Why Women Are Campaigning For More Female Headliners At Rock Festivals


Download Festival Leeds & Reading Festival The Distillers Babymetal

Since it was revealed that a mere handful of female artists were scattered across the Reading & Leeds Festival line-up and the fast majority were male musicians, feminist music lovers have been expressing their annoyance that festival organisers still can't manage a gender-balanced line-up in 2020 - a time when gender equality issues are at their most prominent.

The Australian-American punk band’s lead singer Brody Dalle began dropping hints back in January this year that the group, which broke up in 2006 after their most recent album Coral Fang three years previously, would be up to something in 2018.

On Wednesday (September 12th), the band shared their first new songs in a decade and a half, with ‘Man vs. Magnet’ backed with another track, ‘Blood In Gutters’, which was originally a Brody Dalle solo track in 2014, presented as a classic A/B-side single.
