GiRLTHING was born in 2008 and changed Sydney’s LGBTQIA+ scene for the better! Launching as Sydney’s first “indie queer girl social” on Oxford Street every Thursday, GiRLTHING has since frequented every major club in Sydney, not to mention Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth. It’s safe to say she’s turned into a bit of an institution over the last decade. GiRLTHING creates safe spaces for queer art galleries, underground warehouse parties, lesbian skate competitions, sweaty club nights and more and will take over Rainbow Bar on Friday 22 July.
Featuring JACQUI CUNNINGHAM + LOUELLA DEVILLE + MOWGLI MAY + MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED.

POOF DOOF and its Pride Patrol stage activations have toured mainstream events providing safe spaces for queer patrons and showcasing the best LGBTQIA+ talent in the country. Get ready as they take over RAINBOW BAR on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 July, and keep an eye out as POOF DOOF superstars wander around the festival grounds too!
