The This is Hardcore festival has posted a statement about the festival's lack of women. I guess the tacit acknowledgement is better than Skate and Surf's current tactic. Festival coordinator Joe McKay posted a longer "venting" message on Facebook as well.
This is Hardcore has recently been called out for not having enough women in the bands in this year’s line-up. We recognize that there is an issue with women being valued and given visibility in the hardcore music scene. The TIHC team is mostly made up of women, who work tirelessly to put on the fest every year. We spend months going through submissions of bands, trying to put together a diverse group of bands that pulls together old...

If you're looking for a good way to watch Coachella this weekend, I recommend this page.
There's lots of acts at Coachella I want to listen to this year that are all playing on different channels.

Right now it's only setup for weekend 1, but I'll update it before next weekend so that you can use the same URL to listen then also.
