GIRLSCHOOL is a Los Angeles-based women-led music festival, online platform, and collective that celebrates and connects women artists, leaders, and voices. Founded by Anna Bulbrook (Airborne Toxic Event/Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros/The Bulls) in response to how few women she saw onstage in the alternative rock world, GIRLSCHOOL has grown into a vibrant volunteer community of women in music who connect to create an empowering community for one another while supporting women and girls. A portion of the proceeds from every ticketed GIRLSCHOOL event benefits a girl-positive 501c3 organization.
Rock’n’Roll Camp for Girls LA is a social justice organization that uses loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.
From today through the festival, Lyft will donate $10 to Rock’N’Roll Camp for Girls LA for every new user who takes their first ride using code GIRLSROCK.
Sponsors include: Nasty Gal, KROQ Locals Only, Bedrock.LA, Lyft, Sid The Cat presents, and Fender Guitars.
