Kicking off this year's Brisbane Festival in vibrant style, The Tivoli is getting a one-night-only makeover, becoming the Heaps Gay Trash Palace on Saturday, September 8. Just what does that entail? Think dumpster decadence, which is a term we've just coined to describe the shabby chic vibe. Also, think DIY frocks, a celebration of all things queer, and a heap of performers, live acts and DJs.
It's an 80s-themed trash wedding, after all. And, the shindig won't just take over The Tiv's interior, but will spill out into the car park too, becoming a block party. It's a ticketed affair, for $40 per person — and it's the finale to eight actual LGBTIQ weddings, which are taking part on King Street down the road as part of Qweens on King.
