A new music festival is underway in Wellington and it's levelling out the gender playing field for performers.
The all-female line-up features some of the biggest names in Kiwi music, from Benee, Gin Wigmore, Ladi6, Foley to Boh Runga.
Peachy Keen is a festival run by women, showcasing women's music.
“We didn't sort of go in with this is a female-heavy line up cause it just kind of happened to be it cause the line-up stands by itself,” says organiser Amber Mossman.
“To be honest, I think it's great vibe that the women will all have as front people and just it’s a different kind of energy,” Boh Runga says.
With a small crowd of 4500 people, it's hoped everyone will feel welcome and safe.
“We really only have one other large festival and some people feel a little bit intimidated by that, so we've been trying to keep it chill. Everyone's calm," Mossman says.
"For example, our security aren’t dressed in high-vis. They’re there to host rather than police."
Female representation has been a focus at music festivals recently.
Singer Ria Hall called for women to be given headliner time slots at Homegrown. And, at Splore last weekend, every act over the three-day line up featured women or was gender-mixed.
“A lot of females get put on line-ups as a sort of, 'Oh we'll tick that gender box, we'll tick that diversity box'. And you'll notice on a lot of the big festivals, the ladies are down the bottom of the bill.
"And it's like, nah, lets pay them what they’re worth,” Mossman says.
