As we campaign for equality, honor International Womenâ€™s Day, and women in the UK celebrate 100 years since they were allowed the vote, we applaud more fantastic news as his yearâ€™s Coachella has seen a big increase in the amount of females playing the festival â€“ Â the Girl Power revival returns.
Mark Ortega at Pass The Aux writes, â€˜Of the 165 acts currently billed, at least 55 of them feature women prominently.Â Fifty-six of 166 acts means women represent 33.3 percent of that Coachella 2018 lineup. That is a dramatic increase from last yearâ€™s 25.1 percent and 2016â€™s total of 28.3 percent â€” which until this year was a festival high mark.â€
