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

Body Movements will take place on September 10th, 2021 in Hackney Wick. Pre-sale tickets for the festival go on sale at 10AM on May 27th here
