Insomniac’s Countdown New Year’s Invasion Music Festival provided a mesmerizing New Year’s celebration, immersing us in a sensory feast of lights, visuals, art, food, and, of course, the heartbeat of the event – the music. A diverse lineup, including BEC, Mary Droppinz, Lizzy Jane, and Vampa, alongside classics like Alison Wonderland and Sofi Tucker, united the crowd in an unforgettable experience.
Acknowledging the unique journey of female artists, we delved into the statistics, discovering that only 27% of festival acts are women. Intrigued by their path to success, we had the privilege of sitting down with these artists for empowering insights. BEC encouraged authenticity, daring, and confidence, emphasizing the importance of staying true to oneself.
Vampa dismissed gender concerns, urging artists to focus on their art’s communication, emphasizing that talent knows no limitations. Mary Droppinz expressed the honor of representing women, highlighting the collective effort to make space for more female acts.
Lizzy Jane shared the importance of finding authenticity, navigating the journey at a deliberate pace, and seizing unexpected opportunities. These women exemplify that possibilities are limitless in the electronic music scene, inspiring us to pursue happiness and goals. In a universe abundant with opportunities, each of us can attain what brings joy.
Looking ahead to 2024, BEC revealed plans for a new label and exciting collaborations. Vampa promised new music releases, feature vocals, and a Bad Bodies tour in the spring. Mary Droppinz expressed enthusiasm for sharing elemental fun through new music and hosting her own parties. Lizzy Jane teased upcoming releases, including the heartbreak VIP and an 8-track EP defining the next chapter.
