Playlist: Boudica Festival

As Boudica Festival readies for its third edition, we’ve handed over the playlist reigns to the organisers.

The festival will return to The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry, in October to showcase the best up and coming womxn, and non-binary artists in music.

The event features a specially curated lineup of live music across three stages to celebrate inspirational womxn and non-binary performers across a variety of genres.

In line with an increased awareness of male dominated line ups, Boudica is helping to redress the balance with its long-term aim to have a female events crew, using the expertise of womxn sound engineers, lighting technicians and stage managers.

As ever, this year’s bill is a fine example of female and non-binary talent operating in the music industry right now.

For a taste of what the festival has to offer, dig in below…

TUSKS – Be Mine
Dreamy shoegazy guitar followed paired with intense, anthemic choruses. Not unlike My Bloody Valentine. What’s not to like?!

Virginia Wing – The Second Shift
It’s hard to choose just one track from Virginia Wing’s latest masterpiece. The Second Shift is ‘about society’s tendency to diminish and undermine women’s contributions to… everything.’ Danceable synth-pop with a serious message.

GHUM – Saturn
Grunge-y noirish post punk from London based quartet GHUM. We can’t wait to watch them close the festival.

TrueMendous – She Know’s She Nice
Definitely one to watch! An impressive storyteller with a sense of humour and tonnes of attitude.

Los Bitchos – Pista (Great Start)
Sunshine, dancing, tequila, fun times.

Screaming Toenail – Crystal Queer (not on Spotify)
Queer feminist decolonial punks.

Dorcha – Bruiser
Birmingham based Dorcha will take you on an experimental journey through layers of synths and heavy beats.

Bryony Williams – Little Tree
One of the ‘25 to watch in the Midlands in 2019’ by BBC WM and shortlisted for ‘Best Record’ by Birmingham Music Awards 2019.
