The registration on the Stageit.com platform is free and people can register via email or Facebook.
The Online Female Fest was born on April 2020, during the major lockdown that saw around 5 billion people in isolation. This translated into loss of jobs, loved ones and freedom to attend any type of live events. A year later, this crisis has impacted musicians, crew, live shows and live venues worldwide. Female artists and personnel have been impacted even more as a result of an underlying situation. In fact, a research conducted in 2017 showed that only 16.8% of all active artists are women, in addition to having a lower income compared to their male counterpart.
In this situation, it is even more important to give voice to female artists, while continuing the legacy of Online Female Fest of bringing joy and hope into the homes of potentially billions of people thanks to the healing power of music.
Stay tuned for more updates!
