Visceral stemmed from the shortage of marginalized POC & LGBTQ+ talent within the local community, both on lineups and behind the scenes. By promoting diversity and cultural inclusivity, Visceral has been essential to the growth of the POC and Queer scene in Boston since its inception in 2016.
Visceral gatherings are conceptual, merging various forms of interactive, visual art. We are known for introducing design elements between the audience and the DJs to create a new dialogue and behavior driven by the visual and sensorial aspects in the environment. As for music, different styles of techno, yet always urgent, forward-thinking, and sensuous.
