About the festival

Save the dates! SapfoFest is back on 28th - 30th July2023!

that unruly hair three centimetres from the nipple
the imprint of a thick leather belt on a soft belly
the stares of the passers-by when we kiss publicly
breasts finally filling up thanks to hormones
your scent that lingers under my fingernails
a head shaved for the first time
feeling hateful and loving when looking in the mirror
that tattoo covering thin white lines on the wrist


This year, Sapfo invites you to explore the body. The body which is tangible, which connects and separates us, through which we feel the world and each other, which brings us euphoria, which others see and discuss us through, which becomes a pretext to discriminate us, and which we recognize each other by in the crowd, and therefore do not feel alone. The body in which we live, love and fight. Each separately and all together.

SapfoFest is a space where there is no fear or toxic masculinity. Respect, mutual trust and solidarity triumphs here. It’s the freedom to be(come) yourself and to find your community.

SapfoFest is an independent, non-commercial, community-initiated festival providing a much needed collaborative and grounding environment for building tents and queer-feminist community in Lithuania and beyond since 2014. Featuring critical reflection, debate and community self-care, SapfoFest seeks to mobilise and make visible queer-feminist lives in the pursuit of solidarity, emancipation and social change!

SapfoFest is FREE – there are no tickets or charges.

SapfoFest is ACCESSIBLE – we are trying as much as we can to create inclusive space for everybody. If you have individual needs or want to consult us regarding festival conditions, please get in touch.

SapfoFest is INDEPENDENT – fully sustained by the community without any help from institutions. Festival is based on do-it-together principles, so we all create it free of charge sustained only by free will.
