Later, she elaborated additional on her Instagram story: “We had 1 hell of a fantastic time – what a crowd & the entire festival employees have been awesome & so welcoming…but walking into the backstage when we arrived and actually not seeing 1 womxn in web site (spotted a handful of later) and then hunting at the line up to see who’s playing…
“think I counted five music acts that had a womxn artist in them out of 25 acts. None as headliners. That is like 20% of the line up that consists of a womxn as a member.”
