About LOUD WOMEN Fest
“The festival aims to show how many incredible female-powered bands are out there.” – Cassie Fox, LOUD WOMEN Founder.
The perfect antidote to a summer full of male-heavy festival line-ups, LOUD WOMEN will feature some 20 women and non-binary artists over two stages. Cassie Fox, Founder and BIMM Institute lecturer, says: “The festival aims to show how many incredible female-powered bands are out there – as a counter to every other festival, those that seem to struggle even to book 50% female acts.”
The slightly shuffled final line-up comprises a plethora of UK and Ireland-based talent, including Doncaster rockers Bang Bang Romeo, previously seen supporting P!nk in stadiums around Europe. You’ll also see garage rock duo ARXX, who were named in NME’s Top 100 Essential New Artists for 2020, and Brighton-based genre-blenders ĠENN, who played The Great Escape’s online edition earlier this year. There’s also BIMM alumni IDestroy, ARXX, and LibraLibra.
The LOUD WOMEN Fest 5 line-up includes:
- Bang Bang Romeo
- Breakup Haircut
- The Empty Page
- Hagar the Womb
- Honey Joy
- I, Doris
- Jelly Cleaver
- Lilith Ai
- Murder Club
- Piney Gir
- Sister Ghost
- + a SECRET band!

Who are LOUD WOMEN?
LOUD WOMEN is a not-for-profit organisation headed by founder musician Cassie Fox. Their mission is to put “ more women on stage, and turn up the volume”. Cassie started the initiative in London in 2015, frustrated at the lack of performance opportunities open to female-driven bands in the grassroots music scene.
LOUD WOMEN has a host of projects, including live music nights and festivals powered by women and non-binary musicians, an active blog, Ezineezine, social media communities, and even a record label. The group has chapters worldwide, including New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville, Canada, Ireland, and Australia.
‘Reclaim These Streets’, their collaborative single for Women’s Aid, featured 64 artists, including Siobhan Fahey, Brix Smith and Patsy Stevenson. The song reached No.3 in the iTunes alternative music chart and received radio support from John Kennedy on Radio X, Tom Robinson and Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music, and BBC Introducing shows the length and breadth of the UK.
