Hit Like A Girl® Announces “HLAG-X” 10th Anniversary Contest And Celebration.

Hit Like A Girl— the global contest for girls, women and gender expansive drummers and beatmakers— has announced new dates and developments for the 2021 Hit Like A Girl Contest. Designated as HLAG-X (since 2021 is the 10th Anniversary of the groundbreaking, online program), this year’s event will include the 10th edition of the contest, ten of today’s most influential drummers as spokespeople and ten regional contests plus many other celebrations of female drumming and beatmaking throughout the year.

Dates for HLAG-X:

  • March 1 – April 11, 2021: Contest Entry
  • April 12 – April 25, 2021: Public Voting
  • April 26 – May 6, 2021: Celebrity Judging
  • May 14, 2021: Champions & Winners Announced

While the list of this year’s celebrity spokespeople has yet to be announced, regional Hit Like A Girl contests have already been confirmed in China, France, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, South America, Southeast Asia, Turkey and the UK. These events run in tandem with the main Hit Like A Girl contest and are organized by local volunteers who collaborate with media, sponsors, judges and educators in each geographic region.

In addition to the contest and other planned celebrations, Hit Like A Girl has contacted many past champions, winners and judges to get updates on their recent drumming activities. The videos of these inspiring and informative stories will be presented on the Hit Like A Girl website and social pages throughout the course of the year.

    This is truly an opportunity for young women to express themselves, musically and show off thier talent. However, i sincerely hope that it will be judged, not by popularity, but by the discipline, concentration, & passion that is displayed by these young ladies. Drumming is the ultimate multitask, and sometimes therapy for the drummer & the listener. It was also a real pleasure to see so many participants having fun with something that they love. Rock on ladies, may the best girl win.
