Making its long-awaited return after three years at home making sourdough in slouchwear, iconic after-hours party Jurassic Lounge is back, and this year it’s all about the heroes.
Taking place on Saturday 18 June, from 6:30-10pm, the Australian Museum (AM) invites Sydneysiders to jump out of those trackies, throw on a cape and get ready to conquer the world as only heroes do.
Featuring performances by some Sydney’s most fabulous drag queens, a mutant barnyard, spin jockeys and an autopsy of a T., rex conducted by leading scientists from Improv Theatre Sydney, Jurassic Lounge: Heroes guarantees a smorgasbord of fun. There will be dancing, sideshow antics, immersive experiences, a pop-up bar and the chance to explore the AM’s epic exhibition, Jurassic World by Brickman®.
The evening’s epic line-up features:

  • Soul of Sydney DJs: Fresh from performances at Sydney Festival and Vivid, Soul of Sydney DJs are professional body-movers and purveyors of the finest musical selections of Soul, Funk, Afro-Latin Roots, Dance Floor Jazz, NY Disco, Roller Boogie, Garage and beyond.
