»Pop-Festivals: Welche Gesellschaft soll das abbilden?« – Panel von Deutschlandfunk Kultur (De)

Christoph Reimann (host), Graf Fidi, Jana Posth, Juliane Reil (host), Misla Tesfamariam

Many festival line-ups can leave you feeling disillusioned. Where are the women? Where are the people of colour, where are the people with disabilities? A disproportionate number of White, abled, cis men still dominate events – not only on stage but also behind the scenes and in the audience. Shouldn’t we be beyond that? But perhaps a little more understanding is in order. After two and a half years of the pandemic, festival organisers are facing special economic challenges – and are playing it safe. Moreover, the industry is short of staff, as many former employees have long since sought more secure employment. How do we create a festival landscape that is there for everyone? And who is particularly in demand here? That’s what we want to talk about – with the rapper and inclusion ambassador Graf Fidi, project manager at Lollapalooza Berlin Jana Posth and the artist manager Misla Tesfamariam.
