Getting There

Swiftmania is coming to Melbourne and Fed Square invites you to join the party with Filipino drag queen Taylor Sheesh.

Taylor Sheesh, a long time fan, has been impersonating Taylor Swift since 2017. Now a global sensation, Taylor Sheesh has performed her Errors Tour in shopping malls and stadiums across the Philippines. Her performance on Fed Square’s main stage will be her first major public appearance in Australia.

Hosted by Tristan Meecham from All The Queens Men, the night kicks off with an extravaganza of local performers featuring voguing from The House of Diesel, dance pop-ups from Body Electric, Bollywood dancing with Sapphire Dance, and performances from First Nations artist 2Joocee and Chelsea Wilson plus cheerleading with Outlaw All Stars.

This night is for fans of Sheesh and those about to be – dress up, bring your besties and get ready to party.

Come dressed as your favourite Taylor for your chance to win an amazing prize, a trip to the Philippines courtesy of Cebu Pacific and Melbourne Airport.

This performance will be AUSLAN interpreted.
