From October 7 to 9, 2022 Provincetown will be awash with a queer musical event unlike any other in the country. The second annual Washashore Festival will feature national and local artists that embody the unique landscape of the queer music scene. This year’s festival is expected to be bigger than the last, with three days of unforgettable frivolity.
Washashore will take place across three venues: Provincetown Brewery Co., Crown and Anchor, and the Red Room. Festival goers are encouraged to hop between these three spots to create a unique and catered music experience. Executive Aaron Clayton states that the festival has been created to be an immersive experience for both festival-goers and queer artists alike. Here, everyone can “gather together and celebrate queer expression and artistry” to its fullest.
All about queer talent
“We see the Washashore Festival continuing to reinforce Provincetown’s long-held status as an important haven for queer artists,” states Co-Producer Trevor Pittinger. Washashore was created to serve a new generation that values diversity and inclusivity. This generation’s values can “help carry Provincetown into the future,” a future that this festival seeks to cultivate.
This year, Chicago-raised, Los Angeles-based pop singer JORDY will headline the event. Other artists include CHRISTEENE and her Fukkn Band, Sienna Liggins, And Qya Crystál. A full lineup and more details are available on the official festival website.
The event is 21+, with three-day passes ranging from $135.00 to $190.00.
