The FEMME HOUSE TAKEOVER TOUR with headliner LP Giobbi is presenting a unique experience with club shows by night and music workshops by day. As the tour pulls into Boston tomorrow (March 11), they are pleased to announce their collaboration with W Hotels for the workshop locations in Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, Scottsdale, AZ, Seattle and San Francisco and due to popular demand are expanding the capacity of their in-person free workshop sizes.
Only about 2% of producers are non-male. FEMME HOUSE--a non-profit educational platform that seeks to create equitable opportunities for women and other marginalized gender expressions in the technical areas of music creation--is taking action for change. Underway now, each date will feature a nighttime club show with FEMME HOUSE co-founder, American inspirational producer, DJ, label owner, curator, music director, feminist, entrepreneur and Piano House Queen LP Giobbi. During the day of each tour stop, LP Giobbi and Ableton Certified Trainers will host free intro to music production workshops, workshops on production and DJing, and professional development events in select markets hosted with She Is The Music. Immersive online courses will be offered on a “pay what you can” basis and $1 of every ticket sold will support FEMME HOUSE programming. Attendees can also apply for the FEMME HOUSE Scholarship for BIPOC Creators providing four artists per year free gear and one-on-one mentorship. Tickets for all club shows and workshop RSVP can be found at: Takeover Tour 2022 — FEMME HOUSE (thisisfemmehouse.com).
“When I first started out, I learned that only about 2% of charting producers were non-male. It’s what drove me to build FEMME HOUSE, and combine the power of education with the freedom of the dance floor,” shares LP Giobbi. “The FEMME HOUSE Takeover Tour will innovate the concert-going experience by offering free production workshops during the day and an epic club party highlighting a gender expansive lineup at night, providing the education, opportunity, and visual representation critical to changing that 2% stat. Your support of this tour isn’t just a concert ticket, it’s a way for you to create the change we all want to see. Can’t wait to see you all on the dance floor.”

ABOUT FEMME HOUSE:
FEMME HOUSE fosters more equitable opportunity for women and gender-expansive individuals in the technical and behind the scenes areas of music. We are creating the future producers, mixers, engineers, DJs, artists, and executives of the industry by providing education and scholarships, cultivating community, propagating visual representation, and offering professional development opportunities.
Since 2019, FEMME HOUSE has expanded their programming to include free workshops on everything from music production to DJing, specialized online coursework on studio techniques, a weekly radio show on SiriusXM highlighting the best of dance music, a bi-yearly scholarship program for BIPOC creators, and a robust online platform featuring the foremost female and gender-expansive talent. By tearing down as many barriers to entry as possible, they are affecting change on a systemic, industry-wide level.
In 2021, FEMME HOUSE expanded their educational impact by collaborating with She Is The Music and We Are Moving The Needle to create She Is The Producer—a free production bootcamp that educated over 3,000 individuals from over 1,400 cities in 77 countries worldwide. In 2022, they plan to expand on that impact by creating more pathways for education and exposure of women and gender expansive individuals, starting with the FEMME HOUSE Tour.
