MELT Festival returns for 2022!

Powerhouse’s unabashed celebration of queer art, artists, allies, icons and ideas has been announced for another stunning year.

Global headliners, award-winning cabaret, high-energy music club nights, a queer comedy gala, cutting-edge contemporary dance and First Nations art are all on the star-studded program.

Curated by award-winning writer, director and producer Daniel Evans, the 18-day LGBTQIA+ festival will transform Brisbane Powerhouse into a playground of neon chapels, club nights, “pleasuredomes” and secret cinemas.



MELT Festival is presented by Brisbane Powerhouse, proudly supported by Brisbane City Council, Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, B105, Crumpler, goa, Herbert Smith Freehills, Ovolo Hotels and QNews.
