Four female-focused music events in London this March

Kate Lloyd

With International Women's Day coming up this month, here are five cool female-focused music events coming your way over the next few weeks.

Finding the Female Headliner

Headlined by punk feminist choir Gaggle, this women-only bill combines talks by feminist speakers with sets by female DJs and a 16-piece female rap group from Iceland called Reykjavíkurdætur. They'll be spitting verses about sexual violence and sexual freedom. All proceeds go to the Eve Appeal, a charity combatting cancer. 

Bush Hall, Shepherd’s Bush Market station, March 12, 7.30pm–1am, £15.

G R R L S: A New Hope

Promising to 'smash the patriarchy, or at least provide a pleasant soundtrack to patriarchy-smashing', G R R L S is back for the first time this year in March. The club night's dedicated to playing female artists from all genres. Expect everything from Taylor Swift to Sleater-Kinney, FKA Twigs to Moldy Peaches.

Tipsy, Dalston Kingsland Station, March 12, 9pm–3am, £3 advance.

Beginners Music Production Workshop For Girls

Ever wanted to have a go at mixing? Are you a woman? Here’s a new free workshop just for you. The beginners’ classes are organised by Shoreditch-based Radar Radio and led by producers like E.M.M.A and hyperdub artist Ikonika. You’ve got until March 11 to sign up by emailing

Radar Radio, Old Street Station, March 19, 2pm–4pm, free.

Girls Rock London Fundraiser

Girls Rock London is a not-for-profit organisation that both runs band camps for girls and mentors women who already work in the music industry. London-based female pop choir LIPS Choir join indie girl band The Tuts on the line-up for this fundraiser, with all profits going towards music summer schools for 11–16 year-olds.

Courtyard Theatre, Old Street Station, March 24, £10.
