Idolize Spiegeltent

The Idolize Spiegeltent is heading to Darwin Festival, Thursday 9th to Sunday 26th August!

Spiegeltents are hand-hewn pavilions used as travelling dance halls, bars and entertainment salons since they were created in the early 20th century. Built of wood, mirrors, canvas, leaded glass and detailed in velvet and brocade, each has its own personality and style. There are only a handful of these unique and legendary tents of mirrors left in the world today and were lucky to have our hands on one for the Festival in August.

The Idolize Spiegeltent is an exquisite baroque-style hall of mirrors which will be nestled in a lush palm-covered corner of George Brown Botanic Gardens during Darwin Festival. Hosting a variety of music, comedy and cabaret acts, including The LoveBirds, it will be the perfect place for music and merriment throughout the Festival.

"Only through the on-going and increased support of our valued principal partner, the Northern Territory Government, could bringing a Spiegeltent to Darwin be possible," says Festival Artistic Director, Edwina Lunn.

"This is a great treat for local audiences to experience the thrill of watching intimate performances in a truly glamorous setting. I have to hold my tongue until launch night on 27 June before I can reveal the full line up planned for this new venue. Spectacular local acts and daring risque touring shows will grace this extraordinary venue in our stunning tropical gardens. Itll be something else! Im also very excited for the local talent who get the opportunity to perform in a famous performance space that has travelled the world."

Stay tuned for more information!
