Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

A passionate rock affair featuring our very own queens of the six string Kristy Apps, Pandora Karavan, Jackie Marshall, Sarah Stockholm, Georgia Nielsen and Megan Samardan.

Each of these artists will take their turn paying homage to the female guitarists and vocalists who’ve blazed the trail and inspired new generations of artists. It is an all too rare thing to see a girl and guitar taking centre stage but when she does, you’re going to listen.

Joined onstage by a full band, expect stories, signature songs and righteous riffs from the likes of Joan Jett, Melissa Etheridge, Courtney Love, Tracy Chapman, Buffy Sainte Marie, PJ Harvey and more.

Put your fist in the air and brace yourself for an electrifying night of vocals, shredding and renegade women.

“I want every girl to grab a guitar and start screaming.”
— Courtney Love
