Tex Perkins and Matt Walker. Tex Perkins has played a key role in Australian music & it’s understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has taken in everything from the groundbreaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses.

“As we exited the Spiegeltent there was a buzz, something pretty damn special had happened that needed to be shared among us!” – Clayton Werner
“…an artist who must surely be regarded as one of the greatest front men in the country.” – The Music

Blunderland is a New York late night show sensation. Blunderland is an unstoppable force of New York’s top burlesque, cabaret, drag, and circus artists, with a generous helping of internationally touring performers.

“Blunderland is an outrageous and subversive celebration of all that is weird, queer and extravagant…” The Advertiser

 

For the families The Greatest Magic Show will be joining us. Having garnered international acclaim in Edinburgh, New Zealand and England, the stars Sam and Justin will be hitting the stage with brand new illusions direct from a Las Vegas stage!

“The Penn & Teller of AU!” – Glam Adelaide, ★★★★★ Stars

 

The nostalgic Wonderland Spiegeltent is the most enchanting of structures – feel the weight of ten thousand late nights when you walk inside, evoking stories of love, passion and debauchery from Europe in the 1930s. Velvet and brocade curtains balloon inside, whispering the secrets of performances gone by; intimate booths, a circular stage and stained-glass windows transport you back to an era of cheek and charm, sass and decadence – the lusty, busty crème de la crème of the cabaret world.
