Entering its 29th year as the largest girl party music festival in the world, The Dinah is back in 2019 with the five-day event taking place in Palm Springs, California on April 3-7. The event will include massive pool parties with world famous DJs and go-go dancers, red carpet events with nationally renowned musical performances, meet and greets with your favorite celesbians, and so much more.
Mariah Hanson founded world famous Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend in 1991 with the intention of creating a safe space for women and women-identified individuals to celebrate, unite, and empower each other. Since then, the event has grown to be considered the largest lesbian event in the world. Hanson has not only carried on her mission with an event once a year, but has used the Dinah to spread this message all year long through her important work with organizations such as The HRC, National Center for Lesbian Rights, and GLAAD. Giving back to the community is at the core of The Dinah.
Hanson also has a keen ear for the best musical acts that appeal to the female listener. From 2018 headliner Jessie Reyez, whose short film The Gatekeeper, and song of the same title are considered precursors to the #metoo movement and Madame Gandhi’s “Future is Female” to past acts such as Lady Gaga, Kesha, and Katy Perry, festival-goers know they’re always in for a great show! There’s a great lineup in store for 2019 with more news coming soon!
