A new festival showcasing Auckland’s experimental and underground LGBTQIA musicians has been announced titled LOUD and PROUD, happening at the super city's subterranean music hub Audio Foundation in mid-February. Organised by Ary Jansen, Alexandra Stone and Aaliyah Zionov, the festival presents a hand-picked lineup of "Auckland’s best experimental, underground, and “out-there” LGBTQIA musicians, across the spectrums of gender, sexuality, and genre." Attendees can look forward to experiencing "handmade analogue instruments, screeching guitars, soulful waiata, balloon-infused pop bangers, crushing drones, and more." We reckon the festival looks amazing, here's the details...

Press release:

A showcase of Auckland’s experimental and underground LGBTQIA musicians. Auckland’s experimental music scene is rich with diverse performers that have long been disconnected from the mainstream queer community due to the experimental nature of their art. We hope to showcase the best queer performers in the experimental music and noise category so that they may no longer be sidelined.

Queer music is as fluid and diverse as the community it comes from. Queer and trans people have been at the forefront of so many burgeoning musical movements across history, from disco to rock & roll, to experimental harsh noise. Many of our most forward-thinking queer musicians, however, find themselves, unfortunately, sidelined from two directions – on the one hand for their identity, and on the other hand for the uncompromising nature of their art. Please join us for an evening celebrating the diversity and creativity of Auckland’s queer music scene at our city’s premier location for sonic exploration – Audio Foundation.

We are showcasing a hand-picked selection of Auckland’s best experimental, underground, and “out-there” LGBTQIA musicians, across the spectrums of gender, sexuality, and genre.

Expect handmade analogue instruments, screeching guitars, soulful waiata, balloon-infused pop bangers, crushing drones, and more. Anything goes in this experimental free for all, and we can’t wait to blow you away.
