SUPPORT WOMEN THAT ROCK AT SXSW MUSIC FESTIVAL!
“ In 2018, just 19% of music festival lineups were female. Women That Rock seeks to tip these scales and advance gender equality in the music space. By highlighting all-femme-identifying concert lineups, WTR is working to level the playing field of live music opportunities for womxn. ”
Women That Rock is gearing up for its big 2nd annual activation at the SXSW 2020 music festival, which will include a multi-day, multi-artist live music experience.
Women That Rock has a series of three key events scheduled during SXSW - an all-female intimate showcase event at Brew & Brew the evening of March 17th, a collaboration showcase on March 21st with Sofar Sounds ATX at which WTR will curate an all-female bill, and our big Women That Rock showcase event at Hole in the Wall on March 19th, which will feature a lineup of a dozen womxn-fronted bands across two stages for a full venue takeover and 6+ hours of music, entertainment and fun!
For the month of March (in honor of Women's Month!), proceeds from the Women That Rock peacebomb bangle bracelet will go towards supporting this important musical endeavor. With these special, FEMME-FOCUSED events, Women That Rock is creating a presence during the festival that specifically spotlights & celebrates incredible womxn in music.
