The 21+ music and arts festival is the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, and partygoers can look forward to fresh hyper-local artists, drag performers, and musicians in addition to national sensations. Past headliners include Kim Petras and Iggy Azalea.

QPF is presented by Burgess Hall Nightlife Group, the enterprise run by husbands Joey Burgess and Murf Hall, who regular readers may recognize as the owners of Elliott Bay Book Company, The Cuff Complex, Queer/Bar, and other Capitol Hill hotspots.

"QPF returns this summer bigger and better than ever," said Burgess in a press release. "We're lighting up our stages with some of the hottest artists from around the world, and we've expanded our overall footprint to include a larger stage, bigger screens, and more food and beverage offerings."

Other performances to look for at Queer/Pride include Seattle's hometown heroine and Queer/Bar stage star Bosco and current Season 15 Drag Race queens Sasha Colby, Luxx Noir London, and Mistress Isabelle Brooks.
