WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA- A truly vibrant rave of technicolour love and diversity – WEHO Pride’s Outloud Fest proved yet again why it’s an absolute must-attend for every self-respecting music fan and supporter of the LGBTQ community. This isn’t just a party. It’s a high-voltage celebration, radiating love, respect, and inclusivity from every sequined corner of the festival ground. The energy? Off the charts. The moment you cross that threshold, you’re enveloped in a euphoria that hums through the entire weekend.
Outloud Fest was a mosh pit of revelry, spread across two stages. The Main Stage was a frenzied hub of artists sending pulses racing, while the Summer Tramp Stage, curated by Andrés Rigal, delivered on its promise as a “Pansexual Paradise of Decadence and Delight”. And how! It was like walking into a hedonistic daydream, thumping with rhythm, alive with rainbow-hued passion and exuding an intoxicatingly rich representation of the LGBTQ lifestyle.
The line-up was eclectic as hell. A pulsating mix of recording artists, DJs, and drag queens injected electrifying adrenaline into the crowd, lighting up faces and firing up spirits. It was a beautiful spectacle, a kaleidoscope of different identities, genres, and expressions showcasing the full spectrum of the LGBTQ community.
The Summer Tramp Stage was a hotbed of talent with the likes of Mike Taylor, Biianco and Gia Woods. Woods served up a healthy dose of earworm pop tunes while Biianco added a slice of avant-garde pop to the sonic feast. Mike Taylor, though, was the one who really turned up the dial with a powerhouse performance that left us gasping for breath and begging for more.
Over at the Main Stage, it was a non-stop riot of groovy tunes and shimmy-worthy performances. DJs like Venessa Michael and Yung Bae spun magic with their beats, sending the crowd into hip-shaking frenzy. And let’s not forget the drag performances – Jessica Wild had everyone’s feathers ruffled with her dazzling display of unabashed glamour and sass. This wasn’t just a gig. No, it was a jubilant rally of self-expression and diversity.
Outloud Fest, a hallmark of WEHO Pride, was an intoxicating manifestation of freedom and love, transcending the notion of an ordinary event to embody a pulsating ethos. Unrestrained and all-embracing, it offered a vibrant and downright thrilling playground for every attendee, irrespective of their sexual orientation or identity. From pulsing beats to dancing bodies, the festival unfolded as an exuberant testament to the art of celebration, intricately weaving a tapestry of joy and representation. The festival was an unapologetic playground, setting hearts on fire and letting passions run wild in a space that embodied Pride in its purest, most exhilarating form. Outloud Fest wasn’t just a festival; it was an all-out riotous party that elevated the very spirit of Pride to dizzying, unforgettable heights.
