The Adelaide Feast Festival for 2015 is set to be a real drag…in the best kind of way! It has been announced that Austrian pop star and drag queen, Conchita Wurst, will be headlining the event. Winner of Eurovision 2014, Wurst has become one of the most famous acts in the world, with over 154k Twitter followers adoring the star.
Wurst is known for having a big voice and an even bigger personality, and today GNN released a YouTube video announcing the Feast Festival news. ‘I’m very excited because I will be back in Australia at the end of November for the Feast Festival!’ said Wurst in the announcement.
Although rumours have been flying around Adelaide and, in fact, Australia, that Conchita would be returning to Oz for the biggest LGBTIQ festival in SA, the Feast Festival organisers have been keeping their lips sealed up until today.
“Yes, Conchita will be coming to Adelaide,' said Feast Festival general manager Cassandra Liebeknecht to GNN, 'with a brand new show and involving a heap of local talent.'
While the pop-singing drag queen caused controversy amongst more conservative countries in the 2014 Eurovision competition, it seems that Australia is beyond excited for the star to arrive. Social media platforms have been in a frenzy of support from fans, proving that the hype on gender equality and diversity is still in full swing- with Conchita standing in the spotlight front and centre.
Feast Festival runs from 14th-29th November 2015 and we can't wait to see what Conchita will bring to the event!
