The Bohemian Masquerade Ball is the flamboyant vanguard for a whole sub-culture of junkyard hero’s, gentleman punks, flaneur’s and neo-vaudeville performers.
A boutique festival, running for over 3 years, recognised as a grand carnival of underground culture. It plays host to a boiling-pot of independent music, extreme circus and performative installations. Sideshow, burlesque, cabaret acts and rovers are thread between the headline bands to create a seamless event, overwhelming the audience and co-creating something that has an explosive effect and little comparison. Retaining a strong commitment to presenting local performers and bands from Australia’s sub-cultural artistic communities, predominantly those from Melbourne, but we represent and link West End, Marrickville, Northern Rivers and the northern suburbs of Melbourne into one glorious Bohemia that spans states and transcends genres and labels.
This spring sees The Bohemian Masquerade Ball and in its glory and cabaret format (Boho Club) gracing the theatres and halls of Australia’s bohemian districts and backwater secret spots. A full media crew (Being Films, Luke David Kellett and Audio Monkey) will be creating webisodes, podcasts, tour stories and photographs from acclaimed music photographer Luke David Kellett, all freely accessible via thebohoball.com.
A feature length documentary is to screen on SBS early next year.
Its time to begin work on your costume, dust off your mask and get ready to party.
