Jesswar Headlines GRRRLS to the North Regional Queensland Tour

THE Grrrls are coming to North Queensland! Headlined by hip-hop/rapper Jesswar, the Grrrls to the North tour will come to Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns 23 - 26 June.


Banded together as a result of QMusic’s Women in Music mentorship program, the all female-identifying tour showcases a remarkable mix of talent curated from each region to support Jesswar, including Dizzy Doolan, Maddi & The Hoopers, Colie, Denvah, Bella Mackenzie, Monica Adair, Matilda Duncan, Kayla Gagai and Bellani. 

“Spending a lot of time in regional areas growing up I think it’s hard for young people to feel connected to what goes on in the cities – or feel like there’s no opportunities creatively,” Jesswar said, whose trailblazing beats and spitfire vocals won her the 2021 Queensland Music Awards Hip-Hop | Rap Award, the first female to do so in the Awards history.

“I wanna empower the young black and brown creative circles up North, let them know there’s space for you to exist and do what you love.”

QMentorship is an important initiative under QMusic's Women in Music program and supports early-career industry professionals who are pursuing a career within the music industry, or who want to explore other skills for gaining employment.

“Programs like QMentorship and the GRRRLS to the North Tour are more important now than ever, as the music industry fights to find its feet in a COVID-19 world,” Melania Jack said, the Cairns based Project Management Mentor. 

“People are so ready to get back out, have some fun and enjoy their local music scene.”

Each stop on The Grrrls to the North tour is set to be an energetic and eclectic experience, as well as a great opportunity for regional fans to catch Jesswar and support their local scene by seeing the local acts supporting her.
