LGBTQIA+ festival ‘Summer Camp’ is coming to Sydney and Melbourne 

Sophie Ellis-Bextor is set to headline the queer ‘Summer Camp’ festival in Sydney and Melbourne this November.

The organizers for the LGBTQIA+ festival have announced more acts to the line-up that will be hitting our shores at the end of the year.

Alongside our Murder on the Dancefloor singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, there will be our favs, The Veronicas rocking out on stage. Get ready to sing their bangers 4ever and When it all falls apart, with everyone else who grew up in the 2000s. Who knows maybe Allday will show up and they’ll do their cover of Big Yellow Taxi together.

DJ Kiddy Smile, who has been coined as the “French prince of voguing” is slated to perform, as is London DJ and drag queen Jodie Harsh who will be  joining queer performers from different scenes and creative expressions  that is set to make ‘Summer Camp’ an unforgettable festival.

The festival was set to take place in February earlier this year but due to COVID-19 restrictions, it had to be postponed. It will now be held at Sydney’s Centennial Park on the 5th of November before making its way to Reunion Park in Melbourne the weekend after on November 12th.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor recently broke a Guinness world record for the biggest disco dance! Let’s get that vibe going at this festival!

Tickets are available here. Get on it! It’ll be a blast.
