Glastonbury: Christine and the Queens singer Heloise Letissier has a message for organisers

Heloise Letissier also praised fellow female performers Solange, Billie Eilish and Beyoncé in an interview after her Glastonbury set.

It might be happening at a glacial pace, but at least progress is being made.

Glastonbury: Christine and the Queens singer Heloise Letissier gave a killer performance.             

She then explained what the best next steps are for the industry to properly address the gender disparity. 

“I think the next step to take it even further would be to have more women having really technical jobs, like female sound engineers, female producers,” she continued. “That’s the next step to reach at some point.”

To further prove how much sexism is ingrained in the music scene, especially at festivals, Glastonbury has only had two female headliners (Adele and Beyoncé) since 2007.

Commenting on this inequality, Letissier added: “When we see where we’re reaching with equality, we look back and see how we were lacking it before. It’s really interesting that, the more we’re moving forward, the more we’re actually like, ‘Well…’ It makes us realise how much we still have to do and that it’s not a reflex yet, it’s not natural yet.”
