Festival Republic have launched a brand new event.

ReBalance Celebrates International Women’s Day invites those wanting a career in music to meet women in the industry, make connections and attend educational talks.

Held at Islington's Union Chapel on Sunday 8th March, it will be followed by a special performance by Nilüfer Yanya, who will appear alongside ReBalance acts Martha Hill and Tamzene.

ReBalance began as a 3-year programme that launched in 2017, which has now expanded into an additional 3 years into 2023, offering 5 day’s studio time to a core female identified band or artist each month in 2018, 2019, and 2020, as well as a slot at a Festival Republic or Live Nation Festival. So far, there has been 300 nominations across 6 rounds, resulting in 19 finalists, and have seen live performances at The Great Escape, Wireless, Latitude, and Reading & Leeds Festivals.

The ReBalance team explains: “We are incredibly proud of what ReBalance has achieved, so it only made sense to take the scheme further by hosting an event on International Women’s Day for those who want to meet the industry. Aimed at newcomers or if you’re just curious, this event is the chance to learn from the brightest stars and pick up some tips. Lack of female representation in music is an industry wide issue, and we want to level it.”

You can check out all the info in the poster below. You can grab tickets here.

Soccer Mommy: "There are fucked up sides of us that are really hard to live with"

Let’s not get all transatlantic about the spelling on Soccer Mommy’s new album - as she steps up a gear, the follow up to 2018’s ‘Clean’ has its own unique palette.

Summer Camp are back, and they've no time for your Valentine's Day nonsense

Elizabeth and Jeremy may "hate" that "awful holiday", but their new album 'Romantic Comedy' seems rather well-timed. We caught up with them to stoke the fires.

Blossoms: "The moment you become comfortable, it’s not right"

It would be easy to see Blossoms as just another indie band, but that would be selling them short. Never pausing for breath, new album ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’ is a revelation.
