Are you excited for festival season? We are, too. Particularly since more attention is being given to lineup equality.
Recently, THUMP, Broadly (subsidiaries of Vice Media) and Smirnoff announced a new collaborative multimedia project, Top 50 Women Making Noise, intended to increase the representation of women in the music industry with a heavy emphasis on electronic dance music. What’s the goal? Double the women headliners in electronic music. Can I get a hell yeah?
We want to join in too, and show our support. In honor of increasing the presence of women in electronic music, we’ve created an all-women #mixtape of artists coming to Texas this season. We’re stoked to have a bunch of names to pull from Euphoria Fest, which is fast approaching this April 6-9, and has certainly taken a step in the right direction in lineup diversity. Special shout-out to Free Press Summer Fest and newcomer Middlelands for booking so many women artists, as well, and to Foam n’ Glow for booking Candyland as top headliner.
Get out there and show some support! Here’s a list of women coming through Texas to some of our favorite festivals and dance music venues this spring and summer.
