This year’s Saturday and Sunday headliners include Kylie Minogue, Janelle Monáe, and Diplo.

Produced by award-winning events and entertainment agency JJLA, this year’s OUTLOUD Music Festival features a stellar lineup of queer entertainers and artists. The weekend’s full lineup of talent includes Doechii, Ashnikko, Noah Cyrus, Trixie Mattel (DJ Set), Keke Palmer, Channel Tres, Yaeji, Big Freedia, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and VINCINT, with exciting sets from emerging artists Snow Wife, Destiny Rogers, Black Polish, Salina EsTitties, Doug Locke, Jimi The Kween, and Zee Machine. OUTLOUD is hosted by personalities Ryan Mitchell, Hannah Rad, Arisce Wanzer, Neverending Nina, and Billy Francesca. The OUTLOUD Music Festival features a second dance music stage in partnership with SUMMERTRAMP, with more performances to be announced.

“We created OUTLOUD as an incubator to support emerging queer artists who gain invaluable exposure alongside some of the most iconic names in music,” said OUTLOUD CEO/Producer Jeff Consoletti of JJLA. “For over twenty years, I have been fortunate to be able to champion these artists through increased visibility both during Pride Month and throughout the year. Our partnership with the City of West Hollywood has been integral to this mission, allowing us to amplify the voices of LGBTQ+ artists and celebrate our community together.”

Created by event producer Consoletti, who saw a desire from LGBTQ+ artists wanting to connect with their communities, OUTLOUD @ WeHo Pride is a celebration of queer music, created for and by queer people, in queer communities. Recognized by Thrillist as one of the summer’s Best Music Festivals happening in the U.S., OUTLOUD has featured hundreds of emerging and established artists over the years. Previous artists OUTLOUD has welcomed to its main stage include Grace Jones, Adam Lambert, Carly Rae Jepsen, Years & Years, Jessie J, Lil’ Kim, Idina Menzel, Jessie Ware, Hayley Kiyoko, and more. 

Since 2022, the OUTLOUD Music Festival has been graciously hosted in the City of West Hollywood, as one of the City’s flagship programs of WeHo Pride Weekend, a partnership that has been truly important to growing the brand.

“West Hollywood is the epicenter of queer culture and entertainment, and we are a proud and vibrant hub where acceptance is embraced and diversity thrives,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor John M. Erickson. “The City of West Hollywood takes immense pride in fostering LGBTQ+ community and joy, and we’re excited to bring people together to celebrate at OUTLOUD and WeHo Pride. Not only will we showcase incredible queer talent, we will also embody the spirit of inclusivity and unity, which is the core of what defines our city.”

The OUTLOUD Music Festival is proud to be a flagship event of the City of West Hollywood’s WeHo Pride Weekend in conjunction with its free programming, including the Street Fair, Pride Parade, Dyke March, Women’s Freedom Festival, WeHo Pride Presents Friday Night @ OUTLOUD, community organization events, and sponsor activations.
