We have very exciting news about LOUD WOMEN Fest 5!
First, we have just been awarded a grant by Arts Council England, so we can make the festival bigger and better than ever! This wonderful help means we can now ensure especially that all the bands playing get maximum coverage in the media, before and after the festival.
Given the current situation though, we thought that planning a festival in September might prove to be over-ambitious, so we are now moving it to 20 March 2021!
The venue is 229 The Venue – a fantastic Central London two-stage venue with fab big stages, lots of space backstage, a separate bar to chill out in etc. The Arts Council grant will allow us to hire really great backline for the bands to use too.
Additionally, the grant will allow us to put out a compilation CD of music by the bands playing the Fest, which will hopefully help the bands get heard long after the Fest.
We have a very exciting shortlist of artists already, and a few confirmed today who we can not wait to tell you about! For the final few spots we are going to keep applications to play the Fest open until 15 May 2020, to give more bands the chance to get in touch.
Tl;dr LOUD WOMEN Fest 5 is happening 20 March 2021, it’s going to be amazeballs, and if you’re in an awesome womxn-powered band you have until 15 May to apply here. Ticket links coming soon!
