And this is my exact issue with the festival. Not a single female headline since 2014.

My issue with the festival is that, judging them on the actual music, the line-ups get progressively worse. Male, female, whatever, the line ups are almost always uninspiring.

Only 3 of them for me are even outright headline sized, Disclosure and Catfish should not be on that level though. Catfish are doing Singleton Park in Wales for £35 a ticket to 10k people. If Catfish was actually on 2nd stage before Liam though it would have maybe been a day tickets depending what else is on but there are 4 headliners there I wouldn't take notice of.

 This is what happens when a festival decides to go the 2 main stage route. You stretch the idea of a headliner and get some weaker names. Look at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits in the U.S. for the model of that over the last decade. Bonnaroo does it now to an extent because they have more flexibility on curfew. They just want to try and wow people with names and not give a shit if its quality or headliner worthy.

Yep I agree. But there are so many females and male artists who could save this festival. And I would like to see a mix to diversify and rejuvenate the festival to its former glory.

The line ups are just shit now.

If there's no clashes then I feel that headliners on the second stage will essentially be subs, with the subs on that stage being equivalent to 4th down and so on. If the plan is to rotate the stages by act.

That's what he wants you to look at it like....but say you don't watch the last for eg I wouldn't stay around for Stormzy after Catfish unless say The Pit had The Cribs.

Honestly I told my girlfriend the headliners and the only one she was slightly interested in was Catfish. Then I pointed out she can just see them in Swansea for £40 and she just said "oh yeah, fuck it then".

Exactly my think and have a weekend in Wales. I think I'm going to give SD a miss this year so.

Personally I'd like PJ Harvey and Garbage to be booked - will never happen though.

When the only female on the line up is Mabel and she is the highest up, you know the organisers are sexist and haven't even tried to bother booking female artists.

Sofi Tukker, Doja Cat, 100 Gecs, Ashnikko, Beabadoobee, Lyra, Madison Beer
