EDC Las Vegas‘s 20th anniversary was filled with three nights of great performances across 8 stages. In additional to the phenomenal lineup and top quality production, Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland went down in history as the first female solo acts to perform the kineticFIELD Main Stage.
Gender is irrelevant when it comes to music, the art should speak for itself.
Unfortunately, female artists have been a minority in the dance music world for years and the few female DJs usually pertain to the house/tech-house genres. More bass focused genres such as trap, dubstep, and future bass are mostly male-dominated with the exception of a handful of female producers such as Nina Las Vegas, Mija, CRAY, and Yntendo.
With both Anna Lunoe and Alison Wonderland killing their performances on the main stage, hopefully this will inspire women to cast their doubts aside and enter into the dance music scene.
Alison Wonderland said:
“This is the first year EDC Las Vegas has had women on the main stage. I feel honoured and also a massive responsibility to represent what’s right.”
