The Hillside Festival is a 36-year-old grassroots organization that showcases indie, Indigenous, and world music and celebrates creativity in every aspect of its work. We promote altruism, equality & environmental leadership.

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, less than 20% of the songs circulating out there are written by women, and only 5 percent of music producers are female—a gender imbalance that our Girls & Guitars program seeks to redress through three channels for female-identified artists:

  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.
