Recently, Splendour came into a music festival and showed just 34 percent of acts with at least one female member. The festival received criticism online due to lack of non-male headliners.

The festival was entirely male-dominated with the performances of Sydney DJ Flume, US rapper Tyler The Creator, US singer King Princess, Julia Jacklin, Thelma Plum, and others. The Strokes were the headliners of Splendour ;the festival completely sidelined the female musicians and showcased the popular male singers and performers.
