Body Movements Festival 2022

Body Movements has announced the collectives and stages taking part in the summer 2022 festival, which will take place across Hackney Wick, London, on 30th July. 

Launched last year by producer and DJ Saoirse Ryan and Clayton Wright of LGBTQI+ collective Little Gay Brother, the day-night event is focused on "celebrating the full-spectrum of queer club culture" over 16 indoor and outdoor venues. 

"Year one showed us queer utopias exist. Year two is about making even more noise to celebrate the diverse talent and people that make this clubbing community so exciting and important," said Wright. 

"In year one, Body Movements captivated the stunning beauty and importance of the queer grass-roots movement taking up space, a melting pot of sounds, cultures, identities, dancers, looks and power,” added Saoirse.

A D O N I S, Big Dyke Energy, B*tch Please!, Boudica, Chapter 10, Daytimers, Fèmmme Fraîche, Fiasco!, Herrensauna, He.She.They, High Hoops, HTBX London, Hungama, Inferno, Jay Jay Revlon Vogue Workshop, Jungle Kitty, Kiss Me Again, Koodeta, Let's Have A Kiki, Love Muscle, MARICAS, Misery, Nite Dykez, Pxssy Palace, Queer House Party, Lezzer Quest, Sippin' T, TechnoMate, and trUst are confirmed partners. Crews hail from the UK capital, Manchester, Leeds, Berlin, Barcelona and India, among other locations. 

Ahead of the main event, a series of workshops and panels will take place, with the aim of supporting the festival and amplifying the community at its core. Details on this aspect are still to be announced, with the full festival line-up also waiting to be unveiled. Ticket pre-registration is open, with pre-sale on 2nd March at 10AM UK time, and general sale the following day.
