Girls Rock Aotearoa has been helping young women, transgender, intersex, takatāpui, and gender diverse youth form bands, build instrument skills, and write original songs since 2018. We are proud to announce a new To The Front programme for 2023.

This four-day weekend programme take everything that’s made our week-long programmes so successful and give us the opportunity to offer it in new locations across Aotearoa, at new times of the year, and for participants who might not be able to commit to a full week To The Front experience.


The kaupapa of Girls Rock! is to empower youth by giving them practical skills and role models in a safe, supportive space. We are a non-profit organisation made up of musicians and music lovers with years of music industry experience.

We need your help to deliver our new programme format across the lower North Island! Your generosity will help provide our youth the chance to create, to learn and grow, and to let their voices be heard!

To the Front Te Papaioea  30 October 2023

To The Front Te Papaioea is over for

another year and we had a fantastic time!

For 2023, we continued our partnership with The Stomach, holding the programme at their venue, and allowing us to access their state of the art practice studios and equipment.

Some feedback from our youth participants:

“I got to learn important social skills and how to communicate more easily with people.”

Their favourite part of band practice was...

“Matching everyone’s vibe and creating together” “Being able to get to know each other and make music together”

They liked the showcase because...

“It gave me an opportunity to expand my prior knowledge in music production and expanded my social environment.”
