This year the kiki is bigger and better than ever.

BUSHWIG, the world’s largest drag and queer music festival, returns for its 7th annual event at The Knockdown Center (52-19 Flushing Ave) on Saturday, September 8 (1 PM–2AM) and Sunday, September 9th (1–11PM). Tickets on sale here.

Sponsored by Lyft, headliners include Sasha Velour, Alaska Thunderf**k, Lady Bunny and mother of the house: Horrorchata.

Founded by Brooklyn artists Horrorchata and Babes Trust, BUSHWIG has garnered an international audience — including shows in Los Angeles and Berlin — featuring curated lineups with the most well-respected names in the drag community.


The festival is an inclusive event and takes great pride in being a celebration of anyone for everyone. BUSHWIG functions first and foremost as a community event, giving all a part of the stage and an opportunity to share their talents with queer people from around the world. BUSHWIG has been known to feature drag artists before they hit international super stardom including Aquaria, Aja, Sasha Velour and more.

In the words of RuPaul, “We’re all born naked and the rest is drag.” So come on out to BUSHWIG and show off your best self.
