Male DJ’s get booked more for festivals and club nights than females on a regular basis. In the years 2017-2019, only 20.5% of festival DJs were female, while 70.3% were male. TechWorks, an Irish festival in Cork, had a 0% female lineup in 2019. Joe Marner believes this is wrong and reflects badly on on the promoters and festivals involved.
When listening to electronic music, your first thought is not whether it is made by a male or a female. Your first thought is whether you like or dislike the song without knowing the gender of the producer. The world has come a long way regarding gender equality, but there is still a lot more to go. Don’t Call Me Baby is an ongoing series of photographs documenting female DJ’s that preform in Ireland while recording club culture and the crowd enjoying themselves regardless of race, sexuality or gender of the DJ. 1
