Mark Batchelor and I drove an Enterprise van up to Springfield Farm in St Albans this morning, to set up the MU presence at Flesh Festival, the UK’s first queer LGBTQ+ electronic music & camping festival. The weekend event, being sponsored by the Musicians’ Union, is specifically pioneering festival line up diversity.
The two-day event features headline DJs including Ellen Allien, VTSS, LSDXOXO, Rebekah, object blue, Jaguar, Syreeta, Hyperaktivist and Juliana Huxtable. Plus queer London artists such as Wax Wings, allyXPRESS, Hannah Holland, Nadine Noor, Shay Malt, Angel D’Lite, S/HE, Ifeoluwa, Aisha Mirza, J.Aria, Boudica, Pxssy Palace, and Big Dyke Energy.
We were blessed with welcome early summer sunshine, although the breeze made erecting our gazebo and banners a challenge for a while!
Our thanks to festival organiser and artists Samantha Togni for her help and support.
