The Bandstand 
Gender discrimination and the imbalance of gender representation are widespread in festival lineups, staffing, venues’ programming and on the bandstand. What can we do to broaden this musical landscape to ensure that every musician contributing to the ecosystem has equitable access? This track acknowledges this imbalance and will bring panoramic perspectives from musicians, managers, curators/producers and venue directors in relation to pay inequity, patriarchy, nepotism, lazy curating, allyship, and consent culture.
