About the Show

From $35 / General Admission Standing / 18+

The queerest reception for the opening of Brisbane Festival.

Heaps Gay lands in Brisbane with a huge art trash splash! Put on your best DIY outfit and dumpster dive into a world of queer decadence filled with rowdy and rousing performers, gaudy live acts, and party-starting DJs.  It’s better than your great auntie’s wedding.

From South Africa to South Korea, we’ll be transporting the party vibes around the world with live music from rapper Electro Pop Princess and more surprises to be announced. Bringing their best dollar-bin drag looks, Melbourne performance group YUMMY and Sydney’s The Magda Szubanskis will be knocking your socks off all night long, along with the best of Brisbane’s queer performance artists and musicians.

Each September, Brisbane Festival explodes across the city with a thrilling program of theatre, music, dance, circus, opera and major public events.
