Get your bright pink lippy and fur coat ready for Adelaide’s Queer Arts and Cultural Festival, Feast. Featuring reality star Gamble from The Real Housewives of Melbourne, the event promises to be two weeks bursting with vibrant queer and art culture.
The annual Feast Festival is back with a flurry of pink feathers, with a program that supports LGBTIQ+ South Australian artists and event producers across a range of different genres.
This year Feast introduces three ambassadors: music legend and 2012 Feast Ambassador Libby O’Donovan, former 2007 artistic director for Feast Daniel Clarke, and Will Sergeant whose alter ego Dr. Gertrude Glossip has participated in every Feast since its inception in 1997.
Each year the Festival kicks off with the Pride March followed by all the exciting glitter and glam of the opening night party which will be headlined by the Real Housewives of Melbourne star, Gamble Breaux.
After releasing her first single This Time feat. Jason Singh earlier this year Gamble will perform live at the event and will be treating Feast goers to an exclusive song written for Feast’s opening night.
“I am thrilled to be part of Feast’s opening night party, not only because I love the city and people of Adelaide but the LGBT community have been such a huge support to my career so I want to return the favour,” said Gamble.
“I’m laying down a few dance tracks at the moment which I hope the Adelaide crowd will love and I’m also currently writing a song especially for Feast – so it’ll be one night to remember,” said Gamble.
Joining Gamble on the opening night party stage will be Miss Burlesque Adelaide 2018 winner, Vivienne Von Coffin, band Bad Habits, and Adelaide DJ sensation Seb Jay.
Feast Festival runs for 16 days and includes a variety of events including cabaret, theatre, comedy, music, literature, and conversations. It will conclude with the family friendly event Picnic in the Park, where you can take along your picnic blankets and baskets and enjoy the serenity of Pinky Flat. There will be an assortment of local market stalls, food vendors and community information stands.
Feast will celebrate all that is Queer Culture including outrageous drag queens and inclusive community events to gut-wrenching performances that examine what it means to be queer, and how hard it still is, even with same sex marriage now being legalised in Australia.
