DANCE MUSIC HAS GENDER ISSUES
8/3/22

 

Female and non-binary artists were the primary performers on just 5% of the most popular dance and electronic tracks in the U.K. from 2020 to 2022, according to a new report on gender representation within the genre.

In contrast, 58% of the tracks analyzed in the report by The Jaguar Foundation—set up by BBC Radio 1 DJ Jaguar Bingham—had an exclusively male performer as the primary artist and feature.

In total, 95% of tracks included a male name, while 42% included a female or non-binary artist as the primary or featured artist (this latter definition counted for the majority).

On radio, the picture is similar. While 44% of the top 200 dance/electronic airplay tracks across 2020-21 feature a female or non-binary artist, less than 1% featured non-male acts exclusively. Over 99% of tracks included male artists, while 55% featured male artists exclusively.

In 2022, the average percentage of female and non-binary dance and electronic music artists performing at sampled festivals was 28%, which has risen from 14% in 2018.
