Hold on to your glitter, the party people at Palace J Entertainment—you know the guys who brought us Sets On The Beach, Wine Machine and more—have just announced a brand spanking new four-day pop-up fest and we can hardly contain ourselves.

Introducing Palace Social Club, a new riverside pop-up coming to Mounts Bay Sailing Club over the Anzac Day Long Weekend from Friday 23 April to Monday 26 April. Expect hyper-grammable custom styling, dreamy pastel-hued lounge zones, swanky cocktail bars, and a show-stopping pink stage, all backed up by some stunnin’ river views.

As for what’s on the bill party-wise, they have not dropped a beat, with five knock-out events over four days. 

Perhaps most exciting is Perth’s first ever Poof Doof Drag Brunch on the Saturday so prepare yourself for bottomless mimosas, brunch and special guest appearances from Australia’s fiercest queens, Coco Jumbo (RuPaul’s Drag Race) and Jimi The Kween (The Voice). If you want to double down on the Poof Doof action (hint: you do), stick around Saturday afternoon for The Big Gay Bay Day and rave yourself into oblivion with headliner and absolute drag icon DJ Kitty Glitter and queer DJ heroes like Aaron Matthews (UK), Leask (Per), Argonaut (Melb), Elise Keddie (Per) and Your Girl Pho (Per).

Of course, there’s plenty more action across the weekend. On Friday they kick things off with Interzone; a fresh dance offering brought to you by a couple of the legends behind the Planet X Trinity (Outer Body, Freedom Time and System). Expect non-stop Friday night grooves alongside an epic lineup of heavyweights from Australia and abroad including Ben UFO (UK), Marcellus Pittman (USA), Andy Garvey (SYD) and heaps more.

On Sunday they bring us A Day On The Bay. With Aussie favourite DJs Set Mo on the decks you can choose to dance the hangover away or just plop yourself on a daybed with a spritz in hand and enjoy the boujee bayside vibes. Whatever floats your boat.

If you’re still standing come Monday, turn up for Voyage Festival. Presented by Voyage Day Party (who sold out all their summer shows), this boutique-style fest will see Perth’s leading DJs tear it up over two stages, with a tonne of pop-up bars and extra activations to really kiss the long weekend goodbye in style. 

Gather your crew and snap up tickets while you can.
