Dive in to a hundred hours of nonstop drag and more as Oaklash serves up three days and nights of online performance, DJ sets and panel discussions streamed from SF's Oasis nightclub.

Beatrix LaHaine and Mama Celeste will cohost the lineup of Bay Area favorites, including Nicki Jizz, Lisa Frankenstein, Snaxx, Tyson Check-In, VERA, Jota Mercury, Beverly Chills, FKA Supernova Girl, D'Arcy Drollinger, Mr. David Glamamore.

"Last year over 250,000 people tuned in to watch our festival online and we learned that these virtual platforms are an amazing way to make our show more accessible and to expand our audience," said festival director Mama Celeste in a press statement. "We're committed to live streaming every Oaklash from here on out and bringing our show live to anyone who wants a little bit of drag and queer excellence from the comfort of their home."

Since the pandemic began, Oasis has become a vital makeshift TV studio that's streamed archival, recently recorded and live events on Oasis TV. Who could forget their 12-hour marathon, held in March 2021, which raised more than $250,000? (Read our March 7 coverage.)

Along with live acts, performers from around the world have submitted prerecorded performances for the fourth annual Oaklash. The weekend will also feature a series of panel discussions on race, disability, nightlife after quarantine and other topics.

While Oasis will serve as the studio for live portions, there will be no in-person audience. If you want to watch the show from a bar, there will be an official viewing party happening at El Rio (3158 Mission St.) in San Francisco hosted by Per Sia, Yves St Croissant, and VivvyAnne ForeverMORE.
