Feminist Festival! Get ready to enjoy incredible DJ mixes, dance, hang out and feel great in an incredible community, to kick off the Feminist Festival!
