Body Movements

London festival Body Movements has announced SHERELLE, Midland, Shy One, and over 100 more names for its 2022 edition.

Taking place on Saturday, July 30th across various venues in Hackney Wick, the one-day event, which amplifies trans and queer club collectives and communities, will also see the likes of Angel D'lite, Lotic, I. Jordan, Juliana Huxtable, Peach, Powder, Or:la, Princess Julia, Dan Beaumont and festival co-founder Saoirse perform. Check out the full line-up below.

This year, Body Movements have also announced an Apply to Play programme, which invites burgeoning artists to become part of the line-up. Applicants need to record a mix by the end of June, with winners then selected by Saoirse and the bookings team. You can apply here. Pick up tickets for Body Movements here.

Body Movements, the UK’s first queer electronic music festival, was launched in London’s Hackney Wick in October 2021. Helmed by DJ Saoirse and Clayton Wright, and with the help of 20 collectives, and an impressive line-up of DJs, dancers and performers, the sold out event was a celebration of dance music’s queer past, present and future.
