Music, art, fun and visibility are the central themes of QueerCity. During this edition we want to focus on queer music performances and DJs! We are going to bring the nightlife to Pakhuis de Zwijger. The DJs will bring all kinds of tunes from all over the world. With this we want to turn the current mainstream music industry upside down and give a stage to queers, trans persons and non-binary persons to share their tunes with us.
