LGBTQ+ music festival Gaytimes has announced the line-up for its 2022 edition, which is set to take place over three days in mid-February.
Among the 60 acts that have been announced include R&B singer Ngaiire, electro-pop duo Cry Club and soul singer Kee’ahn. They join the likes of punk band SCABZ, garage-rock band Pinch Points, rapper Hoodzy, electronic duo Sumner and dance trio Haiku Hands. The festival will also feature drag performers and cabaret artists as part of its festivities.
The Gaytimes festival was last held in February 2020, a matter of weeks before the global shutdown spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic. In December of that year, the organisers announced that Gaytimes would not go ahead in 2021, deeming it “not feasible or responsible to plan a full scale, multi-day, multi-stage regional camping music and arts festival” at the time.
The festival confirmed its return in October 2021, with tickets selling out well before any of the artists were announced. This year’s edition will take place in Gilwell Park, located near the town of Gembrook in the eastern Dandenong Ranges of Victoria’s Yarra Valley.
The 2022 Gaytimes Festival will commence on February 18, concluding on February 20.
