I was in Berlin recently and got to chatting with a new friend who turned me on to this awesome music festival (YO! SISSY) that's running a Kickstarter right now to raise funds for its second edition next summer.

YO! SISSY is Germany's first international queer music festival whose first edition took place this past summer. Spread out over 3 days and 3 venues, YO! SISSY featured took place this past summer over the course of 3 days, 3 different venues, and featured over 50 acts from 15 different countries. Headliners included Peaches, Crystal Waters, JD Samson, CHRISTEENE, The Hidden Cameras, Cakes da Killa, Hi-Fashion, Hard Ton, and many more.

YO! SISSY 2016 will take place July 29 - 31. The festival's goal is to showcase upcoming local talent with established international acts. YO! SISSY focuses on promoting diversity within its performers, specifically female and trans* identified artists.

Donations will directly support queer artists from all over the world, to put together and pay a small team of staff in order to manage the basic operations of the festival, and ideally to incorporate more acts and support more artists and lower ticket prices!

There are some really cool perks for YO! SISSY's Kickstarter, so if you want to get involved and have some spare change just lying around, you should donate it to this awesome campaign! Get all the details HERE.
