The Palm Springs, California-based all girl party and music festival will again take place over the span of 5-days (March 30 through April 3, 2016) at the Hilton Hotel, the PS Convention Center and Zelda’s Nightclub.
Celebrating 26 years as the largest lesbian event in the world, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend delivers yet again another roof-raising celebration with a steamin’ hot lineup that will most definitely blow the lid off the sunny oasis!
“We have put together the most exciting Dinah line up ever. If I could only pick one Dinah to attend, it would be this year. I’m really happy how things came together. Everyone we asked said yes, and as a result we have the most star-studded, talented Dinah ever! 26 years and we’re better than ever, thanks to our customers and to the amazing talent who see this event as a must do. It’s going to be a supreme year,” says Mariah Hanson, founder and promoter of The Dinah.
The stellar entertainment roster is led by a strong and diverse presence of kick-ass female artists including two-time Grammy nominee Elle King, Orange is the New Black stars DJ Taryn Manning and comedian Lea DeLaria, celebrity DJs Samantha Ronson, L Word iconic star, Kate Moennig & UH HUH HER’s lead singer Camila Grey(who together form The X-Names), international top model Madison Paige, and one of the most exciting figures of today’s rap scene, Angel Haze.
They’ll be joined by pop newcomer JoLivi and the all-female power pop/punk band and The Real L Word Season 3 cast members, Hunter Valentine who will perform their farewell show – their scheduled last stop – to thank the fans for one hell of an amazing ride.
If that weren’t hot enough, did we mention the “Hot as L” party, one of the Dinah Shore Weekend’s signature events?
Bringing back the magic of Showtime’s hugely popular lesbian drama series and reality TV show, The L Word & The Real L Word, “Hot as L” will feature some of our community’s most beloved and popular stars including Elizabeth Keener, Clementine Ford and Tracy Reyerson.
It will be a weekend of high-energy performances and premieres whether singing in front of a mic or spinning records behind the turntables. World famous cover girl and super model Madison Paige is set to debut her music career at the epic lesbian event this spring.
This year the Dinah is putting an extra focus on trail-blazing female DJs with a diverse group of high-profile talent all bringing something different to the decks.
Taryn Manning, international DJ, musician and star of the Netflix hit original series Orange is the New Black. is undeniably a go-to favorite of the entertainment industry. Whether on screen, behind a mic or putting the needle on the record or on a piece of fabric, this triple threat does it all and does it impressively well.
With an exceptional ear for music, DJ Taryn Manning has emerged as the club scene’s golden child. Manning has booked gigs including high profiled events such as House of Hype’s Sundance and Coachella parties, Rock The Vote Friends & Family Grammy Party, and Richard Bransons Rock The Casbah, to name a few.
Joining her are Camila Grey and Kate Moennig slated to bring their trademark tomboyish style, sexy swagger and killer turntables to the Dinah, adding their names to an already phenomenal 2016 Entertainment line-up. This will mark the first time the beloved ladies who together form The X-Names, will team up to showcase their spinning skills.
What started as “dabbling” for this electrifying pair quickly spiraled into a DJ partnership that has been successful beyond anything they both could have ever imagined.
Now together X-Names – who spin a blend of Indy, Deep House, Darkwave, Nuwave, Nowave, Electro, Disco, Hip-Hop, 70’s and 80’s – travel the world to play a variety of clubs and parties entertaining A-List clients such Stella McCartney and Amour Vert, to name a few.
These community icons are about to pack the Dinah dance floor with high voltage vibes taking the epic all-girl party to a whole new zenith.
The five-day world-renown weekend is already making a lot of noise and is well on its way to be the most EPIC Dinah ever … you’d never seen anything like it yet!
Celebrities confirmed to be attending also include Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim, Bridget McManus, Chef K, Erika Ringor, Haviland Stillwell and Ilea Matthews.
