Preview: Boudica Festival 2019

Coventry’s Boudica Festival is back and it is bigger than ever!

The festival, which aims to celebrate the talent of womxn in the music industry, is being held this year at The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum. With three stages of live music as well as workshops being ran throughout the day on October 19th, it promises to be a brilliant Saturday.

So far, six artists have been announced and each promise to bring something different to the festival.

Tusks

Singer/songwriter Emily Underhill overcame the obstacle of suffering a serious elbow break in January last year. She feared she would never be able to play the instruments she loves again but thankfully after surgery she is able to and she has released her album, “Avalanche”. An indie electronica record that is full of uplifting lyrics and sheer beauty.

GHUM

This post-punk grunge band from London were brought together by a mutual love of that genre of music. Each member has experience of playing music around the world individually but they’ve also built a good reputation as band playing dates across the UK and Europe.

TrueMendous

An artist who uses a variety of genres from Hip Hop to RnB to portray her stories. Her wordplay and poetry are second to none which has been rewarded with festival slots and work with both BBC R1Xtra and BBC Three. She has toured around the world supporting a wide range of artists.

LIINES

A post-punk trio from Manchester who kicked off their 2019 as main support for the brilliant Sleaford Mods on their 32-date-long UK tour. They’ve also played headline gigs and were finalists at the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition. This summer they’ve played numerous festivals and last year they released their debut album “Stop-Start”.

Dorcha

A genre fluid quintet band full of synths, strings, guitars, electronics and heavy beats. They are incredibly dynamic and obsess over sending listeners on a journey through their psychedelic experimental song-writing. Last year they embarked on their first UK tour supported by PRSF Women Make Music.

Los Bitchos

They started off as a recording project after listening to a lot of Peruvian instrumental Cumbia from the 60s and 70s. Their sound has been described as The Shadows on a Tequila-fueled field trip to South America. Next year they are heading off on tour and recording an EP.
