For a long while, people have been raising issue with the lack of gender diversity in the music festival scene. Women often occupy tiny stages and small percentages of festival lineups. Up-and-coming female and LGBTIQ musicians struggle to achieve non-gendered recognition. But finally, there's a local collective taking action. Local record label Sad Grrrls Club launched their first Sydney showcase last year, and now they're doing it again at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville on Saturday, October 8 — and they've pulled together a stellar non-male lineup.

The event is designed to be a safe space, free from the kind of harassment that can make festivals so draining for those that don't identify as males. The event motto is: "Be good to each other and have fun". Right on. Check out the full lineup below.
