Alanis Morissette leads all-female line-up at festival
From BBC - February 14, 2018

A female-led line-up has been announced for the Cornbury Music Festival.

Alanis Morissette will headline the Saturday at the event which takes place from 13 to 15 July at Great Tew, Oxfordshire.

The day also features Mavis Staples, Amy Macdonald, Nina Nesbitt, Pixie Lott, and PP Arnold.

Organiser Hugh Phillimore said: "There's no excuse, none whatsoever, to not have line-ups like this across the board."

Festivals have been coming under increasing criticism in recent years for being too male-dominated.

Wireless Festival was criticised by Lily Allen, who posted a doctored version of the event's poster, with all the male names erased.
