Heaps Gay - The Festival of Queer Delights
Heaps Gay and Vivid Sydney are, in the words of Janet Jackson, together again, and good times will be shared again.
Marrickville’s Factory Theatre will be transformed into an all immersive, all-inclusive carnival of music, art and performance across 3 stages on the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend. Presented by FBi Radio.
This year we have ramped up our live contingent, and we’re stoked to present headline sets from Sydney heart-throbs Collarbones, and Melbourne disco-rock weirdos The Blow Waves. Just announced, the magnetic Rainbow Chan will be backed by an all-female band featuring Moon Holiday & Corin.
Melbourne hip-hop junkie Yo! Mafia will be joined by the Heaps Gay Twerk Team for a set of unbridled booty poppin’, and pocket monster HTML Flowers is set to hyper beam into our hearts.
We’re HEAPS proud to announce a special performance from local organisation Heaps Decent, who provide musical mentorship for young people from marginalised and disadvantaged communities and will be showcasing some of their awesome young talent. Rounding out the live lineup are neon punks Dweeb City and alien baby-doll Simo Soo.
Our live acts will be joined by a heaving hoard of talent on the decks including Adi Toohey, Ariane, Fleetwood Crack, The Smuts, Yung Brujo and loads more.
In the art department, Sydney vogue royalty Bhenji Ra & Slé are set to destroy, while shape-shifter Caroline Garcia will take us on a joy-filled interactive trip to the past with her Soul Train... Freak out! Bask in the alluring beauty of miss Radha La Bia, direct from Newtown via Mumbai, while Jenny Kee and Alfred Hitchcock collide with the feathered antics of the Deep Sea Astronauts. Become a part of Heaps Gay film history with the Witches Dance Tank or have your future predicted in the mysterious fortune booth, all while bathing in the glow of projections and installations from Zender Bender, Mikaela Stafford, Torrie Torrie and Saara McHale.
Overseeing the festivities will be carnival masters and hostesses with the most-messes, Wisteria Hysteria... Let’s get hysterical!
*Ticket purchase will include entry to an after-party, with details TBA.
