Sad Grrrls Club announces that the successful Sad Grrrls Festival, Australia’s Largest Female Fronted Music Festival, will be staged in Melbourne as well as Sydney in October this year.
Rachel Maria Cox is the founder and manager at Sad Grrrls Club, a record label that focuses on supporting incredible music from non-male artists around Australia.
According to Hack, 80% of people managing indie labels are men, and 4 in 5 people registered with APRA are men. What’s more, only 26% of the average Australian festival lineup is non-male. To do their bit to combat the male dominated festival trend, and encourage more girls and non binary babes to get their music out there, Sad Grrrls Club started Sad Grrrls Festival last year in Sydney, compiling a fully non-male festival lineup.
2016 sees the festival heading down to Melbourne as well. The festival is on in Melbourne on October 1st and Sydney on October 8th, moving to bigger venues at The Reverence Hotel and The Factory Floor.
They’ve managed an absolutely killer lineup on both dates, too, with Jaala, Jess Ribeiroand Camp Cope getting top billing in Melbourne and Le Pie, Coda Conduct and Twin Cavernsheadlining in Sydney.
