Adonis has kept its DIY aesthetic since beginning in a small north London warehouse in 2017.

The collective takes over Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer to throw the official after-party for London Queer Soundsystem Day (L.Q.S.D)Meltdown’s free outdoor sound system event celebrating Chaka Khan’s musical contribution to queer dance floors over the past three decades.

Peng Femme Jam – Sunday 23rd June, 7:45pm

Make some music with the Peng Femme Jam, where women and non-binary musicians are given the spotlight to perform, jam and be their full selves.

The jam culture in London is buzzing. But jams, much like the wider music-industry, are often male-dominated.

Peng Femme Jam creates an inclusive and nurturing space for women, queer and trans global majority musicians to play together, nurturing their creativity and encouraging them to reach their potential as artists and musicians.

Their jams are open to all, but only people who identify as women or non-binary are paid and booked to play as part of the house band or to host an event.

Bring an instrument and join in with the open jam section of the night and take the chance to shine on stage alongside the house band and fellow peng musicians. Audience members of all backgrounds, instruments and genres are welcome to take part.

Date: Sunday 23rd June
