Event description

Description

DAREFest was set up by Lou Mclean and Ashley Stein, two musicians who met at Girl’s Rock School Edinburgh. Inspired by the phenomenal talent coming out of their local music scene but still unimpressed with the industries attitude towards women, they decided to start a one day festival designed to empower all women to take on the Scottish music scene. This event will not just be focused on performing, but on organising and building up resilience and skills for music performance & feminist activism.
