Halsey decries male dominated Firefly lineup: ‘It’s 2018, do better!!!’

This post was originally published on this site

Bolstered by headlining slots from Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Arctic Monkeys, and The Killers, Firefly Music Festival’s recent lineup reveal for its seventh iteration inDelaware’s Woodlands elicited excitement from many music fans enamored with the diversity of the genres represented on the lineup.

And yet Firefly’s genre variation failed to impress a handful who decried a lack of gender variation.

“Damn guys come onnnnnn. Where the women at,” Halsey wrote in a Facebook post. “This was one of my favorite festivals I’ve ever played and it’s a shame there’s not more females on the bill.”

Halsey proceeded to identify R&B vocalist, SZA, as an exception to her complaint. An outlier of the male dominated lineup, the “Love Galore” singer is scheduled to appear alongside other top billing acts including ODESZA, Lil Wayne, Logic, Martin Garrix, Alt-J, and more.
It’s 2018, do better!!!” Halsey advises festival organizers at the conclusion of her first Facebook post on the matter.

Not long after publishing the initial post, Halsey posted another status in response to fans’ urges for the singer to “go off.”

“Who am I supposed to ‘go off’ on?” Halsey questioned. “Festivals ASK artists to play…I’m just raising a point! So many dope women in music right now!”

Festival organizers have not yet responded to Halsey’s posts.

Firefly Will Become First Completely Fan-Curated Music Festival

This post was originally published on this site

It all sort of started with EDC calling its attendees “headliners,” but the concept of “the customer is always right” has been around for decades. Unfortunately, that concept has taken a long time to permeate through music festivals, but finally Firefly is taking that mantra to the umpteenth degree in 2017.

Next year, Firefly will become the first completely fan-curated music festival. This means that fans will have a say in the artists, in the art installations, in the food, the merchandising, the pre-party… everything except the location of the venue.

Christiane Pheil, Red Frog Events’ Creative Programming Director, tells Consequence of Sound, “It won’t just live within talent anymore. We realized how much people were engaged and loving being involved in the talent portion of the event, so we were like why are we just doing this with the lineup? Why not do it with everything?”

In total, there will be around 40 different surveys for fans to participate in that will shape how Firefly turns out next year.

Ticket on-sale and the lineup will be announced in early 2017, but you can head to FireflyFestival.com now to begin telling organizers what you want this year’s fest to be like. Firefly lands at The Woodlands in Dover, DE on June 15th-18th.

Crop tops are SO big now and it’s probably going to be trending for a while. I mean its perfect for the hot summer days to slip on a cool crop top for the perfect festival look. Pair it with high-waisted shorts or flowy tribal pants like Kendall Jenner. I style it with my round floral shades and some rugged booties. AH! the go-to look for summer. Continue reading
