The newly-concluded Glastonbury Festival, which has been held since 1970, has inherited the hippie and rock spirit and is also known as the "Woods Tucker of the United Kingdom". But the organiser, Emily Eavis, recently pointed out that the music industry has long ignored women, even though she has been planning music festivals for nearly two decades, "a lot of music executives still don't want to work with me, and they're going to say, "I'm going to talk to your dad (83). 』」

The Glastonbury Festival, which just ended on June 30, is one of the world's biggest rock festivals. Since 1970, it has been an important source of hippie culture and rock music, attracting nearly 150,000 people each year. The likes of Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Oasis and Radiohead have all taken to the main stage, also known as "Britain's "Woods Tucker."

The festival's founder is Michael Eavis, a cheese farmer. In 1969, he and his wife were moved by a performance of led Zeppelin. The coming year, he brought his dairy farm to the festival, which is now the world's largest open-air music festival.

Emily Eavis: "Twenty years later, they still want to talk to my dad first. "

Many years ago, Michael Eavis announced his retirement, leaving the festival hosting the festival to his daughter Emily Eavis to take over. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 4, Emily revealed that there has long been discrimination against women in the music industry. Including the non-emphasis on women's opinions, the high-level executives are all male, the proportion of performances is always more male than female. Political circles, music circles, film circles, there is often no shortage of such cases.

Emily points out:

A lot of music executives still don't want to work with me, and even after nearly two decades, they'll say, "I'm going to talk to your dad (83). 」

Emily, 40, who has nearly two decades of experience in festival preparation, admitted in an interview: "The concert scene has always been dominated by men, I often have meetings with a whole table of men, some men are nice, but some men, just refuse to accept the fact that they have to work with me." ("The live world has been so male-dominated," she told BBC Radio 4's Island Discs. "I go to meetings with just tables of men. Some have great, and some just to refuse to right to at then has had to have with with me." )

"People don't always take women's words seriously, especially since I'm not just a woman, I'm the daughter of someone. But my father had already given me this responsibility and trained me enough to host the whole event. 」

Number one list of men and women: female musicians must be false singing, political correctness before the list?

Many music festival fans, often privately joked:"Female singers will not be on the number one list of the festival (Headliners). Even if there is, it is often just for political correctness. Since 2007, 82% of the number one lists have been male, according to the Guardian. Beyonce in 2011 and Adele in 2016 have also been the number one list of "only group" women.

And even if the festival is hosted and women's names are placed on the number one list, it often draws laughter from music fans who think that these female singers and orchestras are "not real performers". In 2019, for example, Janet Jackson's inclusion in the top of the list, placed in front of The Killers and Cures, has sparked a fan-fan derision about how mainstream female singers could be put in front of rock and roll.

However, her live performance received a Guardian rating of 4. There are also fans who point out that these black people, just not used to "their music festival" on the number one list, appear a woman. Compared to men, as a female musician, it often seems to take more effort and perfection to prove that she stands there, not because of the protection, but because she is really so good.

Emily Eavis: "At least the performer's gender should strive to reach 1:1"

In an interview with the BBC, Emily also mentioned emily's plans for the festival: "We want to be looking forward to the performers at 5:50. In some years, the sex ratio was six to four for men and women. It's still a challenge and we're working on it. I also fully agree that the participation rate of gender equality is very important. ("We are as of workings 50/50," she said last week. "Some years it's 60/40. It's a challenge we've really take on, and i'm always total lly every day it's gender balance be right ." )

This year's show, hailed by the BBC as "an important female moment in the history of the Glastonbury Festival," reads:

"The Glastonbury Festival 2019 is not just about a particular star's performance, it's about how good it is and how it's going to outperform other stars. The highlight of the year is the festival itself. (Glastonbury 2019 wasn't't about one star star breaking out over the the rest. This year the make moment moment came for the festival itself. )

We often thank the music festival, give us a unique touching moment, the spirit of the stage, with the singer singing, sweating and weeping. What makes The Glastonbury Festival, however, even more special is that it reminds us that women are still subject to a lot of restrictions in the music scene and are willing to break with the unwritten practice of the festivals and provide a stage for more diverse people.

The stage of the scene often seems to be the epitome of the stage of life. When the scene is life, every you and you, it is worth finding their own shining moment. (Extended reading: Live like a hippie! Summer Limited Activities: Markets, Music Festivals, Camping)
