The Women's Day 24 Mix will kick off in two parts via BandsinTown's official Twitch channel on March 8 (Monday) at 8 p.m. PHT/SGT and via Kitsuné Musique’s Soundclound channel on March 9 (Tuesday) at 8 p.m. PHT/SGT.
A shesaid.so x Kitsuné Women's Day Fund has also been established to provide hardship payments of up to €250 (approx. PHP 14,700) each to freelancers, contractors, and artists in the independent music scene who were severely affected due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"shesaid.so is proud to partner with Kitsuné Musique to celebrate International Women's Day with what we both know best: music," Andreea Magdalina, Founder of shesaid.so. says in a statement. "What's special about our collaboration in 2021 is how diverse and global our guest artists are, in true reflection of both our communities.
"With the pandemic disproportionately affecting women and gender minorities in our business, we hope that the funds we raise with our partnership will provide much needed support to the shesaid.so community worldwide," she adds.
