Queer Electronic Dance Music Festival Hits East London

Queer Electronic Dance Music Festival Hits East London This Weekend

The Body Movements Festival brings the LGBTQ+ club culture and EDM music to Hackney Wick this Saturday with plenty of parties and events.

The new queer electronic dance music festival Body Movements takes place this Saturday, October 9, in East London’s Hackney Wick. The festival will feature over 40 queer, nonbinary, and trans artists alongside party organizers from the local and international LGBTQ+ club culture scene in over 16 spaces for the one-day, one-night event. The after-events promise to let attendees party all night long as well.



“The queer clubbing scene has always been renowned for some of the best parties to ever exist,” Saoirse Ryan, Body Movements’ co-founder and music director, said in a statement. “Body Movements wants to give prominence to those artists, parties, and clubbers by bringing them all together and serving up a truly unique festival for the UK.”

“It’s about solidarity, celebrating each other’s subculture, and connecting with people and parties that you may have never experienced before,” co-founder Clayton Wright said. “Everyone involved is pushing boundaries and creating spaces that are hugely important to our LGBTQI+ community. It’s queer clubbing at its finest.”

The lineup promises an exciting day and night of festivities. Harpies, the body-inclusive strip club, and Adonis, the queer techno dance party, will be taking part, as well as the gay rave Chapter 10.



The Body Movements Festival takes place this Saturday, October 9, in Hackney Wick. Tickets are still available through Resident Advisor.
