Inspired by the Riot Grrrl movement of the early nineties, which saw bands like Bikini Kill encouraging women to come down to the front at gigs, Girls To The Front is a series of shows, hosted by NME, designed to showcase the incredible range of badass women and non-binary artists creating music right now. The music industry is still incredibly gender imbalanced but we’re here to prove that “there aren’t enough female musicians” is just a cop-out excuse by festival and label bosses to not do their bit. Girls To The Front is about creating safe spaces for women to enjoy music and giving a platform to female artists. Come down to the next show. And check out what you’ve missed so far here.
