Sunday August 4th at Blackpool Winter GardensMore info on Rebellion Festival HERE:

Feminist DIY collective LOUD WOMEN have announced that they will be partnering with the Introducing Stage at Rebellion Festival in Blackpool, programming and hosting a one-day lineup of female and non-binary powered bands making shockwaves on the alternative and punk scene. LOUD WOMEN Sunday August 4th on the Rebellion Introducing Stage will feature hotly tipped and fast rising futurestars such as Fräulein, Baby Said and The Empty Page.

LOUD WOMEN’s founder Cassie Fox said of the collaboration:

“Rebellion is (by far) the UK’s biggest punk festival, and the Introducing Stage offers new, DIY bands the chance to play to an enormous crowd who absolutely love discovering new bands. So, it’s the perfect place to showcase some of the band’s LOUD WOMEN champions! We all know that the most exciting and innovative new alternative music is coming from women and non-binary musicians, who for so long have been under-represented on big stages … we have a great opportunity here to bring a fresh new flavour to the classic punk scene.”

On the lineup selections, she said:

“All of the bands on this lineup have either already blown our minds and stolen our hearts on LOUD WOMEN Fest stages or have recently arrived on my ‘must-book’ list! There’s a beautifully eclectic mix of righteous alt-rock from The Empty Page, NXKXTA and Playing Alice; pounding punk rock from the likes of Baby Said, Hipersona, Baby Teeth and The Dollheads; riot grrrl inspired disco rage from The Red Stains and Twat Union; glorious grunge from Fräulein and SNM; and I can’t wait to see what the punks make of electropunx Arch Femmesis!”

Rebellion booker Jonny “Wah Wah” Taylor said:

“When Jennie [Russell-Smith, Rebellion’s co-founder] and I talked about the idea of LOUD WOMEN doing this … to us, it was a no-brainer and an absolutely vital thing to do. The Introducing Stage has always had a high percentage of female and non-binary representation. We put on the best up and coming bands out there. And now to have a day when the representation is 100%, with every band picked on their own merit … it’s gonna show the world that this is not just a movement in itself but also one that the Punks from everywhere will welcome with open arms, and an excited anticipation that LOUD WOMEN Sunday on the RIS could just be one of those special days that people will be talking about for years to come … so get to Rebellion and don’t dare miss out! “

LOUD WOMEN will host the Rebellion Introducing Stage on Sunday 4th August, at Blackpool Winter Gardens. Weekend and day tickets available HERE:
