Female Talent Rules at Athena Music Festival

This Friday, Curtin University hosts Australia’s largest Female-led music festival on campus. Athena has come about as a result of collaboration between the University’s Student Guild Women’s Department, the Activities Vice President and others.

The line-up features a mix of well-established female artists such as Abbe May, Asta and Tired Lion alongside brand new talent.

$1 from every ticket purchase will go to the Patricia Giles centre, which offers crisis accommodation and counselling for women and children affected by domestic violence.

Cassandra from Curtin University’s Student Guild spoke to Tanya on Breakfast about this Australian first.
