2022 brings the second edition of legendary international go drag! festival Berlin. Artistic directors Bridge Markland, Nancy Lund and Olive Baldwin are celebrating women, trans, and non-binary artists with a nine day programme featuring international guests, including Zoe Gudović from the Magdalena Project network, and Berlin based performers. From 1 - 9 of October the festival takes place in different venues across Berlin.
go drag! is an international drag festival in Berlin, across several venues with many styles of events. It celebrates Drag Kings, Quings, Queens, and many corners of the world of drag performance. At go drag! we will celebrate artists who are often under-represented on drag stages and in mainstream media. It is a festival made by and for women, trans, and non-binary artists. We celebrate a wide range of performers of different ages, backgrounds, and styles.
go drag! 2022 marks the 20 year anniversary of the original go drag! festival, organised and curated in 2002 by Bridge Markland and Diane Torr. The festival was as politically motivated and necessary then as it is now. Especially with the recent popularisation of Drag Queens on TV, it is important that voices from all across the queer community are represented and heard.
