Trixie Mattel, Alaska, more RuPaul's Drag Race stars join 2021 Digital Drag Fest lineup
EW exclusively reveals that Jinkx Monsoon, Denali, Monét X Change, Jujubee, Latrice Royale, and more Drag Race queens will perform at this year's Digital Drag Fest.
The RuPaul's Drag Race dolls are coming back, back, back again for the 2021 Digital Drag Fest, and EW has the exclusive reveal of this year's lineup.
As the coronavirus pandemic keeps performances spaces shuttered well into the year, drag queens from around the world will unite this summer for the second annual Digital Drag Fest event presented by Producer Entertainment Group. This year's slate — tickets for which go on sale at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT on the Sessions Live site) includes performances by RuPaul's Drag Race personalities like Trixie Mattel, Alaska, Jinkx Monsoon, Jujubee, Latrice Royale, Ginger Minj, Monét X Change, Sharon Needles, Manila Luzon, Miz Cracker, Jan, Jackie Cox, and Nicky Doll.
RuPaul's Drag Race season 13 alums Denali, Tina Burner, and Utica will also appear for their first major festival gigs after they competed earlier this year across one of the longest seasons in Drag Race herstory.
Queens from international Drag Race spinoffs set to make their Digital Drag Fest mark include Abby OMG and Sederginne from Drag Race Holland, Cheryl Hole and Divina De Campo from RuPaul's Drag Race UK, and Jimbo from Canada's Drag Race, while drag legends Jackie Beat and Sherry Vine are confirmed to perform a joint set, too.
Digital Drag Fest's 2021's slate features individual 45-60-minute shows from each queen, ranging from comedy and singing to lip-syncing and even dramatic performances. Tickets will be limited to keep audience sizes intimate and allow for fan interactions with the queens — potentially including prizes and giveaways.
"While we are well on our way to getting back to a sense of normalcy, traveling to see your favorite entertainer and gathering in person to see a show is still limited," Alaska said in a statement. "Luckily, through the miracle of technology, we can bring together an audience from all over the world, and connect through our love of drag, music, and creativity."
Added Jujubee: "Digital Drag Fest 2021 is so important right now, because it brings your favorite drag artists right to your living room. At-home entertainment is crucial at a time where people yearn for moments of joy. Digital Drag Fest 2021 does just that; it spreads joy! I call it, 'drag magic!'"
Digital Drag Fest 2021 runs over two weekends, from May 21-23 and May 28-30. See the full lineup and timing schedule below. Tickets go on sale later today at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT on Sessions Live.
