Recent years have seen increasing awareness of the underrepresentation of women and non binary people in the music industry, and in festival line-ups in particular. Boudica Festival aims to provide an antidote to this underrepresentation through its exclusively non-male lineup.

This year’s roster includes women and non-binary artists from a variety of genres, who will be spread across 3 music stages. Acts announced so far include the post-punk and grunge-inspired GHUM, underground rapper TrueMendous, and alt-pop artist Tusks (header image).

If that isn’t exciting enough, there will also be DJ and music coding workshops, plus arts and crafts stalls on the day.

The festival venue, The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, is located in Coventry’s City Centre, and is wheelchair-accessible.
