Rock 4 Choice was originally a series of benefit concerts held over the ten-year period between 1991 to 2001 in the United States, including notable artists such as Joan Jett, Soundgarden and Nirvana. Rock 4 Choice Ireland will continue this fantastic legacy, building  a platform for musicians to voice their support for women’s rights and literally scream their lungs out to ‘Repeal the 8th!’.
 
All proceeds from this event will go to the Abortion Rights Campaign, which is entirely run by volunteers.
 
The 1st edition of R4C presents a fantastic lineup consisting of female fronted bands as well as solo artists across rock, punk, metal – even ambient! – to appeal to all tastes. With this theme we wish to reinforce the message that women should be trusted to choose for themselves, and have full autonomy over their bodies. We also want to showcase the immense talent we have here in Ireland, as rock and metal scenes are still very male-dominated. Joining forces with us are some fantastic guests from Northern Ireland, including Derry based Making Monsters who are headlining the event.
