When Producer Entertainment Group announced their first-ever online performance series, Digital Drag Fest 2020, would take place on Stageit over the next two weeks, they were immediately overwhelmed by fans' response -- within 48 hours, many of the lineup's shows had been sold out. So, as a response, PEG is making their new online festival even bigger than before.
On Monday (March 23), PEG announced that they had added over 40 more artists, drag queens and otherwise, to their growing lineup of talent for Digital Drag Fest. Among that group are current and former Drag Race & Drag Rrace UK contestants like Blair St. Clair, Valentina, BenDeLaCreme, Jan Sport, Baga Chipz, Raja Gemini and many more. Artists like John Cameron Mitchell, Rayvon Owen and Justin Vivian Bond will also be joining the massive lineup.
“We launched this festival hoping to unite a few fans with the drag artists they love during a hard time," PEG's founder and president David Charpentier said in a statement. "We could never have anticipated how overwhelming response would be around the world, from both artists and fans alike. We’re excited to work with so many talented artists on this lineup, and so pleased that GLAAD and Amazon will be part of this experience with us."
