International Women’s Day Takeover

1BTN are delighted to announce our all-day female and non binary takeover for International Women’s Day 2022 (IWD22) on Tuesday 8 March

Running for 24 hours from midnight on Tuesday 8 March, the 1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover has become a key fixture in the station’s calendar since its debut in 2018. This year’s takeover will feature 25 of the station’s female and non binary presenters across the 24 hours of programming, playing female focused music spanning the genres, to enlighten your ears and feed your soul! 1BTN will also be raising money for Sussex based domestic abuse charity RISE, helping them to receive match funding from The Big Give.

On Tuesday 8 March, the 1BTN airwaves will be filled with a wide range of genres as the station celebrates women’s achievements in music, highlighting the songwriters, producers, writers, performers, remixers, artists and musicians who have enhanced their lives. Expect Afro beat, breaks, dancehall, disco, dub, electro, funk, grime, hip hop, house, indie, jazz, jungle, Latino, new wave, psych, punk, pop, R’n’B, reggae, rock, ska, soul, synth, and techno.

Taking part in IWD22 (in show order) are Nikki Lucas, Sophie Lloyd, DJ Emma, Sarah Monument, Johanna Burnheart, Katie Barber, Ellie, I Am Fya, Unhooked Generation with The Record Caddy, Feel Up with Kerry Jean Lister, Atlantic Waves Other Forms, INTER-MISSION with Clara Suess, Anna Lux, Love Is The Message with Hannah Sherlock, Jayne Winstanley, Wildblood & Queenie, Chicha Morada, Unsounded Deeps Wirh Jamie Natalie, Underlying Oddities with Martha Cleary, Riddims With DJ Priya, The Playground With Tor & Liz, Our House with Sophie Paul.

The IWD22 campaign theme #BreaktheBias will be at the heart of the day. The campaign asks everyone to cross their arms in solidarity to call out gender bias, discrimination, and stereotyping. Together, we can forge women’s equality.

This year, 1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover will be fundraising for RISE. RISE is a Sussex based domestic violence and abuse charity that has worked for since 1994 to end all forms of violence and abuse against women, their families and those identifying as LGBTQ+. RISE stands for Refuge, Information, Support and Education; their strategic mission is freedom from abuse and violence.

1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover 2022 will be helping RISE to receive match funding from The Big Give, provided by the DCMS Tampon Tax fund. If RISE reaches its fundraising goal of £25,000 between 8-15 March, donations will be matched by The Big Give Women and Girls Match Fund, and RISE will receive £50,000 towards their vital services.
