The sexiest queer girl party of the year just released the sexiest line-up of performers. The Dinah will be back for its 31st year and will be located in Palm Springs at The Margaritaville from Wednesday, September 21 to Sunday, September 25. Headlining acts include Fletcher, Haviah Mighty, Cassidy King, IV4, Zolita, IV Jay, Siena Liggins and 80s music iconic superstar, Taylor Dayne, offering a palette of incredibly talented female pop singers, rising artists, as well as new queer talent, all poised to make a major impact in 2022 and beyond.
Headlining Friday night is 80s pop icon Taylor Dayne who is exclusively bringing her full band to put on a rare and unique show for Dinah revelers. The groundbreaking debut single “Tell It to My Heart” turned her into an overnight star in 1987. She followed the smash hit with 17 Top 20 singles including Number Ones “Love Will Lead You Back” “Prove Your Love” and “I’ll always Love You.” Haviah Mighty will co-headlines Friday night’s Black and White Ball, joining the ranks of Lady Gaga, Bebe Rexha, Iggy Azalea and Lizzo. Haviah Mighty is the first hip-hop artist and the first Black woman to win the Polaris Music Prize for her break-out album 13th floor, which has been named the “Best Canadian Album of the Year”.
Headlining Saturday night is pop sensation FLETCHER. She broke onto the scene with her single “Undrunk” and has taken the music industry by storm ever since. FLETCHER continued her triumphant run with recent singles “girls girls girls” — a bold reimagining of Katy Perry’s iconic “I Kissed a Girl” (released with Perry’s early stamp of approval) — and “Cherry” featuring trailblazing pop star Hayley Kiyoko. Her new single “Her Body Is Bible” is out now and FLETCHER will release her debut album Girl Of My Dreams on September 16th on Capitol Records. She was also nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist and landed on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2022. FLETCHER’s music has amassed over one billion streams worldwide.
The Dina’s iconic pool parties will be headlined by Zolita, IV4, Cassidy King, and Siena Liggins.
Zolita (a friend of GO!) is known for pairing her multi-dimensional songwriting with beautiful, self-directed music videos, earning her multiple viral successes that include singles “Explosion,” “Holy” and last September’s hit “Somebody I F*cked Once.” IV Jay makes her Dinah debut on Friday at the Girl Spot Pool Party. At just 18 years old, R&B singer/songwriter, IV Jay just released her EP IV solidifying her place as an artist to watch. Singer-songwriter Cassidy King has successfully built up her reputation as a solo artist with her singles “professional Smiler” and “Wasted”. Last but not least, Siena Liggins went from a behind-the-scenes songwriter to one of Billboard’s Top Ten new LGBTQ artists of the year. Ms. Out Tonight, the singer’s debut album serves as a seminar on representing queer sexuality in music.
“These are the galvanizing queer voices to watch long after The Dinah is a wrap. They are part of a new generation of queer young artists who are determined to change the long-held stereotypes of this industry” says Mariah Hanson, founder and producer of The Dinah. “I’m proud to have put together such incredible line up of marquee talent and community icons. We can’t get enough of these exhilarating female artists, and neither will you!”
