Glastonbury is an event that has rocked the British countryside for years, and this year will be no different. In the year of our Lord, 2023, British festival rock fans will be glad to hear that they will get to see such acts as Guns n’ Roses and Elton John. But Emily Eavis has something to say about the all-male lineup.
As per RadioX, Emily commented on the gender disparity on the Glastonbury Festival line-up. As some may say, there’s always one.
The Somerset Festival confirmed Arctic Monkeys and Guns n’ Roses would join Elton John as bill-toppers, giving Glastonbury 2023 all-male headliners.
“We’re trying our best so the pipeline needs to be developed,” the festival organizer told The Guardian. “This starts way back with the record companies, radio. I can shout as loud as I like but we need to get everyone on board.”
The daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis went on to explain that they had intended for a woman to feature at the top of the bill this year, GNR took over her slot due to the artist’s touring schedule.
While it has not been confirmed who it is, Taylor Swift has been mooted as a suggestion, because Eavis revealed it was a star they’d be hoping to book for the last few years – there might be hope for Emily yet.
