Women DJs Fight For Recognition In Electronic Dance Music

Several of the biggest names at this year’s Lollapalooza festival are EDM artists. The electronic dance music craze is lighting up the charts, but there is a noticeable lack of female artists wooing the crowds with their turntables.

The festival this weekend only includes one female artist in the entire four-day lineup at Perry’s, the EDM stage. Morning Shift talks to Lyndsey Havens, staff writer at WXRT and EDM artist DJ Psycho Bitch about why so few women are finding success on the EDM scene and what’s being done to solve the problem.
