We appreciate that now more than ever is a financially difficult time for some people, so if you are unable to afford a ticket but believe you would benefit from attending 7 DAYS OF SOUND, please fill in this support form and we'll allocate free or donation tickets where appropriate:

The gender imbalance in the music technology industry is well-recognised. While Saffron is absolutely not ‘anti-men’, we see that a shorter-term solution is to provide fellowship and learning environments that are not dominated by the cisgender male perspective. Therefore, the 7 DAYS OF SOUND event is intended for women, non-binary, trans and other gender non-conforming folks to attend. While we do not ban cisgender men from attending, we hope that they will respect that this event is not intended for them.

Saffron Membership starts at just £5 per month on Patreon, giving you access to monthly online workshops, specialist newsletters, free sound libraries from Spitfire Audio and a free Mixcloud Pro account.

Saffron Members get free access to between 1 and 3 single days of 7 DAYS OF SOUND, plus 10 - 20% discount codes to use on the rest of the week.

Saffron is a music tech initiative taking an intersectional approach to redressing the gender imbalance in the industry. Saffron operates as a social enterprise that primarily offers training in music production, sound engineering and DJing, as well as running an artist development program and record label. The music tech industry is currently composed of just 5% women. Saffron’s aim is to increase that figure, advancing gender equality in the sector by creating a safe space for women and non-binary people to learn and build confidence.
