One of my favourite parties of the year is here! MCQP 2014! The Mother City Queer Project (MCQP) had it’s 20th anniversary last year as one of the Cape Town’s most loved parties. This year it has a new home at the Cape Town City Hall. Expect FULL ALL OUT decor (just like MCQP 2013, epic MCQP 2012 & MCQP 2011) and people dressed up like an American fratboy Halloween party. It’s a TON of fun as there are multiple dancefloors and music for everyone’s taste (although I am aware that the hip hop heads would like to be represented a little more 😉 ).
This year’s theme is Royal Navy – a combination of royals and navy. Kings and queens and everything from the house of Windsor, Tudor and Cards, sailors, seamen, petty officers, pirates and even some luminous starfish are expected to light up the pink carpet.
Partygoers will be treated to seven dance floors, each with its own theme and music style, and can look forward to a huge line-up which includes local and international DJ’s such as:
- LIVE STAGE: Jacques Terreblanche | Lengendairy | The Village Peoples | The City | Wolftown | Red Tape Riot | The Kiffness |
