Speaking Up For A Gender Balanced Music Industry

Keychange initiative took another landmark step towards achieving its goal of encouraging a gender balanced music industry worldwide when meeting last Tuesday in Brussels. The seven Keychange founders, among them the Reeperbahn Festival, presented a manifesto for change at the European Parliament with the aim of increasing and sustaining representation of women in the music industry.

The European initiative Keychange, founded by the British PRS Foundation and launched at the Reeperbahn Festival in 2017, has become a groundbreaking and international movement within a year, to which more than 140 international festivals have now joined. 

Keychange is led by PRS Foundation, supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, in partnership with Musikcentrum Sweden, Reeperbahn Festival, Iceland Airwaves, BIME, Tallinn Music Week, Way Out West, Liverpool Sound City and Mutek. Learn more about Keychange here.
