The Hillside Festival is a 33-year-old grassroots organization that showcases indie and world music and celebrates creativity in every aspect of its work. Through showcases, workshops, and courses, we also promote altruism, equality, environmentalism and peacemaking. The Girls & Guitars project is designed to foster equality in the music industry through artistic expression and community engagement by offering in-the-schools music seminars, festival stage appearances, and songwriting courses.

Encourage a girl. Make her believe.

About 70% of the music industry’s performers, executives, critics, agents and managers are male—a gender imbalance that our Girls & Guitars program seeks to redress through three channels:

  1. in-the-schools workshops;
  2. on-stage performances; and
  3. songwriting workshops.

Help create a groundswell that sounds different, feels different, and tells a different story.
