She's In Control line up announced for Freight Island
She's In Control aims to put artists who are women and people of marginalised genders at the front and centre of this one-day shindig, which is part of the Better Sundays Summer festivals series at Freight Island.
The line-up of amazing local, established, and emerging talent is part of the ongoing revolution to address years of gender imbalance behind the DJ turntables.
Taking part in the She’s In Control MainRoom livestream are rising stars; Jade Li, Edie, Danielle Moore from band Crazy P and Homoelectric resident, Gina Breeze.
The She’s In Control and MainRoom collaboration will also raise awareness and funds for local organisation 'Brighter Sound' whose aim is to ‘develop the music creators, leaders and industry professionals of the future, with a particular focus on supporting those who are historically and currently underrepresented.’
StreamGM’s MainRoom series will be presented by Rebecca Swarray, who is the founder and curator of Manchester based events and arts collective, RebeccaNeverBecky and co-founder of queer DJ Collective, Queer Latifah.
She is also known as DJ Mix-Stress, a respected and firm favourite on the Manchester clubbing scene and beyond, with her soulful and uplifting sets.
Other episodes lined up for MainRoom include collaborations with: La Discotheque, Not Bad For A Girl, Mixing Mates, Black Gold Arts and Band on the Wall.
Co-founder of StreamGM Laura Graham said: “Greater Manchester’s clubbing scene is historic, and renowned as THE destination city for a night out.
“This is partly due to the region’s vast clubbing tapestry, amazing super clubs, and major venues across the city, but also because Greater Manchester has always maintained a thriving, progressive and influential, grassroots clubbing scene, and it’s this scene we want to identify and explore.
“MainRoom will provide visibility for Manchester’s local clubbing culture, with a strong emphasis on inclusion, accessibility, empowerment, and most of all – fun times - for marginalised groups.
“We will collaborate directly with promoters and take amazing local talent and new clubbing concepts beyond the venue walls with our online audiences.
“MainRoom will also give viewers a sense of the latest music, dance and fashion trends, straight from the club vibes and dancefloors.
“People all over the world will be able to use MainRoom to dip into Manchester's epic clubbing scene, use our streams as soundtracks to house parties, or watch them to research future nights out in the city.
“During United We Stream, our team were overwhelmed by messages from people for whom live streaming had given them access to events they would never normally be able to attend for myriad reasons, from disability and caring responsibilities to location or cost. MainRoom will open Mancunian clubbing to EVERYONE.
“Each episode will also function as a growing archive to illustrate Manchester’s diverse clubbing scene.”
