Come dressed in your best gangster style and lose yourself in the groove of Spyglass Gypsies or try to resist the charms of infamous showgirl Bunni Lambada.

Spend time in the lockup with a true-crime storyteller, shoot your own silent-film scene or have your mug shot taken in the charge room. Unleash your dark side and design your own tattoo, contribute to a City of shadows crime-zine and learn razor-sharp card tricks.

The Festivalists bring together artists, unusual spaces and new ideas to create stimulating, interactive cultural experiences. Presenting a range of events, from accessible film festivals to parties in iconic venues, their mission is to infuse culture with fun and develop local audiences for Australian and international artists.
