Celebrating Women Composers Across 5 Genres

The Women in Music Festival is a celebration of women composing for Indigenous, Games, Classical, Film and Jazz music and was founded to address the fact that less than 5% of music performed on the concert platform is of music written by women. 

The Women in Music Festival takes place in one of Melbourne's most unique venues, RMIT University's Storey Hall, the home of Melbourne's Suffragettes at the time they were granted the vote.  Storey Hall is still, today, adorned with Suffragette colours: green, white and violet.

Planning for the 2020 Festival - Friday 6th, Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th March - is well underway!  Save the dates! 




We are delighted to announce that the Emerging Composer Competition is now open for submissions, and that this year we will have not one but five categories.

To ensure the 2020 festival takes place, we are on a mission to raise some much needed funds and the countdown is on!


Our participating artists have spent years honing their craft and we want to honour them accordingly by paying them for their contributions to the festival. 


That’s why we are asking you to support our Pozible campaign in any way you can. Whether it be by purchasing pre-sale tickets at heavily reduced prices, commissioning a composition or just sharing our campaign page with your friends, every little bit helps.


So, click here to head over to our campaign page where you can check out all the juicy rewards on offer!


From the team at the WiMF… we thank you for your support.


With deep thanks to our venue partner RMIT University, corporate sponsors KAWAI and BIG ANT STUDIOS,  2020 performance partner Rubiks Collective and media partner 3MBS.
