“The struggle is real”

“That Wireless have booked 3 women over 3 days of festival.”

Charity owner, Solomon Smith said: “We need more women in this line-up Wireless.”

A twitter user said: “Absolutely shocking to see only 3 females on the line-up when there are so many amazing female artists out there.”

Another user defended the festival, saying: “It’s not Wireless’ fault there aren’t many female artists popping atm (at the moment).

“They can only work with what’s out there… The music industry not letting enough females come through is a whole other debate.”

An alternative poster emerged on Twitter full of female artists, such as Stefflon Don, Jhene Aiko and SZA – a Wireless official was quick to dismiss the artwork via email.
