New Queensland Cabaret Festival announced for 2014

BPH_Queensland_Cabaret_Festival_248Australian and international cabaret stars will take to the stage from 6 – 15 June at the Queensland Cabaret Festival – a new festival taking place across Brisbane Powerhouse, QPAC, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Arts Centre Gold Coast, Ipswich Civic Centre and in regional centres.

According to Queensland Cabaret Festival co-creative producers Kris Stewart and Alison St. Ledger the festival is set to bring Queenslanders the best of local and international cabaret.

Queensland Cabaret Festival builds upon the Brisbane Cabaret Festival foundations and takes it to another level – there’ll be international and Australian performers covering the sequin-spangled heights of cabaret in all its forms,” says Kris Stewart.

“If you enjoy great music, dance, circus and burlesque, delivered with drama, humour and glamour then you’ll be right at home during Queensland Cabaret Festival.”

Cracking comedy and social satire, exotic music from far flung places, local luminaries shining the light on the darker recesses of the soul, celebrations of song and visual delights. Sparkling, sexy and sophisticated. Kitschy and quirky, the Queensland Cabaret Festival are looking for high-quality shows by talented Australian artists to feature at this new event.

“We want artists that will shock, entertain and seduce an audience; no idea is too wild. We encourage everyone to submit their shows and get involved,” says Alison St. Ledger.

Submissions for the new Queensland Cabaret Festival close on Friday 20 December 2013. For more information, visit: for details.
