Headliners include The Gossip and Honey Dijon, with sets from a diverse selection of established and up-and-coming artists, from drag icons to house musicians to performance artists to rappers, Ladyfag’s curation is spectacularly dynamic. The first wave of performers announced for Friday night includes Jayda G., Octo Octa, Clara 3000, VōX, Katie Rex, Bottoms, and Jacob Meehan, while Saturday night’s lineup includes Mykki Blanco, Violet Chachki, Allie X, Coi Leray, Total Freedom, Michael Magnan, and Mistervacation.

Chicago-born, New York-based Honey Dijon will spin one of her legendary PRIDE sets on Friday night. The vinyl-lover’s sets are known for their strong programming, passion and integrity, fusing the bump of Chicago with more classic New York sounds and other European influences. The art of the mix itself is also very important to Honey as anyone who has witnessed her play can testify about her deft mixing skills and the way she dexterously flows between house or techno with a warm, hypnotic feel.

A month ago, the Gossip announced their first tour in 7 years. LadyLand is thrilled to host the kick-off show of the tour, which also celebrates the 10 years anniversary of the trio’s iconic album ‘Music for Men’. The performance will take place inside the Mirage on Saturday night. 

Ladyfag, the mind behind Holy Mountain, Battle Hymn, 11:11, and Shade, to name a few, has been dubbed “a nightlife sorceress” by the New York Times and “the woman saving New York nightlife” by Paper Magazine. She is known for producing afterparties for some of the most renowned fashion brands in the world, all while helping to keep New York busy dancing. New York City’s “reigning queen of nightlife” (according to Vogue) took the party outside last year for her first festival: LadyLand. This year, she’s bringing it back for two days at NYC World Pride.
