Female musicians not taken seriously – study
Earlier this month, a report prepared by DR and the Band Academy revealed that only 10 percent of the royalties that Koda monitored in 2021 went to female musicians. Now a new survey among about 1,500 people from Kvinfo reveals a skewed gender balance in the music industry, where women face significantly more barriers than men. Women are far more likely to experience job loss because of their gender: 18 vs. 4 percent. Furthermore, 35 percent (4 for men) believe that gender plays an important role in an assessment of their ability, and 27 percent (1) have experienced not being taken seriously because of their gender.

No Oscar for Denmark, but enough to reflect on
Denmark did not manage to win an Oscar, with ‘Flugt’ the biggest loser of the night, as it was up to three awards: Best International Film, Best Animated Film and Best International Film. But at least its disappointed director did not hit anyone on stage. Chris Rock has only performed in Denmark once – at the Royal Arena in 2017 – but we do not think he was hit on that occasion.

Flawless fours: what do they have against the Irish?
It is well documented that ’s critic Thomas Treo is not a big fan of U2’s output from the 21st century and cares stick the knife in every time they come to Denmark, but the concern is growing that all Danish reviewers share a reluctance to Irish cultural production. Over the course of a week, Irish productions received rave reviews from the media, but received only four stars out of six. Primarily, DR repeatedly praised Oscar-nominated Belfast without a single criticism, to a point that the applause began to feel repeated, but still only gave it a flawless four out of six. And then CPH Culture did the same in its review of That Theater Company production ‘Rub-A-Dub-Dub’, a new play by Irishman Fergal O’Byrne. Everything was flawless, it looked like… but somewhere the piece hit an invisible fence and lost two stars. The CPH POST review, on the other hand, did not hold back in its criticism: that was, after all, why the play lost a star in the final showdown.
