Aluna announces Noir Fever New Orleans to celebrate the Black, LGTBQ+ origins of dance music with KAYTRANADA, TSHA, and more
Aluna is teaming up with Pollen Presents for Noir Fever New Orleans, an event that will feature an all-Black lineup of dance/electronic artists, a marketplace for Black-owned brands, a speakers series, and more. The three-day experience will take place from May 27 – 30, 2022, with performances from KAYTRANADA, Channel Tres, TSHA, Jayda G, Derrick Carter, Kevin Saunderson, and more. In addition to celebrating Black artists, the event will also honor the LGBTQ+ community’s influence on the genre.
Noir Fever is also the name of Aluna’s radio show on SiriusXM, which is a stronghold for her curatorial excellence that serves a platform for both rising and established artists. Speaking on Noir Fever New Orleans in an official release, Aluna stated, “This unique experience of honoring dance music’s heritage and getting a taste of what’s to come will reignite a much-needed connection back to what dance music is about—creating a place where people from all different communities can come together and dance their hearts out while feeling free to be themselves.”
Tickets are available here.
