Hipster girl group Haim have revealed in an interview that they fired an agent after learning they’d been paid 10 times less than a male performer sharing a bill at a festival with them.

“We had been told that our fee was very low because you played at the festival in the hope you’d get played on the radio,” Danielle Haim told Grazia magazine.”It’s fucked up not even to be paid half the same amount. But to be paid a tenth of that amount of money? It was insane.”

The sisters cited their strong bond as a reason they reacted so strongly to learning of the pay gap.

While they did not reveal what festival they were referring to, they’re currently on their Sister, Sister, Sister tour.
