Troye Sivan and Charli XCX will be co-hosting and co-headlining the first annual Go West Fest. Named after the 1979 Village People track “Go West,” the Live Nation-presented festival will take place on June 6 in celebration of Pride week at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. Troye and Charli curated a lineup of LGBTQ+ artists and allies, including Pussy Riot, Dorian Electra, Quay Dash, Leland, Allie X, and others. See the full lineup below.
Go West Fest is slated to feature DJ sets by Baby Uniq, Alima Lee, and K.O. AKA Koala. Junior High—a Los Angeles-based space and quarterly publication dedicated to highlighting marginalized voices—will also be present at the event to showcase emerging local LGBTQ+ artists. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to GLAAD.
Last year, Troye and Charli teamed up on the single “1999,” which received a ’90s-icon-inspired video. Charli’s last album was 2017’s Pop 2, while Troy dropped Bloom in 2018.
