MCQP, which started in 1994 as a highlight on the Cape Town gay calendar, has grown into South Africa’s biggest dress-to-theme party attended by all sorts of fun-loving creatives, from all over the world.
Venue – Cape Town Stadium – 5 floors of different music and vibes. The
2019 theme is “Loveball”.
The Love Ball has six main performance areas in play: Head to Toe, Hair Spectacular, Beauty and Face, Move to the Groove, Dressing Room, and The Winners Podium. Of course, the ball would not be a competition without its winners’ trophies. To quote “I went to a ball, I won. I got a trophy, and now everybody wants to play with me.”
Guests to arrive in a myriad of audacious outfits. “The dress code is whatever you feel best in, gowns, leather, togs or less-is-more. It’s a show biz game – anything goes!
MCQP’s loveball will be a combination of music festival, circuit party, burlesque cabaret, drag variety show, circus, and Viennese ball with on-field antics, locker room language and sweaty Springboks.
