Girls Music Day

Details have been announced about the next edition of the Dice Girls Music Day. The event aims to “inspire young women to achieve gender equality in the music industry with a day of talks, workshops and panels”.

The next edition of the event, organised by ticketing app Dice, takes place in London on 28 Apr, once again hosted by Jen Long. There will be talks and discussions, plus workshops on songwriting (led by Jess Sharman), music production (led by K Minor and Katie Tavini), and getting a first break in the industry (led by Noisey’s UK Editor Tshepo Mokoena).

Long says about this year’s event: “I’m excited to host Girls Music Day this year, especially with it being such a momentous year of women fighting to be heard. In 2018, the lack of female figures within our industry is shocking, especially with the discouraging gender diversity in this year’s festivals”.

She goes on: “The main purpose is to engage and inspire the young people attending to work in music, to help them develop their career plans, and to bring up the next generation who will help push for equality in the industry. We’ve got an astonishing collection of speakers this year all offering great advice on that first stepping-stone into music. We’d urge all girls to get involved”.
