It’s no secret that many major music festivals have lacked female acts, particularly when it comes to headliners, and Emily has now claimed this is something she’s determined to fix.
Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, she said: “We really want to address the imbalance in those areas.
In recent years, the Eavis family has booked a series of big name female acts, with Beyoncé topping the bill in 2011, before Florence + The Machine’s last-minute bump up to the top spot in 2015, which took place when Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg just a week before the event.
Then, as if we could forget, superstar Adele broke her strict no-festivals rule to delight fans at the Pyramid State last year.
While none of this year’s headline acts are female, the xx - with Romy Madley Croft - and ‘Roar’ superstar Katy Perry are on the second row of the line-up poster.
