Tomorrowland concluded yesterday with an amazing lineup of artists. DUA LIPA was one of a handful of female artists to play, and after her set, made a massive tweet saying she was the FIRST female artist to ever play Tomorrowland…
…which is totally not true. Many women have taken the stage at Tomorrowland, including Rezz, Alison Wonderland, Nora en Pure, and more. Even in the same day as LIPA’s performance, NERVO played after her, and Krewella before her.
First ever international female artist to play Tomorrowland!!! Such an insane experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and thank you @martingarrix for also having me join your set to sing STBL always so fun! 💜💜💜💜💜 pic.twitter.com/xz1JZlF75S

After this tweet, Dua Lipa also posted a tweet about Lollapalooza Paris, which she also played this weekend. Many poked fun at the tweet, asking her if she was the “first female artist to play [Lollapalooza]” also.

TL;DR: Dua Lipa needs to do some fact-checking before making such huge claims as being the first woman to play at a festival.
