It's not every day that an inner-city street shuts down for an onslaught of music and fun. No, just Big Gay Day. Now in its 20th year, the annual event returns to The Wickham and the surrounding roadway for an afternoon and evening of music and celebratory mayhem.

Topping the bill is a name that households across the globe will know: Mel C. You know, the one from one of the biggest girl groups ever — the Spice Girls. She'll be performing with her band of drag performers, Sink The Pink. You'll also catch Indigenous Australian electronic duo Electric Fields; bubble gum punk duo Cry Club; hip hop and roots collective The Regime; local act Being Jane Lane; indie folk artist Julia Rose; a heap of DJs and drag performances.

It's proven to be the city's most colourful and diverse street festival for the past 19 years, and will continue to be so again in 2020. There'll be carnival acts, multiple performance spaces, food trucks, themed pop-up bars and plenty of partying people on the agenda, as is raising funds for six charity partners that help the LGBTQIA+ community.

Mel C and Sink The Pink.
