Girls Rock Dublin (GRD)
Founded in 2016, Girls Rock Dublin is the first girls rock camp organisation in Ireland. We run camps and events aimed at empowering girls and women* to discover their musical and artistic possibilities: form bands, write songs, rock out!
GRD are part of a movement of rock camps (Girls Rock Camp) that take place all over the world, united by the desire to achieve gender equality in the music industry.
We ran our first camp for 18-24 y.o. girls* in June 2017 and are planning one for 12-17 y.o. for next summer. Please visit our “The Camp” section for more details about it.
2017 saw us busy with a number of activities including an interactive music workshop at the F festival, a promotional stall at Forbidden Fruit Festival ran in collaboration with Hotpress, a fundraiser gig starring Æ MAK, Susie-Blue, Alien She and Extravision, a music bingo night, a choaching exchange session with Girls Rock School NI in Belfast as part of Women’s Work Festival where we also featured a women in music related panel discussion.

* Girls & women: Our camps are run by and for people who self-identify as women (trans and cis) or gender non-binary.
