Non-profit group Girls Rock Dublin (GRD) are part of a movement of rock camps (Girls Rock) started in Portland, Oregon, in 2001 and now in more than 100 cities worldwide. Driven by the desire to achieve gender equality in the music industry, Girls Rock helps women and girls build self-esteem and find their voices through collaboration in a fun, inclusive environment. Music is the means through which the movement seeks to create a positive impact at both a personal and community level.

Sponsored by MusicMaker, Sound Training College, Some Neck Guitars and Full Aeon, the first GRD camp will be hosted in premium Dublin music facilities Sound Training College and Temple Lane Studios.

Run by an all-woman team, coaches and volunteers include musicians active in the local independent music scene (Niamh Farrell from Ham Sandwich, Naoise Roo, Bitch Falcon, Jess Kavanagh from Barq, Fierce Mild, Maija Sofia and more).

In line with the global movement’s ethos and mission, GRD value diversity: applicants from socially underrepresented groups are welcome. Two scholarships will be granted to applicants with low income.

The camp is for people who self-identify as women (trans* and cis) or gender non-binary, aged 18-24.

Applications are now open at

Future camps and events for younger and older groups are currently being planned.

For enquiries, to join as a volunteer or to support the project as a sponsor, please reach out to
