Dannii Minogue is headlining the opening street party of Adelaide’s Feast Festival next month on the LGBTI event’s 20th anniversary.
Feast Festival general manager Cassandra Liebeknecht said the opening night would be a 90’s party to mark the anniversary and Dannii was a perfect fit.
Dannii’s 1997 pop anthem “All I Wanna Do” just so happens to coincide with the inception of the Feast Festival that same year.
“She’s a supporter and advocate of the community and anyone who can champion equality and acceptance in a larger capacity is really important for Feast,” she said.
The opening night party will be held on October 22 on Hyde St in Adelaide, with food trucks and bars as well as DJs on the main stage.
Feast will run until November 6 and will feature more than 50 shows and events over 15 days and nights celebrating queer culture.
Highlights of the 2016 program include performances by UK rock duo Z-Star Delta; cabaret artists Amelia Ryan and Michael Griffiths in Livvie and Pete, based on the music of Olivia Newton-John and Peter Allen; the premiere of local queer film Hand Grenade; and out comedian Victoria Healy’s The Vick Van Dyke Show.
