triple j are once again bringing girls to the front, announcing their plans for International Women’s Day with a look back at the decade that was.
Sunday, March 8th marks the worldwide recognition of International Women’s Day, and serves as a day that celebrates the milestones, achievements, and constant progress of women around the globe. As always, acclaimed broadcaster triple j use this day as a means to bring girls to the front, and celebrating the music made by female artists.
This year, International Women’s Day takes place mere days before the station hold their Hottest 100 of the Decade countdown, so they’re taking a look at the milestones of the last decade.
Undoubtedly, the 2010s were a massive ten years for female musicians, with the last few months alone seeing Tones And I topping charts around the world with her record-breaking “Dance Monkey”, and Billie Eilish becoming the first female artist to top the Hottest 100.
But it doesn’t stop there though, so triple j, Double J and triple j Unearthed will help celebrate the occasion by playing nothing but music made by women from the 2010s. Likewise, every program on the day will be headed up by female hosts, including Bridget Hustwaite, Caz Tran, Ebony Boadu, Jess Perkins, Karla Ranby, Nat Tencic, Tia Newling, and Zan Rowe.
Meanwhile, Banoffee will join as a guest host on triple j’s Something More, while G Flip will warm everyone up with a special Like a Version performance two days earlier on Friday, March 6th.
Over on Double J, the J Files will focus on PJ Harvey, Classic Albums will take on Laura Marling’s I Speak Because I Can, and Zan Rowe will take listeners through her favourite Take 5s with female artists.
To top it all off, the music heard on triple j throughout the day will be programmed by Music Researcher/Producer Karla Ranby, while Double J will be programmed by Music Director Dorothy Markek, and triple j Unearthed will be programmed by Australian Music Producer Claire Mooney.
It all takes place on Sunday, March 8th, so be sure to head along to triple j for more details, and tune in over the weekend to hear the finest female artists of the last decade rightfully brought to the front.
