Here’s how triple j plans to celebrate IWD
triple j have lifted the lid on its programming for International Women’s Day.
Across all three networks tomorrow – triple j, Double J and triple j Unearthed – its female on-air talent will play music from legendary ladies all day long.
On triple j, you’ll be waking up with Veronica Milsom & Alex Lee on Breakfast, Zan Rowe on Mornings, Gen Fricker at Lunch, from Coda Conduct, Sally Coleman & Erica Mallett on Drive, Sarah McVeigh hosting Hack, Linda Marigliano on Good Nights, Bridget Hustwaite on Home & Hosed. There will also be a special Short.Fast.Loud. with Pagan frontwoman, Nikki Bruman.
triple j’s Hack has crunched the numbers again on the representation of women in the Australian music industry. They’ve explored the gender splits between artists in the charts, on festival line-ups, award nominations, sitting on boards, running indie labels and of course getting paid.
triple j Unearthed is featuring ‘Seven Important New Voices in Australian Music’, including interviews with Boat Show, Glitoris, The Football Club, Le Pie, Miss Blanks, Moaning Lisa and Pagan, sharing stories about how they’re challenging the music industry and initiating change. triple j Unearthed will of course also be bringing you the best independent music made by women from all around the nation, with Unearthed fave Maggie Collins hosting Tops at 5.30pm.
And on Double J, Myf Warhurst will be joined by all female guests including All Our Exes Live in Texas and a spotlight on the Desert Divas project. At 2pm, Karen Leng will be interviewing musician, mentor and label boss Jen Cloher. Sarah Howells will be presenting a WOMAdelaide special edition of Fat Planet, and across the day you will hear song selections from inspiring female artists, including Kathleen Hannah, Mia Dyson, Kasey Chambers, Laura Marling, Holly Throsby, The Clouds and Katy Steele.
Heaps of your favourite artists will be getting in on the action too. Talking about their favourite female artists you’ll hear from Airling, Ali Barter, Amy Shark, Camp Cope, Elliphant, Georgia, Gordi, Hayley Mary from The Jezabels, Jack River, Julia Stone, Kučka, Lady Leshurr, Ngaiire, Sampa The Great and Sløtface.
