LOUD WOMEN

LOUD WOMEN FESTIVAL is The UK’s biggest women-led music festival and its landing in London on September 3rd.

The first LOUD WOMEN Fest launches at Tottenham’s T.Chances this September, boasting 25 of the most hotly-tipped women-led punk, rock, indie and pop bands in the UK right now.

There has been explosion in the female live music scene, with at least ten new women-led live music nights starting this year to cater for a new wave of talent, along with multiple new women-led music festivals across the country and a new women-only stage at Glastonbury Festival.

LOUD WOMEN Promotions, led by Cassie Fox of The Wimmins’ Institute and Thee Faction, is part of this new movement and has already showcased 42 women-led acts via 17 shows since October 2015. The shows have taken place across London to packed audiences of all genders and raised thousands of pounds for women’s charities. LOUD WOMEN’s first festival will take place on 3rd September with 25 female-led acts including Louise DistrasDream Nails and the up-and-coming Vodun.

Following on from last year’s all-male festival line-ups controversy, Cassie Fox formed LOUD WOMEN in October 2015 after noticing how male-dominated bands listings were.

She said: “I looked at the list of gigs – hundreds of them – all starring men with guitars, male DJs, male organisers, and I thought I’d try putting on a women-led live music night. The response has been overwhelming! Female musicians are constantly faced with sexism – from the male promoters who automatically put you bottom of the bill as a ‘warm-up’ act for the man bands, the ‘proper music’; to the sound guys who mansplain how to operate your own equipment. I know one all-girl band who use a ficticious male ‘manager’ for email correspondence with venues, because ‘he’ tends to get a better response for bookings. It’s this sort of sexism that LOUD WOMEN seeks to wipe out, so we can just get on with the rocking.”

LOUD WOMEN Fest will take place at T.Chances in Tottenham on 3 September, from 12pm to 2am. A limited number of press passes are available, please contact us for more information.
