Cat Power, the Julie Ruin + Kim Gordon to Headline Burger-A-Go-Go 2
Now at the height of summer music festival season, many are lamenting the staggering underrepresentation of female artists on festival lineups. California-based indie label Burger Records, however, is helping counteract that with its second annual Burger-A-Go-Go festival.
Cat Power and Kathleen Hanna’s the Julie Ruin and Kim Gordon’s band with Alex Knost, Glitterbust, will all headline this year’s Burger-A-Go-Go 2. Also included on the 2015 roster are Kate Nash, Bleached, Cults, Cherry Glazerr, the Moldy Peaches’ Kimya Dawson, the Aquadolls and more. Check out the complete lineup on the festival poster below; more artists are to be added along the way.
The Burger-A-Go-Go lineup boasts all-female or female-fronted outfits. The California fest is a single but conscientious response to male-dominated festival lineups, something that was well-documented by Fusion, which found that male artists and all-male bands make up 74 percent of this year’s festival rosters.
Burger-A-Go-Go 2 will take place on Saturday, Sept. 5 at the Observatory in Santa Anna, Calif. Tickets are on sale now for $15 per person. You can grab yours at this location.
This weekend, Burger Records will host another of its summer festivals, Burger Boogaloo. The fest will take place in Oakland on July 4 and 5. The lineup features the Mummies, Gories, the Black Lips and more, and it will be hosted by director and pencil-mustachioed actor John Waters. Check out the complete lineup here.
