Making dreams come true this Midsumma Festival!

Dolly Diamond is making dreams come true this Midsumma Festival! She’ll be rescuing contestants from their mundane lives, transforming them into their idols and making them stars for a night! Which stars will be unveiled? And who will win?

Music icons and idols will be brought to life in Dolly Diamond's Star for a Night.

Fresh from your lockdown livestream, Dolly Diamond has converted Chapel Off Chapel into a television variety show soundstage where, each night she will put local contestants through their paces. They will perform the songs and take on the look of their favourite entertainment idols – and this can be any music superstar, alive or dead.

Dolly’s special guests for these performances include Bob Downe (21 Apr), Silvie Paladino (22 Apr), Rhonda Burchmore (23 Apr), Lucy Holmes (24 Apr), Tash York (nightly) and Matthew Hadgraft (nightly).

Dolly Diamond, Melbourne’s queen of cabaret, has proven herself to be one of the country’s finest talents. She is right at home at Midsumma Festival, having performed in, produced for and hosted events at seventeen Midsumma Festivals. Dolly has also had hit seasons at Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Fringe World Perth, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Ballarat Cabaret Festival and Broken Heel Festival, to name only a few. Dolly is an Ambassador for Guide Dogs Victoria, Movember, the Children’s Tumour Foundation, GiveOUT Day and ‘Dolly Does Chapel (At Home)’. Dolly is co-producer and host of ‘Kerrie & Dolly’ and also appears regularly on ABC News Breakfast (ABC TV).

Dolly Diamond is excited to be back on stage this Midsumma Festival - and she can’t wait to find out who your favourite stars are.

Don’t miss Dolly Diamond's Star for a Night - an unpredictable song contest to rival all song contests.
