    Annie Nightingale For Oh Yeah |


    DJ pioneer Annie Nightingale will celebrate 50 years of broadcasting with an exclusive appearance and interview at the Oh Yeah Music Centre, followed by a dance floor filling DJ set of the tracks that inspire her.
     
    The event on March 4th will kick off the inaugural Women’s Work Festival, which runs until Tuesday 8th March, incorporating International Women’s Day.
     
    Women’s Work will celebrate great female talent with a series of gigs and showcase events across the five days. It will also provide practical advice, support and spark conversations and debate on the issues surrounding women in music and the wider creative sector.
     
    Women’s Work Festival organiser, Charlotte Dryden said:
    “We want to celebrate great female talent, but also to use the Festival as an opportunity to really talk about and explore a variety of issues facing women in music and other artistic genres.
     
    For example, why according to PRSF findings only 14% of registered songwriters are women, or why a Tweet on marginalisation from music journalist Jessica Hopper (Pitchfork, Rolling Stone) sparked a worldwide debate. There’s been a lot of coverage and opinion in the media of late and networks and campaigns are forging on a global level. The team at Women’s Work felt that it was a good time to be part of the debate and to do something positive to promote and celebrate our own community of female creatives.
     
    “We asked Annie Nightingale to launch the event because she is quite simply a legend. She broke through the no-women DJs ban at Radio 1 in 1970 to become the first female DJ on the BBC and has remained a broadcaster there ever since. Annie specialises in championing new and underground music and is credited with helping to break acts like Daft Punk and London Grammar. She continues to DJ around the world and in 2014 Annie was presented with the Pioneer in Music Award by Music Week / A.I.M. at the Women In Music Awards. She led the movement to encourage other women to become DJs and broadcasters and we are delighted that such an inspiration is helping us launch this celebration of women in music.”
     
    Annie will do an exclusive live interview followed by a DJ set on Friday 4th March at Oh Yeah Music Centre. 

    The night will also include guest local DJs on the bill and tickets for the event can be purchased through Eventbrite.
     
    The full festival programme will be launched in the coming weeks with up to date information soon available here.

    Jessica Hopper, Keynote - Women’s Work |

    Music critic and feminist writer Jessica Hopper has been announced as keynote speaker at the upcoming Women’s Work festival, in Belfast, on Sunday, March 6th.


    Jessica Hopper is one of today’s most important voices in music journalism. Currently editorial director for Music at MTV, she was previously Sr. Editor at Pitchfork and the Music Editor at Rookie. Her latest book, The First Collection of Criticism By A Living Female Rock Critic, anthologizes the last 15 years of her work.


    Hopper’s work has been described as influential by the New York Times and has earned her a reputation as a firebrand, a keen observer and fearless critic not just of music but the culture around it. Her keynote in 2015 at BigSound Festival in Australia has been widely praised. “Somewhere between Beatle-mania and Beiber-mania, we’ve lost sight of the capacity young women have to anticipate, sustain and add cultural value to the experience of music,” Hopper said. “We need everybody to show up for women.”


    Hopper’s Belfast talk will focus on the international conversation around inclusivity in the music industry, what is changing and what that means for everyone involved, as how accessibility and an equal playing field for women is the path to success . The keynote will take place at 3pm and is set to be inspiring and encouraging for any music fan.


    The afternoon will also include a panel with award winning music blogger Nialler9, Jenny Wren (festival booker at Body & Soul) and Tanya Sweeny (Irish Times). Later that day the subject of women in live sound and studio engineering will be up for discussion with Julie McLarnon from Analogue Catalogue studio and Una Monaghan. More speakers are to be announced for both sessions.


    The day will also feature workshops, crafts, fashion and a live showcase from Belfast music collective Go Girl and To Be Beautiful.
