Sad Grrrls Fest have announce an absolutely massive lineup of female and non-binary musicians spanning two cities.

Taking place this October for its second year in a row, Sad Grrrls Fest is all about promoting gender diversity and showcasing female and non-binary musicians. Boasting a huge lineup in each city, each festival will have three stages for bands, food stalls, markets and DJs.

Run by booking agency/record label Sad Grrrls Club, the festival aims to contrast the overall trends of representation of female and non-binary musicians at music festivals across the country.

Festival organiser Rachel Maria Cox says, “Sad Grrrls Fest is as much about the audience as it is the people up on stage. Music needs to be safe and inclusive for people of all genders, sexual orientations, races, religions and socio-economic status if we want to really make meaningful change to representation by the numbers.”

The Melbourne festival will be held at the Reverence Hotel Footscray on Saturday October 1st, and the Sydney festival will be held at the Factory Floor, Marrickville the following Saturday October 8th.  Check out the massive lineup below and get your tickets here.
