Who Run The World returns February 2019

4 Dec

In collaboration with WAM, Perth Festival are taking steps to address gender inequality in music with Who Run The World, a program that empowers young female-identifying musicians to make the playing field just a little more even.

Who Run the World is about learning the essentials for kicking goals in the music industry. From creative process to the basics of sound, stage presence to laying the foundations for a viable music business this is an opportunity to get the low down from those who have paved the way. An incredible bunch of local musicians and Chevron Gardens performers will facilitate masterclasses and discussions across music, management, performance and production.

  • Carla Geneve
  • Elise Reitze and Rosie Taylor (Feels)
  • Em Burrows (Web Rumors)
  • Phoebe Gunson (Your Girl Pho)
