From romance to quirk, a programme across SchwuZ's Kathedrale, Bunker, and Salon stages offers it all.
Lecken, the Berlin queer collective championing sex-positive, femme-forward spaces, take over an entire floor with residents S Ruston, KILLA, PAARTANZ, and Carmen 16.
PAARTANZ is a weaver of sounds, who plays and composes music for instruments, moving bodies, and electronic machines. He crafts music with a strong focus on improvisation.
S Ruston cut her teeth in the Bristol bass scene in the early 2000s. Playing anything that’s jackin’, pumpin’, voguey, UK, ravey, fast, or slow, she knows what you need and she’ll give it to you good.
Raised on a straight diet of beats and swag, KILLA is a vinyl-only DJ whose sets bounce through groovy techno, 90s house gems, and contemporary jacking tunes.
Carmen 16 is a member of Berlin’s queer, sex-positive, femme-forward collective Lecken. A DJ who loves to dance, his club sensibilities lean on 4-to-the-floor techno, but can veer off in any musical direction.
