A one-night-only mini-fest of the best from Midsumma and beyond, hosted by multi-award winning comedian Lou Wall

Hello darlings!

Get Bent Fest! is an all night gala extravaganza flashing you a delicious line-up of Melbourne's finest queer acts.

Join award-winning comedian Lou Wall for an exclusive, one-night-only event bringing together the best performances from the Midsumma Festival program, our city’s grandest drag royals, and DJs from across the rainbow road together in one screamingly over-the-top festivalette.

COVID not invited.

So bust the binary! Smash supremacy! Ride the rainbow! And Get Bent at Common Rooms for the bloody crowning of Midsumma Festival’s newest lil baby. You’ll have a gay old time.

Featuring special guests Dazza & Keif, with more acts to be announced. Sounds like a kiki!

Get Bent Fest! is presented in collaboration with Creative Partnerships Australia and is raising funds to directly support the development of new theatre work by emerging queer artists in Melbourne. For every dollar raised, Creative Partnerships Australia will match it. So show your support for our nearest and queerest creative workers!
