NO FEAR IT’S QUEER
Lunchbox Candy presents ‘The Ket Gala’ – 20 hours of anarchy. A playground for the weird and wonderful celebrating everything you ever wanted to be. Category is QUEER-CORE and you’re invited to fuck the cis-tem, COCKtail in hand as we collectively lose our minds to find ourselves. Are you trash or treasure? Cunt or couture? Punk or princess? Did you actually do it yourself? Don’t tell us, show us July 22nd for the only Pride event worth douching for. Giddy up!
We’re bringing together a fabulous array of hosts, DJs and performers to facilitate your journey into launching your authentic being forward and having you dance in wild abandon until the bitter end, outfit intact (or not!)
Welcoming a colorful and super diverse line-up including London-based multidisciplinary artist, Josh Quinton, who along with their DJ partner Andilamour are bringing their outrageously camp, queer punk and deranged attitude and sounds to THE CANDY FLIP – it’s going to be insane! Get ready!
Elsewhere, all the way from Sydney we have Estée Louder – with a name like that, they were instantly adopted by our Lunchbox Candy family. Needless to say, their DJ skills are top notch too as they run CONTROL (club night and podcast series) – ‘creating a space to suspend the reality of patriarchal constraints, encouraging the exorcism of trapped energy and emotion’
Newcomers Katerinha and NJERI will inaugurate The Ket Gala in the garden starting at 16:00h. Dress up, look sharp and come early to catch their energetic blend of afro-house, garage, breaks, house and eclectic club sounds from the global South – these 2 will have you bouncing within the first hour.
Our resident and co-founder Adam Munnings will open our main dancefloor indoors at 22:00 – will their alter ego Ja Mum make an appearance? We’ll have to wait and see. One thing’s for sure though – they will be packing in a punch, opening our main space and setting up the mood for the night to unfold.
Following Adam, we have another co-founder and resident DJ, Elninodiablo who along with their inner child sista, Sudha Kheterpal will deliver their blend of high-octane sounds with live percussion to uplift you in euphoric highs and have you screaming for more. Between them these 2 have 50 years of experience rocking dancefloors around the world and still look like children, what’s their secret?
Continuing the festivities – from St Petersburg we are super excited to present Kirill Shapavalov taking on the baton in the DJ booth at 6am. Their inimitable style oozing sexual, carnal passion and performing with elegance and panache already had us mesmerized and wanting for more. Get ready to rip your clothes off.
Last but not least our larger-than-life fierce door-whore Mark Gilleran, would have finished their duties on the door and transformed into their alter ego, DJ Petite at 9am to close The Ket Gala in true Lunchbox Candy style – with a wonderfully deranged, upbeat, turbo energized set to wave goodbye to the ones last standing.
Long blurb we know, but we need to give dues where it’s needed – as always, our beautiful hosts, performers and fire-starters will be celebrating and taking care of YOU throughout the night – expect impromptu next-level performances that literally can bring you down to your knees. Our all-star line-up features – Phoenix, Nancy Grrrl, Scott Bunny, Gutter Gucci, Alvin Collantes, Dornika and Rainer Sellien.
DO NOT MISS out The Ket Gala Special Market – starting at 16:00h on the raised wooden platform in the garden – here you will find the super ltd edition, sought-after Lunchbox Candy posters, and eye-popping merchandise you will be salivating over. There will also be vintage clothing, jewelry and photo books all in the spirit of LbC.
Asta la vista baby – we have so much to organise for your pleasure, with pleasure
See you on The Ket Gala Carpet – you better bring it !!!
Your gender bending, freedom lending, love bursting excuse to let loose
Let’s make love
