Ticketing app Dice wants to get more young women into the music industry.
So it’s holding an event in London on 12 March called ‘Girls Music Day’, with tickets free (via a ballot) to women between the ages of 14 and 24.
Its morning session will see DJs and musicians sharing their experiences, before an afternoon focusing on industry jobs like PR, A&R, live and marketing.
“Every year you see the same story – there aren’t enough female headliners at festivals, DJ Top 100s are 100% male, female artists being patronised and objectified,” said Dice’s music editor Jen Long.
“If we want to change this, a blame game isn’t the answer. Instead it’s about getting the great women who currently work in this industry to join forces and inspire the next generation of headliners, label managers, producers, and everything in between.”
