Leipzig/Germany, Queer Music Festival

April 18 - April 21

QUEER MUSIC FESTIVAL – KEYVISUAL 2024Here is the information about the first edition of the QUEER MUSIC FESTIVAL from April 18 to 21, 2024 in Leipzig/Germany. We would be very pleased to receive your editorial consideration!––––––––QUEER MUSIC FESTIVAL›IDENTITY IS REALITYThe ‘Queer Music Festival’ explicitly shines the spotlight on queer music and artists who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transident or non-binary. Under the motto ‘Identity is reality!’, the scope of the 4-day programme ranges from concerts and club nights, readings and film screenings to art exhibitions and dance classes. The focus is always on celebrating and empowering queer identities, queer bodies and above all queer music!The agenda of the festival is clear: To provide a platform where musicians from the LGBTIQ* community can raise their voices in a safe space in order to share their artistic vision with like-minded people and allies, be loud together in a time when silence is becoming more and more dangerous and be visible in a time when queerness has become the fashion accessory of a privileged bubble, but queer people increasingly have to fear for their safety in public spaces.Organized by BOUYGERHL – Queer Music ArchivePatronage: Tarik TesfuSupported by the Cultural Office of the City of Leipzig––––––––LINE-UP18. – 21.
