Today, Loud Women have announced that Doncaster/Sheffield rockers Bang Bang Romeo will be headlining their fifth festival, which is set to take place at 229 London on 20th March 2021. The Loud Women team are promising to turn the volume up even higher next year, as they’ve received a much needed grant from the Arts Council.
Designed to celebrate and support women in the DIY, punk and rock music scenes, the Loud Women Festival has showcased some of our favourite artists, including; Dream Nails, The Menstrual Cramps, ARXX and Petrol Girls. The team received over 500 applications from across the globe from artists wanting to play the forthcoming festival, and there are still more than 20 artists to be announced on the line-up.
Loud Women Founder Cassie Fox says: “The aim of the festival is to show how many incredible womxn-powered bands are out there, as a counter to every other festival, those that struggle to even book 50% female acts. In starting and growing the Loud Women community, I wanted to curate top quality, safe-space gigs that showcased some of the awesome womxn-powered bands in the scene, and to create a community of womxn musicians to support each other. I am super-excited that Bang Bang Romeo are coming to play LOUD WOMEN Fest 5 – they are just explosive live, and Stars is such a driven and inspiring frontwoman with a phenomenal voice. The perfect headliner for a festival celebrating female musical power!”
