A body positivity festival taking up space and celebrating all bodies
Big Thick Energy is the brainchild of performance artist and booty manipulator Demon Derriere and has been curated to promote body positivity and liberation through movement, creativity and community.
Our variety festival features skill sharing workshops, local artisan markets and three evenings of high energy entertainment with thick, curvy performance artists breaking stereotypes and celebrating self-love. Featuring Burlesque, Drag, Vogue, Poetry Slam, Freak Show and Music, Big Thick Energy is a safe inclusive space for IBPOC and LGBTQIA+ bodies.
Join us to express yourself in a safe, inclusive and accessible space where judgement, stereotypes and discrimination are abolished, and you can celebrate the skin you’re in.
Featuring performances by:
- Demon Derriere
- Domino De Jour
- Jesse Dean
+ loads more special big babes to be announced!
All sessions are Auslan interpreted.
Workshops will be held at Chunky Move.

A Plus Market is thrilled to partner with the legends at Big Thick Energy to present a curated market of fierce fat brands across two days at The Malthouse.
A Plus Market is a size-inclusive roving fashion market, offering an accessible space for plus size people to shop from sustainable local brands and break the fast fashion cycle. With plus size people often shut out of the mainstream fashion industry, A Plus creates an environment where everyone is welcome to take up space.
