All systems are go as the annual, all-female contemporary music festival, Space Girls, today announces a stellar lineup for its Queensland Satellite Party on Friday, 13 September.
Lifting off in T-Minus 29 Days : 7 hours : 15 minutes, the 2019 Space Girls event will be MC’d by Double J’s Sarah Howells and features indie rock guitar slinger, Jaguar Jonze;award-winning electro-pop artists, Ella Fence and DOOLIE; breakthrough Indigenous DJ , Dameeeela; Aus-Fijian singer songwriter Andrea Kirwin; looping pop harpist, ELSKA; and folk-pop sibling act, The Dennis Sisters.
The brainchild of Australian fashion designer, Cindy Vogels (who most notably dressed Lady Gaga), Space Girls was born from years of working in the music industry with “incredibly talented women, who all too often aren’t given enough space in festival billing and building.”
“We’ve seen awesome conversation and initiatives addressing the underrepresentation of women recently and are starting to see some real change. But there is still much work to be done,” said Ms Vogels from her Gympie-based studio.
“The line up we’ve programmed is a celebration of women in music from an exciting range of genres with diverse backgrounds too.”
Blasting onto the National music industry radar last year, headliner Jaguar Jonze said, “I am constantly inspired by powerhouse females around me – behind the scenes in the industry, in art, in music and in the home, so I feel honoured to be headlining Space Girls. The band and I can’t wait to be amongst an amazing lineup of talented creatives.”
Co-founder and accomplished young film maker Jazmyn Bowman, said the Space Girls Satellite Party is a launchpad to building a sustainable, full scale outdoor festival that will become “a must-see on the Australian festival calendar.”
“You can’t be what you can’t see, and we are so excited to do our part in transforming the conversation into one galactic realisation that women have a well-earned space in the spotlight!”
“It’s time to take up more space, girls.”
The Space Girls Festival: Satellite Party is an all-ages event open to all for a celebration of 100% women-led production, programming and performance, 13 September, 4-11pm at Gympie Civic Centre.
