That tweet tagged pop star Lily Allen as this is not the first time the festival has announced a line up heavily in favour of male artists. In 2018 Allen tweeted: "the struggle is real" as she showed that only three female artists had been booked that year.

Social media personality and YouTuber Harry Pinero tweeted in agreement with the lack of diversity:
"Nah Wireless are violating with that line up, there are BARE ladies who have shelled this year and should be there."
