Pride Month may be long over, but Christina Aguilera is ready to keep the party going this September.
On Friday (Aug. 20), the pop superstar was announced as the headlining performer at LadyLand 2021, LadyFag’s now-annual queer music festival held in Brooklyn. Chairlift co-founder Caroline Polachek will also perform at the Brooklyn Mirage on Sept. 11, with other LGBTS artists and allies set to take the stage, including Drag Race season 10 winner Aquaria, Skin, Nina Sky, La Goony Chonga and more.
LadyLand 2021 will be Aguilera’s first performance in New York City since her headlining shows at Radio City Music Hall in 2018 for her Liberation World Tour. The star recently made her return to performing live following the pandemic with two shows at the Hollywood Bowl, wherein she reinvented many of her biggest hits with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. “It was a performance of a lifetime,” she told Billboard of the shows. “It was the performance I waited my whole life to do for so many creative purposes.”
The annual festival, curated by New York nightlife icon Ladyfag, returns for the first time since 2019, where Russian feminist collective Pussy Riot offered up a rare headlining set, accompanied by performances from stars like DJ Honey Dijon, Drag Race season 11 winner Yvie Oddly and more. This year’s festival will require all attendees to provide proof of full vaccination completed at least two weeks before the event.
LadyLand 2021 will take place at the Brooklyn Mirage on Sept. 11, from 7:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. Tickets go on sale today (Aug. 20) starting at 4 p.m. ET here.
