Välkommen till EQLovesFestival 2019 - inspirationseventet för MUSIKPRODUKTION och JÄMSTÄLLDHET.


Den 20-21 september anordnar vi, den idéella föreningen EQLovesMusic, vår årliga EQLovesFestival. Vi hoppas att alla kreatörer, låtskrivare, producenter, musiker och MUSIKälskare som tycker att jämställdhet behöver flyttas upp på agendan ska komma och bidra och inspireras dessa två dagar. Män, kvinnor, ickebinära, transpersoner, alla är välkomna.


Årets festival börjar fredagen den 20 September i Brewhouse Arena och har fokus på grymma förebilder och systerorganisationer men också #metoo och hur den rörelsen har påverkat och påverkar jämställdhetsarbetet inom musik och mer specifikt inom musikproduktionsområdet. Vi är även i år glada att meddela att Statement tour kommer till stan på kvällen den 21:e september, efter vår festival, så ni hinner med att vara med på båda ställen.


Festivalen bjuder på scenframträdanden från spännande musikkreatörer, vi får lyssna till inspirerande förebilder och reflektera över viktiga ämnen som ger oss verktyg att fortsätta bygga en mer jämställd musikbransch, för alla.

Vi kommer även att visa, exklusivt för festivaldeltagare, utvalda klipp från vårt event i New York där förebilder därifrån delar sina erfarenheter.

Welcome to EQLovesFestival 2019 - the inspiration event for MUSIC PRODUCTION and EQUALITY.



On September 20-21, we organize, the non profit organization EQLovesMusic, our annual EQLovesFestival. We hope that all creators, songwriters, producers, musicians and music lovers who think that equality needs to be moved up on the agenda will come and contribute and be inspired these two days.


This year's festival focuses on cruel role models and sister organizations, but also #metoo and how that movement has influenced and influenced the work on gender equality in music and more specifically in the music production area. We are also pleased to announce this year that the Statement tour will come to town the evening of September 21, after our festival, so you will have time to attend both places.



The festival offers stage performances from exciting music creators, we get to listen to inspiring role models and reflect on important topics that give us the tools to continue to build a more equal music industry, for everyone.

We will also show, exclusively for festival attendees, selected clips from our event in New York where role models from there share their experiences.

EQLovesFestival is a Swedish initiative which aims to highlight the female role models within music production specifically – where women are severely underrepresented in the music industry. Female producers have been left unheard of ever since the beginning of the history of music recording and production, by systematically dismissing or not giving them the credit they deserve. 95% of producers in the music industry who are highlighted and represented are male.


This year we started the festival with a event in Consulate General in New York where we gathered role models and created networking. Read more about it here. 


Every year EQLovesMusic also creates a musical project with anthems for the festival, which this year was released 30th of August. This is a compilation of different productions of the same song.

According to Women’s Audio Mission we estimate that only 5% of music producers are women. At the Swedish Grammies only 4 women have been awarded Producer of the Year since the beginning whereas 49 men won the title. Male songwriters represent 70% of the Swedish Melodifestivalen song contest and the number of female producers is still very low. According to Stims only 20% of all copyright owners are women out of 80,000 registered. On Spotify’s top songs for 2016 where the work of 226 songwriters appeared only 31 were women (13,7%) and the rest were 195 men (86,3%). Only 6,3% of the top earning copyright owners between 2010 and 2016 were women.

This is what EQLovesFestifval wants to change and to put a stop to the inequalities.
