Celebrating the talent of wxmen in the music industry, Boudica festival returns for its third year.
Taking place on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th October in Coventry’s Herbert Art Museum and Gallery, Boudica is a selection of specially curated live music over three stages.
Headlining the festival are Tusks, a London based artist with airy soundscapes and atmospheric indie indie electronica that has seen them grab the attention of Lauren Laverne, Annie Mac, MixMag and more. Tusks are followed by Virginia Wing and Los Bitchos, whilst Truemendos, Dorcha, Ghum and Screaming Toenail complete the line up.
Even though this line up is already full to bursting, Boudica will feature local acts Lucy Anne Sale, Nyota Izeidi and Slag Mag issue 2 feature Bryony Williams, along with Mamajay and The Marilyns.
Friday’s instalment is a pre-festival party and sees electro pop sensation Stealing Sheep with their Wow Machine, along with a DJ set from Coventry’s Jerry Dammer.
Boudica Festival’s main ambition is to inspire women both on stage and behind the scenes. However, the collective state: “As well as providing a platform, we want to highlight the opportunities available to women in the music industry other than performing.” This is why Boudica will host a range of workshops throughout the weekend including sound engineering, DJ and coding lessons with no experience necessary.
Boudica Festival takes place on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th October. Tickets are on sale now. Workshops spaces are on a first come, first serve basis.
