PANDORAFEST 2016 will be Scotland's 1st music festival that supports women musicians and celebrates female music making across all genres.
PANDORAFEST 2016 will be set within the beautiful location of DUNCARRON, a fortified Medieval Village based on an 11th Century motte and bailey, situated beside the Carron Valley Reservoir.
In 2015, the major festivals displayed a massive gender imbalance... Of the 87 acts that were announced, 78 were all male, 3 were female and 6 were mixed groups. That, was an 89.6% all male line up! *

As far as Scotland is concerned - this is NOT OKAY!
Which is why submissions for this festival will ONLY be open to female bands, singers and musicians or, female fronted bands where there is a good mix of the genders.
PANDORAFEST 2016 is a strong positive step in the right direction for a Scotland that supports women musicians and celebrates female music making across all genres.
