WE MAKE WAVES

Introducing We Make Waves, a new Berlin-based festival and conference made for women, trans and non-binary people poised to disrupt the music industry. This November, we will bring together a group of renegade performers, artists, and activists from Berlin and beyond in order to share transformational ideas, experiences, and motivation for future projects and collaborations. For our inaugural year, we are proud to present live performances by NYC’s underground rap diva Dai Burger, Oakland’s trans poptronic princess AH MER AH SU, Zimbabwean emcee A.W.A. (African Women Arise) Awa Khiwe , and feminist punk icon Meredith Graves (Perfect Pussy) +++ more to be announced. An evening programme with DJs and live electronic performances will lead us into the night.
