fabALICE 2024

2024 marks the 30th anniversary of the widely acclaimed movie “Priscilla - Queen of the Desert”. The 1994 Australian comedy-drama film quickly attained cult status within the LGBTQI community. The plot follows two drag queens and a transgender woman as they journey across the Australian Outback from Sydney to Alice Springs in a tour bus that they have named “Priscilla", along the way encountering various groups and individuals.

The opportunity to develop an internationally recognised long term annual festival event for Central Australia uniquely called the ‘fabALICE Festival’. The 4-day festival showcases comedy, cabaret, live music, community pageant and social activities whilst paying homage to this iconic cult movie and stage musical. This year we will have a new Priscilla hub bar, Budget Barbie Camper town tours and a dress up rescreening of the movie and prizes for the best dressed.

Our iconic Gala under the Stars at the Old Quarry is headlined by Electric Fields this year and we host Rhonda Burchmore and Geraldine Hickey as headliners for the fabulous Comedy and Cabaret Friday night. You cannot miss Drag Bingo hosted by Party Passport on Sunday either.
