Girls Music Day
July 23rd at SONOS Studio
DICE announce second girls music day, inspiring young women to get involved in music.
Jen Long, Music Editor at DICE, said: “We ran the first Girls Music Day in March and it was such an enthralling and rewarding experience, I can’t wait to do it all again. There aren’t enough women headlining festivals, running record labels, or working mixing desks, and complaining on social media won’t fix that. Instead we need positive action, and it’s a testament to our industry that so many brilliant women have offered up their time to help inspire the next generation.”
The event will run from 11am to 4pm at Sonos Studio and feature talks, QnAs and tutorials covering everything from drumming to guitar, PR to A&R, and even a few on the day surprises.
Tickets are free and open to girls and women aged 14 - 24 via a ballot on DICE.
Speakers on the day will include renown headline artist Laura Marling, BBC 1Xtra DJ and club promoter Jamz Supernova, experienced PR and founder of Totem PR Naomi Williams, live production coordinator Laura Taylor from Everybody’s Management, globally adored singer-songwriter Lucy Rose, Virgin EMI Marketing Manager Helen Kennedy, Head of A&R at Method Music Jamila Scott, and sort after freelance drummer best known for her role in Metronomy, Anna Prior.
It’s all taking place at the brand new Sonos Studio in Shoreditch, a social and collaborative space that connects artists and audiences through experiences in music, art and technology.
