One of Fortitude Valley's bars is going green to celebrate a big pop culture milestone. Plenty of excellent movies, TV shows, albums and songs will mark an anniversary this year, but when April 2021 hits, animated favourite Shrek will turn 20. So, The Brightside is doing its usual thing and throwing a party — a month early.
Rediscover why it really isn't easy being an ogre while listening to a live band play the entire Shrek soundtrack, and competing in the costume competition. Clearly, you'll also get a whole lot of Smash Mouth — aka 'All Star' and their version of 'I'm a Believer' — stuck in your head. Indeed, when the band isn't playing at Shrek Fest, The Brightside's DJs will be spinning 'All Star' on repeat.
Here, all that glitters is gold — and green — with the party happening from 6pm on Friday, March 19. Tickets cost $30 per person.
