Bestival is among over 100 festivals pledging to diversify their line-ups by 2022

Festivals around the world are pledging to tackle gender inequality to produce more diverse line-ups.

So far over a 100 festival organisations, including Bestival, MUTEK and NYC Winter Jazz Festival, have signed up to the Keychange Campaign and the number is rising.

The pledge, organised by the UK non-profit PRS Foundation, requires festivals to achieve and maintain a 50/50 gender balance by 2022. The campaign is targeting festivals all over the world, but wants a greater emphasis on the UK, USA and Canada.
