New platform ‘WILM’ offers up a database of female sound engineers, tour managers, stagehands and more

A new platform, Women In Live Music (WILM), is putting together a database of women working in various ‘behind-the-scenes’ roles in the live music sector.

WILM is a European platform and online community for women in the industry, and a tool for bands, booking agencies and companies looking for female crewmembers.

The website’s ‘Crew List’ features female sound engineers, tour managers, lighting designers, riggers, backliners, stage managers, stagehands and more.

Headed up by experienced live sound engineers Malle Kaas and Hannah Brodrick, the WILM website and social media accounts constitute a starting point in connecting members members.

“We interact on social media on a daily basis, where everyone, regardless of gender is invited to share experiences, pictures, and tips with other members,” said WILM.

“The community then goes beyond, into organising workshops and meet-ups throughout Europe. During these events, members can interact, learn and forge long-lasting friendships with like-minded individuals. These events therefore aspire to create a supportive and inspiring community.”
