Flesh has launched the UK’s first ever LQBTQIA+ electronic music and camping festival which will highlight underrepresented voices in a two-day celebration of house and techno music.
The brand new Flesh Queer Festival has dropped exciting details of its bank holiday weekend event and location, with a lineup that champions diversity.
The festival will take place on 28th and 29th May 2022 at Springfield Farm in St Albans – about 25 minutes from central London. Showcasing the best of up-and-coming House and Techno DJs, Flesh invites LGBTQIA+ individuals, their friends and allies to party the days and nights away.
The impressive two-day lineup, of which 100% of the acts will be made up of underrepresented artists covering a spectrum of gender minorities and ethnicities, features artists including Alisha Mirza, Raven, Lady Shaka, Jaguar, SPFDJ, object blue and more, see the full programme below.
But music isn’t the only thing on offer across the event. Riposte London, an art collective showcasing artists and events within the LGBTQIA+ community, will be hosting a sober tent for people to relax, socialise and partake in panels, booze-free.
Flesh is also inviting emerging QTIPOC artists to apply for scholarships with the London Sound Academy, which will offer winners ongoing mentorship and the chance to perform at the festival in May. You can apply here until 3rd February 2022.
