Female Techno DJs dominated the festival circuit in 2018 – The 2019 IMS Business Report

The 2019 IMS Business Report (hosted by Kevin Watson – IMS Business Report; Author, UK), has highlighted a number of analytical peaks and troughs within the industry, however, it also indicates a significant point on rebalancing festival line-ups.

Analysis by Festicket shows that Nina Kraviz played twice as many festivals as the leading band, The Killers, with 34 in total. Amelie Lens and Charlotte de Witte also feature in the Top 5. In addition, Nina, Amelie & Charlotte have grown their Instagram, YouTube & Spotify fanbases faster than the Top 5 DJs in the Viberate rankings over the past year.
