Augmented lineup: Women-led dance music festival comes to Hackney Wick


A new festival that aims to “help balance gender inequality in the world of electronic music” with programming dedicated to those who “represent female energy” is coming to east London.

Risen, which will take over 10 venues from Hackney Wick on April 9, is an exciting outlier in a festival scene, both in London and the rest of the country, which has come under heavy criticism for its line-ups. predominantly male.

In 2021, just 21% of acts booked at major UK festivals were women or identified as women, with that percentage dropping to 10% at South London’s Wireless event. And while many full lineups are yet to be confirmed for 2022, bookings of big male hits at festivals like Download, Isle of Wight and Reading and Leeds suggest major readjustments won’t happen this year.

“Risen is a festival organized by women to shine a light on the emerging talents who work so tirelessly in the music industry, whether it’s DJs, event managers, graphic designers, technicians lighting, etc,” said Kitty Bartlett, reservations manager. and events manager at Risen. “It’s time for a new energy.”

With an “open to all” dance floor, Risen will host artists from across the spectrum of electronic music, spanning house, disco, garage, techno and beyond. Performers will include DJs from Foundation FM, one of the capital’s leading online radio stations, Manchester favorite Madam X, London club regular Club Fitness and many more.
