Let’s fight for equality in the music industry with FEMME

Hot on Top has their first all-female line-up!

On Saturday, 12 August 2017 the Grand Africa Cafe and Beach will be overtaken by Hot on Top presents FEMME; the musical event that you’ve been waiting for. FEMME boasts an all female DJ line-up, lower ticket prices for women and the express purpose of drawing attention to the gender inequalities in the music industry.

Hot on Top is a local organisation that specialises in throwing the some of the best parties you’ve ever been to, right across the country. Previously, they have hosted Sunsets, Hot Day Out and even a Great Gatsby themed bash. Most of their events take place in Joburg, but they’ve decided to take FEMME on an SA tour so we can join the party too.

The gender inequalities that most women experience in the music industry (and in life generally) are too often ignored. Well, FEMME wants to draw attention to that inequality and wants to give local female DJs the platform to wow the audience, like we all know they can. If you can’t think of any local DJs that are women, it’s probably because you’ve never seen any perform. That changes this August!

All of the live sets will be streamed online so you can enjoy the music even if you can’t make the event.

There is also a charity component to FEMME, and the beneficiary is Lalela Art is Power. Lalela provides a safe space for at-risk youths to pursue their artistic aspirations. The charity keeps children off the streets, encourages goal setting and allows children from low-income areas to aspire to make their dreams a reality. Their programmes start with children as young as six and carry on even past the kids high school graduation. You can support this amazing charity by adding a donation when you purchase your tickets to FEMME. All proceeds will go towards hosting a women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship programme in Johannesburg.
