The Main Tent will host international acts who have created never before seen performances all adroitly overseen by ringmaster Arte Simone.

Bernadette Byrne is also bringing her seriously naughty The Little Death Club[/LINK] to the tent to give us world-renowned hilarity.
The demented duo Bourgeois & Mauricebring original songs and high fashion to the stage with a provocative and hilarious catwalk event. A little more heartfelt but no less funny, Adriano Cappelletta give us This Boy's In Love. Bursting with heart, this show showcases stories and songs of past boyfriends and zombie gays. Terror Australis brings Grindr cabaret which tears Australia to pieces. This outback contiki tour brings a frothing hot mess of black comedy, anti-burlesque, and Hills Hoist pole dance.
For those who like their art standing still, international street artist Phlegm will create his first Melbourne Installation. The northern wall of the Love & Lewis building will be transformed into an augmented reality masterpiece which comes to life with a smart phone. Art lovers can also traverse the streets and galleries in ARTWALK. These Saturday events will commence at the rooftop sculpture park of MARS Gallery and discover the Windsor version of Hosier Lane.
If this isn't enough already [LINK=https://www.ragnbonemanmusic.com/]Rag'n'Bone Man will be headlining at the Bromley Grand Ballroom. He will be performing a masterful set along with his smash hit 'Human'.
