About the artists

Miss Cairo has been a cabaret artist for the last decade and is the founding Director of The People of Cabaret. She has performed extensively around the world, and has a vast varied skill-set within the performing arts. A dancer, a singer, an actress, an activist, and a writer she aims to galvanise people into making expansive changes in the world!
KSMBA is a Naarm based classical musician turned DJ. With their sights now set on igniting the dance floor, their sets move across a range of genres, exploring the percussive, hypnotic and contemporary elements of dance music.
Tinika is renowned for her distinctive taste and adventurous track selection as a Naarm-based DJ. Through sonic exploration she strives to surprise with each carefully curated mix but also bring with her, a sense of nostalgia to the dance floor. Tinika grew up heavily influenced by the sounds she selects today, with her output being a feel good fusion ranging from house to baile funk to experimental hip hop, r’n’b and everything in between. Drawing on her queer black identity, you’ll be hard pressed to find a genre untouched by Tinika who seems to always give the crowd what they didn’t know they needed.
