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.
