Yo! Sissy’s Pansy & Scout

Yo! Sissy is Berlin’s international queer music festival. Entering its third year, the festival has already showcased artists and attracted audience members from over 20 different countries. The mission remains the same: to showcase burgeoning local performers alongside established international acts with a focus on promoting female and trans* identified talent.

This year’s edition of Yo! Sissy will take place on July 28th and 29th at the Columbia Complex in Tempelhof and feature five separate areas for simultaneous performance split between the Columbia Halle and Columbia Theatre facilities. The first Yo! Sissy was the largest festival of its kind to ever take place in Berlin, a city famous for its colourful culture and LGBT inclusivity. Peaches, Cakes da Killa, Crystal Waters, JD Samson, Mykki Blanco, Le1f, Karin Park & Christeene have graced the Yo! Sissy stage and this year brings a new and exciting plethora of talent from around the globe.

Enigmatic French maestro Vitalic brings his audacious maximalism and stylish, off-centre Eurodance to the capital for a electronic work-out, quite the contrast to the in-imitable Planningtorock. Continuously transforming – visually, lyrically, vocally and musically – her eclectic style gives away an abundance of influences, but still always seem to be one step ahead of trend or fashion. Elsewhere, having cultivated a signature and unique presence all his own, American artist Ojay Morgan AKA Zebra Katz will showcase his unique live show to the Yo! Sissy crowd, with music-art collective Chicks On Speed, German duo Gurr and Texan-bred producer Lotic also making appearances.

This year, a new and important element of the festival will be a Marketplace that will host over 20 queer businesses from Berlin and abroad selling food, drinks, clothing, crafts, and other wares. This will take place on Saturday afternoon in the Columbia Halle garden and will be free and open to the public. During this time we will incorporate DJs, performances, artist-run panel discussions, and hands-on workshops hosted in collaboration with Native Instruments. These workshops will provide our audience members with information on equipment, skills, and knowledge to increase their own music production or DJing techniques. We believe this is an important step to further breaking the divide between our audience and performers, which has been an important element of Yo! Sissy since its inception.

YO! SISSY WE SEE YOU!
