Last night, Troye Sivan and Charli XCX co-hosted and co-headlined the first-ever Go West Fest at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. The festival’s name was inspired by the 1979 Village People song about finding a utopian land free of homophobia. Troye and Charli XCX – who recently collaborated on “1999” – curated the line-up, which included both LGBTQ acts and other artists active in the fight for equal rights. The festival was presented by Live Nation and sponsored by Bud Light and CALVIN KLEIN.
