Our Scene - Activism in dance : using dance music to bring change with GIDEÖN & Guillaume Bleret

On Saturday, we will focus on the LGBTQ+ communities within nightlife and the music event industry. 

In western Europe, club culture has embraced queer identities more than ever. The legacy of the LGBTQ+ community in today’s music scene is fully acknowledged and collaborations between queer collectives and mainstream venues/institutions are becoming commonplace. 

But how do queer promoters navigate today’s music industry? What are their struggles? Where is the political battle located when there is a growing mainstream acceptance? How do they conciliate their need for economic sustainability with their political engagement? 

In this conversation between GIDEÖN (Adonis, Block9) and Guillaume Bléret (Gay Haze) we will explore the themes linked to this subject.
