New festival, Body Movements, to celebrate queer club and electronic music culture

16 venues in London's Hackney Wick will host more than 40 artists

A new day-long festival, focused on queer club culture and electronic music, is coming to London later this year.

The inaugural Body Movements will see more than 40 artists play across 16 venues in London's Hackney Wick, with a number of key LGBTQI+ club collectives and promoters behind each venue's line-up. The venue will extend from the daytime into the night, with collectives such as Herrensauna, Maricas, Pxssy Palace, Love Muscle, Bitch, Please! and He. She. They. among those involved.

Body Movements is the project of DJ Saoirse and Little Gay Brother's Clayton Wright. The festival's full line-up will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 9th October. Find more information here.
