Body Movements music festival returns to London in July 2022

Here’s something to look forward to: The Body Movements Festival returns to east London for a second dance music explosion in 2022. A colossal celebration of the queer community featuring LGBTQI + nightclub collectives from across the country, the This year’s edition will take place on Saturday, July 30, at the previous festival location in Hackney Wick.

Tickets and lineup information for this year’s event have yet to be announced, but if the latest edition is to go, it will be a good one (trust us, three members of the Time editorial team Out can confirm that the vibrations were impeccable).

Last year, the sold-out festival took up 16 canal-side venues in Hackney Wick, turning the whole of Queens Yard into one huge party tinged with technicality. More than 20 musical collectives were involved, including Adonis, Queer House Party, Big Dyke Energy, Harpies and Pxssy Palace, and a stellar line-up of artists like Octo Octa, Saoirse, Giedon, Eris Drew and Julianna Huxtable kept people dancing for hours. Once the festival was over, the fun continued with a multitude of afters organized in and around the region. Hoping that 2022 is just as good.

Body Movements was crowned “Best New Event” by Time Out London at our 2021 “Best of the City” awards for showing how London’s queer community makes a huge contribution to the city’s culture.
