GAYDM “One Love” has announced its initial lineup for the first LGBTQ+ EDM festival in the world, which will be held on Saturday, September 11 in Atlanta.
Taking place at Cellairis Ampitheatre at Lakewood the 11-hour festival will include three stages featuring a stacked lineup of top LGBTQ DJs, including Danny Tenaglia, Pagano, Ralphi Rosario, Boris, Citizen Jane, Samantha Ronson, Dave Aude, Alex Lo, Marti Frieson, Alex Ramos, Oscar Velazquez, Hector Fonseca, Tommy Love, DJ Tatiana, Binomio, Enrico Meloni, and Marco da Silva, with more to be announced. GAYDM “One Love” will offer the largest dance floor in the Southeast with 30,000 sq ft of cryo full-tilt madness.
“There is absolutely nothing like GAYDM “One Love” in the world,” said event organizer Chris Coleman. “It is the first-ever LGBTQ+ EDM festival celebrating the gay community and equality among people. We are bringing all five letters of our alphabet together unifying our voice to affect real social change against the backdrop of incredibly talented DJs from across the globe. Most of us were not here for Stonewall or Woodstock, this is our time to project our voice, as one, for the world to hear.”
GAYDM has partnered with GAGA (Gay Georgia) and Lost-n-Found Youth, two organizations whose efforts are dedicated to serving the LGBTQ+ community in Georgia. GAGA’s mission is to maintain safe locations for the LGBTQ+ community free from persecution, while Lost-n-Found Youth assists homeless LGBTQ+ youth. All profits from the festival will go toward these two incredible organizations.
