Research Results – MUSPRA 352

I have finished the research for my magazine article now and found some quite surprising results: that recently, there has been a decrease in the number of female-inclusive acts at Glastonbury, but an increase in female artists. Based on this, the impact of the Crack in The Road campaign, and Emily Eavis‘ statement, I predict a small increase in the number of female-inclusive acts on the lineup poster, but a large increase in total female artists at the festival.

College Freelance Project No. 3 – MUSPRA 352

So for my music business studies I have to complete three projects: a gig, teaching practice, and an independent one, I am now starting on to the third. For this third project I will be writing a magazine article based around the gender bias in the music industry, specifically at Glastonbury Festival since 1995. I first became fully aware of this issue last year when Crack In The Road launched a campaign showing festival posters with the all-male acts removed…










I will also be researching the writing and format styles used by popular music magazines to see how best to write it and lay it all out. I may even upload it to Rockhaq (an amateur music journalism website) and try to contact Crack in The Road to see if they’re interested.
