About Girls* Rock! Ireland

Girls Rock Camp Ireland wants to empower women* and girls* to discover their musical and artistic possibilities. ✓ Form Bands ✓ Write Songs ✓ Rock Out ✓

Not just in the music industry in Ireland, but in many different musical contexts women* and girls* are often assigned stereotypical roles of singer, fan or groupie and their presence is questioned.

We want to change that! We want to empower women* and girls* to discover their musical and artistic possibilities through learning instruments, writing songs, forming bands and performing. We want to demonstrate that every genre of music and every technical job and creative endeavor can be available to any girl* or women* that wants to explore it. We want to destroy the traditions and eradicate the myths that prevent women* and girls* from participating in the (until now) male dominated Irish and international music scene.

History: The first Girls Rock Camp was set up in Portland, Oregon, U.S. in 2001. Now there are over 40 rock camps in the U.S., aswell as Popkollo in Sweden, Ruby Tuesday in Berlin, Austria, Paris. Every summer, girls* participate in camps where they learn instruments, write songs, form bands, perform and rock out!
