    The lineup for last weekend’s 10th annual Hard Summer Music Festival was once again dominated by dudes. The fest is known as the intersection of some of the biggest acts in electronic music and hip-hop, two genres typically populated by male artists. (This year, headliners included Justice, Snoop Dogg, DJ Snake, and Migos.) But even if the bill was testosterone-heavy, there was still a murderer’s row of female artists who were there to leave their mark on not just the festival, but on the industry as a whole. L.A.-based photographer Myles Pettengill was on the ground to capture some of the baddest female performers set to take the stage at the festival, and to ask them the question: What’s the hardest thing about coming up in the music industry as a woman?
