Glastonbury Festival's Emily Eavis has spoken of the problems she's faced from men in the music industry.
The Glasto organiser was talking on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, saying: "The live music world has been so male-dominated.
"I go to meetings with just tables of men. Some were great, and some just refuse to accept that they had to deal with me."
Eavis, who runs the iconic festival with her father Michael, also spoke of Glastonbury's goal of achieving a 50/50 gender split.
‘We are working toward 50/50. Some years it’s 60/40. It’s a challenge for us and we’ve really taken it on and I’m always totally conscious every day that the gender balance should be right. ‘Every day when I’m booking I’m thinking about that and cajoling stage bookers to be onboard with it. Some of them have been here a long time so it’s a little bit of hustle. But we’re getting there.’
Glastonbury begins on June 26, with Stormzy headlining to become the first black British solo artist to do so. Other performances over the weekend come from The Chemical Brothers, Lauryn Hill, Janet Jackson, Wu-Tang Clan, Kamasi Washington, The Streets, The Comet Is Coming, Carl Cox, Seth Troxler, Neneh Cherry and loads more.
