Trackd are thrilled to be a part of ‘Keychange’ – a collaborative European programme led by PRS Foundation which aims to empower women to transform the music industry. The 60 female artists and innovators for the groundbreaking programme were announced today at Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival.
Ten successful participants selected from six European countries join the new international initiative empowering women to transform the music industry. The successful participants will take part in a series of showcases, discussions, collaborations and a programme of creative labs at seven international festivals. Backed by an innovation fund to help test new projects and ideas, Keychange will culminate with a final event in Brussels at the European Parliament in 2019, at which Keychange partners will present a manifesto for change.
Participants include #onTrackd artist Violet Skies (UK) who we showcased at South by Southwest in 2016, along with electronic mainstay Cora Novoa (Spain), rising indie stars Gurr (Germany); in addition to a host of industry professionals including BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Jamz Supernova (UK) plus artist managers Thea Lillepalu (Estonia) and María Rut Reynisdóttir (Iceland), who will have the opportunity to forge new and ambitious collaborations that will push the future development of the music industry and position women at the forefront of innovation.
