Queen of Cabaret, Dolly Diamond has taken the reins of this year’s Melbourne Cabaret Festival bringing together ten Australian premiere shows along with some of the best new talent, Tuesday 20 June until Sunday 2 July 2017.

“At last I can reveal the fabulous line-up for this year’s Melbourne Cabaret Festival”, says Dolly Diamond, Artistic Director.

“It's full of homegrown Australian talent with a huge amount of new works. It was important for me this year to draw on the talented artists who live and work in Australia, just as I do. I'm a great admirer of artists working all around the world but I felt it was time to focus on the performers who are the backbone of Australian cabaret.”

“I believe we have put together a program with massive audience appeal and for me that's what cabaret is all about. I'm looking forward to seeing you all at Chapel Off Chapel when June rolls around, so be sure to get your tickets early and support the festival that supports Australian cabaret.”
