A day destined to enlighten your ears and feed your soul, the 1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover 2020 will once again celebrate women’s achievements in music, highlighting the songwriters, producers, writers, performers, remixers, artists and musicians who have made our lives so sound. Expect genre fluid gloriousness from 9am till midnight as we embrace all things grime, hip hop, house, indie, jazz, Latin, new wave, psych, punk, R’n’B, reggae, riot grrrl, rock, ska, and techno.
A celebration we are always proud to be part of the 1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover 2020 has become one of our favourite days of the year (and that’s without the possibility of a slice of Wildblood birthday cake). A day that brings our station together like no other, it is set to enhance your Sunday just right as we come together with our 1BTN sisters to place IWD20’s campaign theme #EachForEqual at the heart of the day.
