What’s better than a band that met through the magic of the JMC music community?

Jade, Angie, Isabella, Lauren and Nikolai are five mates from Meanjin/Brisbane who have joined sonic forces to create the cutest supergroup you could spy on a JMC campus, but Worm Girlz is way more than just a band. Worm Girlz is an energy; a way of life; a mantra. Why be anything else when you can be a worm girl?  

Launching in March 2023 as a supergroup of two previous JMC bands (Jade Not Jane and Mellow) Worm Girlz have leapt (wiggled) from strength to strength, touring the East Coast of Australia with Dusty, and supporting artists including Carla Geneve and Haters. The Worm Girlz debut single, ‘Dirt’, arrived on November 16 to a world of hype, already receiving airplay across the country on Australia’s biggest music stations. 

Made up from fem, non-binary members and championing safe and inclusive live shows for all, Worm Girlz have already gained experience touring interstate, with a rapidly growing fan base and media support towards the release of their debut single, ‘Dirt’. Laneway Festival has selected Worm Girlz as the JMC rep for 2024 for their high-energy live sets and uncompromising dedication to being their authentic selves! 

Worm Girlz are joining an insane lineup of artists including Stormzy, Steve Lacy, Dominic Fike, AJ Tracey, Angie McMahon, Confidence Man and many more. We can’t WAIT to see what comes for the band in the lead up to Laneway and beyond!
