The library is open, set to 100 degrees and Roasting!

Seven drag powerhouses from Naarm take to the stage to DRAG the world of Drag... but not before dragging each other!

Why scour the depths of Reddit, trawl the trails on Twitter or screenshot the shade on Facebook when these Australian Drag icons are ready to serve you the tea piping hot?

Stoking the fire and keeping the Roast just how you like it is your Roast Master, Big Blue herself, Abril LaTrene.

Australia has never seen a comedy drag roast of this size or calibre!

Once the Roast is wrapped up and you are ready for dessert, The Devlisih DJ Blayzn will fire up the decks and kick the party into overdrive as we dance, Drag and drop it like it's hot right up until 2 am!

There will be Pop-up shows all night long from some of Melbourne's favourite drag superstars!

You will be hard-pressed to find a more inclusive or eclectic celebration of Drag anywhere in the world!

If "Reading is Fundamental", Then "Roasting and Raving is a RIOT!"

Tickets are available to attend the entire Roast and Rave, or you can buy tickets to join us for the delicious drag dance party (Rave only) from 10:30pm!

Limited tickets will be available at the door.
