A team of leading electronic music talent will head up a masterclass aiming to boost the careers of up and coming female DJs and producers.

Fifteen budding DJs and producers will be sleected by an industry panel to attend the two day event on December 8 and 9 which will feature talks, workshops and networking opportunities with eight leading musicians from Ireland and beyond.

It's part of Smirnoff's Equalizing Music pledge, a commitment to double the number of female, LGBTQ and non-binary headliners at electronic music festivals by 2020.

It's building on Move the Needle which launched earlier this year.

So far, UMFANG (Discwoman / Technicolour) and ELLLL (Gash Collective) have been announced as keynote speakers at Smirnoff Equalizing Music Dublin and will headline an Equalizing Music showcase gig at Wah Wah Club on Saturday, 9 December.

Other tutors and speakers will be announced over the coming weeks and will give talks and workshops on a range of topics from production skills, to mastering the creative process and getting ahead in the industry.

To be in with a chance of being selected you can apply via a questionnaire HERE about your music experience and submit a piece of original work like a mix or a track you have produced.  The closing date is Monday November 6 and the 15 selected will be notified by Friday November 17.
