LONDON, UK (CelebrtiyAccess) – Live music ticketing app Dice has announced details for its fourth annual Girls Music Day.
The event, which will take place Saturday, April 28 and is open to those aged 16 to 24, aims to inspire young women to achieve gender equality in the music industry through a day of talks, workshops, and panels.
This year’s edition will feature some big names including host Jen Long, DJ and BBC Radio 1 presenter Abbie McCarthy and Mercury-nominated band The Big Moon.
Long said: “I’m excited to host Girls Music Day this year, especially with it being such a momentous year of women fighting to be heard. In 2018, the lack of female figures within our industry is shocking, especially with the discouraging gender diversity in this year’s festivals.
“The main purpose is to engage and inspire the young people attending to work in music, to help them develop their career plans, and to bring up the next generation who will help push for equality in the industry. We’ve got an astonishing collection of speakers this year all offering great advice on that first stepping-stone into music. We’d urge all girls to get involved.”
Admission to this event is free. The online application is available here.
