Girls to the front: Day three of Notion’s TGE takeover

We gave our stage at The Great Escape over to an all-female line-up on Saturday night and the results were incredible.

Women are chronically underrepresented on festival line-ups. Anyone who’s seen a festival bill in their life and isn’t a men’s rights activist knows this. Naturally then, when we were handed a stage for three days over The Great Escape we wanted to help redress the balance by not only making our overall line-up female-heavy but handing over a full day of our stage to female-identifying artists.

 

Kicking off the evening was London’s Suzi Wu. Bringing things to life with her unique take on post-punk she ran through a set of high-octane tracks including breakout single ‘Teenage Witch’. Throwing herself about the stage she came off like 2018’s answer to Siouxie Sioux, only with ski-goggles and better taste in streetwear.

 

Stripping things back a notch, Nadia Nair came all the way from Sweden to grace the stage with her ethereal, poetic tracks. Captivating the audience with her electronic soul constructions and ever-so off-kilter vocal she had Shooshh in silence for the duration of her bustling set, the quiet only breaking for rounds of applause between songs.
