Organised out of anger and disappointment at the continued lack of female acts on festival lineups, No Man's Land is set to put the hottest non-male artists in the spotlight.
Hitting up Manchester's YES on Saturday 14th August 2021, are London punks Qlowski, Glaswegian riot grrrl gang Brat Coven, plus trio bigfatbig, chill-pop singer Jess Fitz, Manchester grunge outfit The Wine Fund, and Leeds singer-songwriter Laeeqa.
Drag queen Ash Kenazi, drummer of Happyness, is hosting the one-dayer.
The organisers have also joined forces with Safe Gigs For Women, which aims to create a safer environment for female gig-goers, with money made from ticket sales going directly to the organisation.
The team behind the event have said: “No Man’s Land was born from anger about the lack of gender diversity on festival lineups, we’re really excited to be a force for change. Partnering with Safe Gigs For Women felt like an obvious choice to make, their work resonates within us all. With a full women/non-binary lineup, No Man’s Land is here for chaos.”
More acts will be confirmed in due course.
Limited early bird tickets (£12.50 plus fees) go on sale on Friday 30th April via SeeTickets.
