A ‘dissident’ is a freethinker, a rebel, someone who subverts the norm. In that vein, Dissident is a party series that brings something fresh to Berlin’s queer clubbing space, with a carefully curated music programme that keeps contrast and new musical experience at its core. With roots in DIY spaces, over the last two years Dissident has built a dedicated community, centering queers, femmes and vintage sounds with an appreciation for the history of dance music, queer culture and how they overlap.
