The Amplify Her Purple Carpet TourAmplify Her is on tour starting November 2017, featuring film screenings, festivals, music shows, talks and workshops. Learn about events in your city and get tickets early! Events will sell out fast.
Blondtron is an outspoken, openly sexual music producer who crafted her latest track, ‘Set Your Pussy Free’ as an anthem for empowering women. Yet as she transitions into an entrepreneur launching her own tech company, her raunchy antics prevent her from being taken seriously.
AppleCat is a sharp-witted DJ with heart, struggling to make ends meet – raising her young daughter by day and occasionally gigging as an online ‘camgirl’ at night. Her gift lies in creating soundscapes that allow others to release their sexual shame, yet to truly succeed, she must first forgive herself.
On the heels of beating a mysterious decade-long illness, Lux Moderna channels her healing mantras into her music, creating spaces of shamanic transformation on the dance floor. Yet her biggest challenge awaits her: stepping out from behind the decks and performing as a center-stage priestess.
Amplify HER explores these rising stars and more as they come-of-age amidst the emerging cultural renaissance of the feminine.
