After blessing us with nostalgic hit 1999, Troye Sivan and Charli XCX have teamed up on another epic endeavor.

The two will co-curate and co-host the first annual Go West Fest, which will take place 6 June at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. The festival is part of LA Pride celebrations.

The lineup sounds just as queer as you imagine, including LGBTI artists and allies of the likes of Pussy Riot, Dorian Electra, Quay Dash, Leland and Allie X.

The event, named after the 1979 Village People song Go West, will also donate a portion of the proceeds to GLAAD, as well as local organizations.

Troye Sivan promises ‘a new kind of Pride’

Troye Sivan took to Instagram today to share the news, describing the event as ‘a new kind of Pride festival’.
