"This partnership feels super historic in a year where we are seeing monumental shifts in the way women are championed and respected in sport, music and entertainment" Electric Lady Director Holly Rankin (Jack River) said.
"We have curated some of the most exciting female Australian artists to play at this event, all whom stand for change and all whom use their voices in their own way."
Leading up to the event, the Electric Lady website will be speaking to female athletes competing in the GC2018 who will be featured on the night.
Inspired by the movement of women electrifying their voices, guitars and rights across the world, Australian musician and curator Holly Rankin (aka Jack River) and The Hopeless Utopian team created the Electric Lady concept to elevate women in music and beyond, across industries such as sport and science.
Electric Lady is part of the Festival 2018 program featuring Amy Shark, The Jungle Giants, Alex the Astronaut, Stella Donelly and more. It's completely free and runs from the 4th to the 15th of April 2018.
