Across the WOW weekend, enjoy live music from a variety of incredible musicians as part of our WOW Sounds programme - crossing continents, genres and drumsticks!
Founded in 2020, WOW Sounds is WOW’s dedicated music programme, platforming revolutionary women, girls and non-binary musicians who are using their music as a form of activism to create change in their local communities. Over the past two years we’ve worked with more than 100 amazing artists from 27 countries.
At this year’s festival you can catch loads of WOW Sounds performances, both as part of ticketed events and free gigs, including WOW London 2022’s Artist-in-Residence Miss Baby Sol (supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund). Plus WOW’s international artists in residence Voice of Baceprot (VOB) will be joining digitally - watch out for their brand new music video (Not) Public Property, written especially for WOW (with thanks to support from British Council Indonesia).
