Meltdown: Violet Nights: We Need Some More Girls In Here

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

Discuss the gender gap in the music industry and how to tackle it, for this Meltdown edition of Violet Nights.

With only 20 out of 200 artists on the Billboard chart being women and the current 2017 Reading and Leeds line up booking one female act to 57 male acts; it is clear that the gender imbalance is stark.

Join us for a night of discussion, performances and DJ sets as we tried to find ways to break down the gender bias.

Acts to be announced.
