14 Sept 2019 at London’s Dome and Boston Music Room looks set to see the biggest (and best?) LOUD WOMEN Fest yet! Here’s the news we’ve been dying to tell you for months … our final* lineup, in no particular order …
*I mean, as final as anything is that could possibly have slight changes here and there in cases of sickness, injury, best friends throwing last-minute weddings, that sort of thing. But pretty damn final I’d say!
Jemma Freeman and the Cosmic Something ‘s latest single Helen is a Reptile is out now, and you can bid for a copy of a very special edition vinyl pressing in aid of a cause close to Loud Women’s hearts and minds, Music Support UK.
Each 7” single could be described much
like a Masterchef dish as vinyl served three ways! Each disc has been hand
lathe-cut in real time by Brightons 3.45 vinyl. There is a mixture of clear and
black vinyl and the run out groove is engraved with Teabar records Berties’ catch
phrase and mantra for life “Take it easy, but take it!”
The charity copies are available to
bid for from Thursday 00:00 until 23:59 and the winners notified and announced
on Friday 3rd May.
The band are raising money and awareness for Music Support –a registered charity founded and run by people from the UK music industry, for individuals in any area of the UK music industry suffering from mental, emotional and behavioural health disorders. Jemma says:
As a band we feel strongly about raising awareness and understanding of mental health issues on both a personal and structural level within music. It’s important the conversations about mental health can be continued and that practical help is available at the point of crisis and training given to help educate others. A lot of the content of the Cosmic Something deals with mental health issues, specifically Helen is Reptile which deals with intrusive thoughts and suicidal ideation. Members have benefited from the help of music charities to enable us to continue working as musicians so Music Support seemed like the perfect cause.

Massive thanks to everyone who came and celebrated our 3rd birthday last night – what an absolutely lovely night, full of friendly faces, brilliant music, and heaps of fun – exactly the stuff of Loud Women! Awesome performances from Party Fears, GUTTFULL, Feral Five and Spare Rib – check em all out online. There was dancing, cake, a fun raffle, and plotting … our ‘woman in the USA’ was in the house and our plans for LOUD WOMEN NYC are coming along nicely – bring on 2019! 💥
This year’s final line-up for LOUD WOMEN Fest has just been announced, and now includes worldclass artists She Makes War and Efa Supertramp! Here’s a taster of how it’s going to look …
This, the 3rd annual LOUD WOMEN Fest will showcase 21 punk and indie acts in 1 day, over 2 neighbouring stages – The Dome and the Boston Music Room, Tufnell Park, London. Last year’s festival massively sold out, so early ticket-buying is advised!
Plus DJs including Mammory Tapes AND cake stall from Ladies of the Lock – The WI group for Camden, Kentish Town…
This year, we’re taking over The Dome, Tufnell Park and Boston Music Room. Using these two amazing, world-class neighbouring venues we can keep the music constant throughout the day, and make our Fest bigger and better than ever!
* Delicious hot food and cakes.
* Stalls with zines and goodies.
* The best damn day/night out of the year.
Applications from stallholders and zine sellers, other kinds of performers that we haven’t even thought of yet, and any other enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
LOUD WOMEN Fest is back in 2018 – bigger and louder than ever! Building on the massive success of our last two Festivals, we’re expanding to two much larger venues: The Dome, Tufnell Park, and Boston Music Room
