Hold the presses and save the date! From the heart of London’s DIY punk scene comes LOUD WOMEN Fest, an annual all-dayer run by Cassie Fox (GUTTFULL and The Wimmins’ Institute) and her team which, as the name suggests, showcases the best of loud women musicians.
Taking place on the 2nd September 2017, LOUD WOMEN has moved on from its previous venue at T. Chances in Tottenham to DIY Space For London. This year’s line up includes Hands Off Gretel, Petrol Girls, The Twistettes, Sink Ya Teeth, Dream Nails, Baby Arms, GUTTFULL, Lillith Ai, LIINES, Gaptooth, PUSSYLIQUOR, Grace Savage, The Baby Seals, Velodrome, Party Fears, Lea Andrews and Beverley Kills, who will be spread across two stages. There are more acts are still to be announced throughout the coming months too!
Last year’s festival saw the likes of The Ethical Debating Society, The Franklys, DOLLS, Desperate Journalist, Fightmilk and Argonaut take to the stage. As well as the annual festival, LOUD WOMEN put on regular gigs in London, run a monthly ezine and, new for 2017, are launching a compilation CD featuring artists from their Hall of Fame later this month.
