Dan rock žena
Hellcats bodo tudi letos na vse ženskem večeru na velikem odru Orto bara predstavile ljubljanski publiki novi dve dekliški skupini.
Ženska rokenrol družina se nezadržno veča in v Sloveniji k temu največ pripomore festival Dan rock žena, ki že od leta 2015 organizirata sestri Saša in Sonja Zagorc iz skupine Hellcatsil v najbolj rokerskem klubu v državi – v Orto baru – na začetku v zgornji manjši dvorani, zadnja leta pa se je dogodek zaradi velikega zanimanja preselil v večjo spodnjo, koncertno dvorano.
Namen festivala je že od samega začetka enak in na prvem mestu je iskanje in spodbujanje kvalitetnih ustvarjalk v rock glasbi širšega spektra in jim nuditi referenčno prizorišče za svoj udarni nastop pred zahtevno ljubljansko publiko.
Do sedaj so se predstavile tako uveljavljene kot neuveljavljene skupine, ki jim je nastop na dnevu rock žena pomenil pomembno etapo v nadaljnji karieri. Sicer je za festival vedno več prijav in zanimanja za nastope, na različnih nivojih pa se je razvila tudi konstruktivna debata o položaju žensk v glasbi. Po svetu je takih dogodkov vedno več in organizatorke so na ta zemljevid umestile tudi Slovenijo.

In 2012 the all-female quartet was invited to tour Russia. where they played a series of gigs, including the biggest rock festival in Kaluga titled “Zheleznye devy” or “Iron Girls” and travelled from Moscow to Kaluga, Ryazan to Tula and Tambov City. In the summer of 2012 they were chosen among more than 400 groups and performed at the biggest music festival Jelen Demofest in Banja Luka (BIH). In 2013 they released their debut album Divja pot in Slovenian language and in 2014, the English version Warrior Princess was released in Milano at the beginning of their Italian tour. In 2015 they went on a first German tour and in 2022 on first England tour, which was a great step, because they were very well accepted there. They are returning back in 2023. They have released four videos, »Steelrider«, »Now is my time«, »Demon Dreams« and »I am«.
