Body Movements Festival has announced the crews set to play its third instalment across 16 of the various indoor and outdoor venues of Hackney Wick in late July.

The summer festival follows a pivotal takeover for the party’s winder edition at Printworks, once more inviting an abundance of various LGBTQI+ crews from underground dance music across the UK and Europe.

According to a press release, the 2023 summer edition will also “make space of three brand new spaces in the Hackney Wick playground, each with a distinct character and personality. This includes a brand new outdoor area, making a plethora of backdrops hosting this year’s revered crews.”
