BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo, Fern Ford (The Big Moon) and Denai Moore are among the speakers at DICE’s Girl’s Music Day.
Taking place at London’s Sonos Studio on 12 March, the event will include a number of workshops and sessions aimed at encouraging young women to pursue a career in the music industry.
The event will be split into two parts: a live music session hosted by female artists in the morning and a symposium with talks from Rough Trade, Transgressive Records, Because Music and Caroline International amongst others in the afternoon.
Jen Long, DICE music editor, said: ‘Every year you see the same story – there aren’t enough female headliners at festivals, DJ Top 100s are 100 percent male, female artists being patronised and objectified. If we want to change this, a blame game isn’t the answer.
‘Instead it’s about getting the great women who currently work in this industry to join forces and inspire the next generation of headliners, label managers, producers, and everything in between.’
A rare inside look at the sector, speakers will share personal anecdotes, tips for breaking into the industry, and take questions from the audience.
All sessions are free and open to girls and women aged 14-24 via a ballot on DICE.
