About Salt + Sass

Salt + Sass is a quarterly event series that began in 2015 at SoundCloud HQ in Berlin.

We host conversations with women who work in various professions within the music industry. These conversations are moderated by a journalist in front of an audience.

Our vision is to connect, celebrate & bring visibility to women working in the music industry.
