Nocturnal x Midsumma: Lunar New Year Disco
Midsumma Festival and Melbourne Museum bring Lunar New Year Disco, a queer street dance battle hosted by Thailand’s Pangina Heals (Drag Race Thailand) and Taiwan’s Chrissy Chou, curated by Jonathan Homsey.
Contestants will battle it out, delivering waacking and punking inspired by 1970s Los Angeles gay nightlife which has grown in popularity across Asia. You will experience an exclusive after dark access to permanent galleries at Melbourne Museum, as well as back of house collection displays. The night will have two tournaments, a 1 vs 1 waacking battle and a queer performance of Punking Dramatics showdown. Competitors will vie for the eyes of the crowd and judges as we party to disco beats broadcasting on Hope St Radio.
Dress however you identify and wear what makes you feel best in your disco realness! Party and celebrate the Lunar New Year by being you, being visible, and wishing for good fortune with us under the disco ball.
Please note, this is a strict 18+ event.
