New Additions to the Lineup and Conference Programme

Only a few weeks to go until the first edition of We Make Waves, and we’re excited to announce a new round of additions to our programme. We’ve added legendary artist, founder of Queercore and punk icon Vaginal Davis, ethereal soundscaper Julianna Barwick, a solo set from psych saz queen Derya Yildirim, some synth-heavy Franco-pop from Cléa Vincent, and more!

In addition, we’re proud to confirm a range of new talks, workshops and roundtables featuring, among others, talks from Ruth Daniel (GRRRL/In Place of War), Frances Morgan (deputy editor, The Wire), Jessica Sligter, and Hengameh Yaghoobifarah leading a discussion on politics in the German music industry, a Theremin workshop by Dorit Chrysler, The Year In Sexism according to Salt+Sass, Britta Helm interviewing Meredith Graves on “The Cost of DIY”, a panel featuring key media players on the role of the media in changing the status quo of the music industry, and a special event featuring a selection of diversity-focused collectives such as Yo Sissy!, New World Dysorder, Heroines of Sound, female:pressure, and others that we’re calling “Build Your Own Tribe”.
