HI-TIDE PRESENTS: BABES ALL ROCK
BROOKLYN’S FEMALE-FEATURED MUSIC FEST AT BABY’S ALL RIGHT ON DECEMBER 3RD
“Focusing on all things girl power and music. Need we say more?”
Today, NYLON announces the first Babes All Rock Fest, presented by Brooklyn events promotion company Hi Tide. The festival features a lineup of women-led artists, “a who’s who of indie and underground musicians,” says NYLON, including Combo Chimbita, Prima, A Deer A Horse, Big Quiet, Debbie Downer, Verdigrls and more. Baby’s All Right will be hosting the full-day event on December 3rd, 2017.
Babes All Rock is a music festival designed to highlight the music being created by female-identifying individuals in New York City today. Almost every woman in a band has experienced being the outlier on a bill of all-male bands, and the world of rock music has historically been created and curated by men, for men. This imbalanced precedent in rock music motivated the fest’s creators to produce a day-long that festival celebrates the uniquely rich community of female musicians in NYC.
Female-empowering publications BUST Magazine and NYLON will be sponsoring the event, alongside industry partners Cigar City Management and Tell All Your Friends PR. 50% of the proceeds from the event will be donated to local communities of women in need, specifically the Mount Sinai SAVI program, which aids survivors of sexual assault in NYC. Guitar Center and Suffragette City, also event partners, have graciously donated goods for a raffle. 100% of the raffle’s proceeds will also go to the SAVI program.
Why create a female-featured music festival?
Because every woman playing in a band has experienced being the only non-all-male band on a bill
Because the world of rock music has historically been created and curated by men, for men.
Because NYC has a uniquely rich community of women-identifying musicians, and that’s worth celebrating!
50% of proceeds from the event will be donated to the Mount Sinai SAVI Program, which aids survivors of sexual assault in NYC.
100% of proceeds from raffle will also go to SAVI ~ goods donated by Guitar Center, Suffragette City etc!
