One of Brisbane’s largest LGBTQIA+ street festivals, Big Gay Day, has announced its Labor Day long weekend date for 2024 – Sunday, May 5, as well as the amazing line-up – Spice Girl’s Melanie C is heading over from the UK to headline!
The all-inclusive, one-day event is back for its 24th instalment and has also announced its theme, revealing that partygoers will be taken down a rainbow brick road with Wickham of Oz!
The Wickham hosts Big Gay Day in Fortitude Valley, and the annual event sees a sparkling line-up of popstars, drag queens, musicians and DJs come together.
The Big Gay Day 2024 line-up:
Melanie C (UK)
Sneaky Sound System
Tall Paul (UK)
With a long history of closing down the inner-city street outside The Wickham Hotel, 2024 will be no different. Fabulous Paul Wheeler will also MC once again, having hosted previous Big Gay Days and regular events as a much-loved member of Brisbane’s LGBTQIA+ community.
The Wickham has become one of Brisbane’s leading entertainment venues with the one-day festival previously hosting internationally renowned artists like Boy George and The Veronicas and more. Each year Big Gay Day raises around $10,000 for LGBTQIA+ charities and, in 2024, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to two LGBT organisations.
First release tickets go on sale on Wednesday, February 14 https://biggayday.com.au/
