WHOLE 2023 – Edition #5

Taking place in a lakeside industrial park a few hours outside of Berlin, WHOLE Festival seeks to connect queer collectives from all over the globe under one banner of creativity, passion, pleasure, and above all, good music. Over three full days of camping, DJ sets, workshops, art installations, and skinny dipping, the festival brings together a program of dozens of local and international artists, representing the best in electronic music. Techno, house, disco, and everything in between—there’s something for everyone, and all are encouraged to shed their inhibitions and dance the night (and the day, and the next night) away. 

WHOLE began as a collaboration between Berlin collectives Buttons, Pornceptual, and Cocktail D’Amore as a way to expand the local scene into something that could unite queer people the world over. Now welcoming collectives hailing from China to Uganda, passing by Mexico, Brazil and beyond, WHOLE’s vision is to manifest what most festivals only dream of: the creation of a world all its own. 

The fifth–and largest ever–edition of WHOLE Festival will take place at Ferropolis from July 28 – 31, 2023.
