About Us

News, editorial content, fresh tracks and mixes - all from your favorite (or soon-to-be-favorite) women & nonbinary people in electronic music. Underrepresented? Definitely. But not to be underestimated. 

Noctuary is based in San Francisco, CA. It began as a blog in 2016, recommending San Francisco's best parties. Today, it is a party, it is merch, it is a podcast, photography, and videography - all in an effort to push forward female-identified & nonbinary people forward - for a more inclusive and diverse dance music industry.

Recommended parties go up each Wednesday. The general criteria include consistently high quality dance music, supporting female, queer, POC, and trans artists regularly, and often occur at venues with posted anti-harassment policies and staff who are responsive to such policies. We currently only cover events within San Francisco, but recommend this calendar if you're seeking out other genres or events in the greater Bay Area. 

We welcome submissions and collaboration ideas from female/nonbinary identified artists, label owners, agents, and promoters in dance music.
