Earlier this week, the When We Were Young festival unveiled more than 50 artists for the 2024 lineup, with almost all of them playing a classic album in full. While that sent a shockwave through the scene, so did the apparent lack of diversity on the bill and, as artists and fans have pointed out, women in particular.

Of the 50-plus representatives of "the scene," just five acts feature women in their lineup. And of those five, one of them (3OH!3) features a woman (Jess Bowen) who is a touring member of the group.

Scene Queen, one of the scene's rising new stars whose feminist lyrics are a welcome dose of empowerment, calls out the lack of women artists on the 2024 lineup on X (formerly Twitter), saying it is "jarring" to see such little representation.

Pop/country singer-songwriter and vocalist of the scene favorites Hey Monday Cassadee Pope agrees, commenting, "I gasped when I saw. There's zero effort. Pretty disappointing."

Directly below, every artist set to perform at next year's festival are listed, with acts featuring at least one woman in bold.

With one quick scroll, the eye test alone supports the claims of others (which can be seen further down the page) who express dismay over the bill's diversity, shouting out a number of acts which feature women that the fest could have also booked.
