At the beginning of the 90s many bands within the Riot Grrrl movement started a rebellion in order to fight for equal rights on the stage. After so many years we still have a long way to go.
Inspired by the Neska Rock, a small festival in the Basque Country, and the Femme Rebellion tour of the two Spanish bands Milenrama and Penadas por la Ley, we want to bring this spirit to Kiel, Hannover, Bremen and Hamburg and be part of this new attempt.
Four Bands, four locations, a lot of good music, 100% D.I.Y., free from sexism, racism and money-madness.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We want to abolish hierarchies and separation and empower people of all gender to enter to the stage and live their dream of a better world - with positive energy and a lot of electrifying music. No matter what they keep telling you: the stage is for everyone!
Why would you support this project?
Especially in punk scene, where people discuss sexism since long time, actually it is still no matter of course to truly live equality. Therefore, we want to join everyone who shares our issue and fight for a music world, in which - one day - there will be no more hierarchies and no more sexism.
Feel free to join us, help us to make this real and spread the word! Come to the concerts. Let's build a better world!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
With your donations we will be able to pay the printing costs for posters and leaflets to promote the concerts. Furthermore we hope to be able to pay - with your support - the travel costs of the bands. So you are very welcome to donate more than the original funding goal, as we are completely independent of commercial sponsors and prefer to rely on a community that shares our dream ;-)
Who are the people behind the project?
We are a group of people that work as musicians, stage technicians or volunteers in communal centers. As such we do experience in our daily life, how we are regularly inhibited by enduring prejudices and unwritten laws. So many people that due to their gender role don't dare to enter the stage and raise their beautiful voices. We want to change that situation without establishing new separations. We want to give empowering and cheerful examples that inspire people.
