editor’s letter

Festivals are a cornerstone of the alternative season By now we should all be accustomed to the festival ecosystem changing with the seasons. As one dismantles its tents for good, another will spring up in a field in a part of the country you didn’t even know existed. There are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of music festivals in Britain: camping weekends; one-dayers; floating festivals; general-interest arts festivals where you’re just as likely to trip over some experimental theatre group or some agitprop cabaret as you are a third-rate rock band; and, increasingly, urban festivals, those city-based bastions of organised bacchanalia. This summer more than 3.9 million people will go to a festival of one description or another – some of you will be 18, some will be 60, but for…

Oliver BULLOUGH It is a dangerous time to be a journalist in Russia, but Oliver Bullough, author of The Last Man In Russia braved international tension to report on attitudes towards 2018’s World Cup host nation. Bullough says, “Despite perhaps the worst breakdown in relations since the Cold War, every ordinary Volgograder I spoke to was just looking forward to sharing a beer with someone from England.” Anna CONRAD This summer’s Wireless Festival has only three women on the bill, which prompted GQ.co.uk’s News And Features Editor Anna Conrad to ask why diversity in the music industry is still such a problem. “Some festivals have pledged a 50/50 split in their lineups to solve the problem,” says Conrad, who wrote this issue’s Foreword. “But this feels like a sticking plaster for a much…

women, unplugged

There were no female acts at all on Wireless’ Saturday lineup At the start of this year a festival bill went viral for all the wrong reasons – as we’ve come to expect from the term “viral”. Wireless Festival, in London, featured just three women on the lineup, all weekend. When Lily Allen tweeted a doctored version of the event’s poster, with every male artist erased, the retweets swiftly accumulated like a Lottery rollover. The three women’s names hovered in isolation. Mabel’s looked tiny on its own on the Friday. Saturday there wasn’t one woman. Sunday there were just two: Cardi B and Lisa Mercedez. “The struggle is real,” Allen wrote. DJ Annie Mac called the situation “appalling”. It’s a growing trend that festival bills are more likely to be shared for their…

Kiersey Clemons There’s a magic-hour moment when an actor switches up from scene-stealer to star. For 24-year-old Floridian Kiersey Clemons, that moment comes courtesy of new film Hearts Beat Loud – in which she acts, sings and generally charms the hell out of everyone (not least the critics at Sundance). The story of a Brooklyn record store owner (Nick Offerman) bonding with his daughter (Clemons) over the music they play together, it’s hipster Nick Hornby, buoyed by her soaring vocals and sunny charisma. An actor since her teens, Clemons is now booked up till 2020, when she’ll play Iris West in DC’s Flashpoint. Before then there’s survival horror Sweetheart and Zorro update Z. Somehow, we can’t see her screaming for the man-in-the-mask to save her. “Oh no, no, no,” she chides. “I…
