Vogue Festival is back and bigger than ever, and this year Adelaide’s East End is celebrating in style.
On Friday 18 and Saturday 19 October, Rundle Street and Ebenezer Place will be jam packed with special events, Insta-moments, live music, shopping and dining offers to celebrate the show-stopping festival.

Whether you’re a true Carrie Bradshaw, or just love a good party in Adelaide’s East End, here are some events you don’t want to miss out on over the two days.

Palace Nova East Cinema Presents McQueen
In their critically acclaimed documentary ‘McQueen’, directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui bring rich new detail to the classic misfit tale of late couturier Alexander McQueen.
Deftly weaving together candid and revelatory interviews with colleagues, friends and family, you’ll be moved by the unruly and unlikely true story of how one overweight, gay, working-class outsider beguiled and then became international fashion royalty — fearlessly riveting and revolting the gatekeepers with the savage beauty of his work.
General admission is $12, movie club tickets are $10 and each include a glass of bubbles on arrival. Tickets can be purchases here.
When? Friday 18 October, from 9pm
Where? Palace Nova East Cinema
