Shiragirl Stage Returns for Final Vans Warped Tour Run to Promote Female Recording Artists!

Vans Warped Tour is thrilled to announce the return of the Shiragirl stage! The stage strives to empower female artists and provides a platform for creative expression. Over the years, the stage has hosted over 250 female-fronted bands, many making their Warped debuts, including Paramore on their first ever tour, and the legendary Joan Jett.
According to Pitchfork, in 2017 only 14% of the acts that performed at festivals that year were female (in a survey that logged almost 1,000 bands from large festival line ups). In addition, reported recently that Live Nation launched Women Nation Fund to help assist the growth of female-led live music businesses.
In a world where most festivals have become a “boys club”, the Shiragirl stage ensures a home and safe place for female artists.
“It means a lot to be part of the final Vans Warped Tour and bring back the Shiragirl Stage,” explains Shira Yevin, founder of the stage. “Warped has been such a huge part of my life personally and has allowed us to provide a platform for over 250 female-fronted bands and artists, acting on my mission to empower and inspire women through creative expression. Kevin Lyman has been so supportive our cause over the years, and we really appreciate the chance to make history (or herstory) yet again!”
This year, artists such as The DollyrotsBlameshiftShiragirlElana JNo Small ChildrenWhitney PeytonBridge City SinnersTurbulent HeartsWASI, and Moa with more acts to be announced soon.
The Shiragirl stage would like to thank its sponsors FenderPaistePacifica BeautySoylent,  Toxic Toast Records and Blackheart Records. Fans can find the stage at the Pomona, San Diego and Ventura dates of the 2018 Vans Warped Tour. For more information on the stage, please visit
