Yo! Sissy

The international Berlin festival putting queer music centre stage

Words By Alex Rennie

Date: 29/07/16 and 30/07/16
Venue: 29/07 – Musik & Frieden & 30/07 – Postbahnhof
Time: 21:00

If you’re on the hunt for a proper glut of hedonism and general good times, then stop searching now – this weekend plays host to YO! Sissy, one of the city’s most revered queer celebrations. Staggered over Friday and Saturday, countless revellers will be treated to the 40+ live acts as well as DJs and performers that are set to grace the stages of Musik & Frieden and Postbahnhof.

Representing the US, California’s queer hip-hop trailblazer Mykki Blanco heads up the bill with his own unique brand of laconic beats and haunting lyricism. On a slightly lighter tip, Swedish–Norwegian songstress Karin Park brings her delectably Nordic synthpop to the fore too. Truly international and veritably eclectic, there’s no better place to mingle with Berlin’s most vibrant drag kings and queens.
