Major music event – with a girl-powered twist coming to Liverpool, this Summer
Liverpool is gearing up to host the UK’s most exciting music event of the Summer – on Saturday 29th July.
WIMIN Festival is a revolutionary event that will showcase an all-female lineup of renowned musicians, to shake up the festival scene, and dismantle sexism in music.
WIMIN Festival’s highly anticipated lineup of esteemed female musicians is set to be released from next month, as an all-female production crew works around the clock to deliver this flagship Liverpool event to music fans from across Britain.
Beyond the impressive roster of live performances across three stages, attendees will be treated to interactive activities, inspiring talks, and stalls from the best of the city’s female-founded independent brands.
In the UK, misogyny continues to permeate the music industry. A staggering 67% of women have experienced sexism in their music careers, according to a study by the Musicians’ Union WIMIN seeks to change these disheartening statistics by creating a platform for women’s voices to be heard and valued.
Festival Director, Holly Tulloch said,
“WIMIN represents a powerful shift in the music industry, creating space for female artists and professionals to take centre stage and shine as they rightfully deserve. Our goal is to challenge the status quo and foster an environment where women can thrive in the industry without limitations or barriers.”
WIMIN’s diverse staff is made up of women with extensive experience and influence in the UK music industry. Through this expert network, the festival is offering mentorship opportunities for local women seeking to launch their career in music, and aims to foster long term outcomes that extend beyond a single day.
