The Ending HIV Big Gay Out is New Zealand's largest and most fabulous Rainbow Community event, attracting annual crowds of more than 10,000 people. 2019 is the 20th anniversary of the Big Gay Out and we are gearing up for the biggest, GAYEST, Big Gay Out, ever!
Returning favourites Openside are joining us as one of our main acts this year! Possum Plows, lead singer of the emo-pop quartet, is a massive advocate and supporter of the rainbow community, being non-binary themselves. Having opened for Panic! At the Disco in 2018, it is guaranteed to be a fantastic performance that you won’t want to miss.
Jon Lemmon! Born in LA but living in Wellington for the last decade, this self-proclaimed ecstatic dance pop artist will make your heart sing and feet move. Known for his positive messages and inclusivity in his music we’re very happy to have him on stage at our 20th anniversary.
LEXXA AKA: Maude and Julia Morris, twin sisters - maybe identical, maybe not…. one day they’ll get a test but, for now, they make dreamy pop-bangers that tear shreds from your heart but still make you smile. We're excited to have the dreamy synth-pop duo join us on the Durex Main Stage this year.
The Miltones, local masters of blending modern blues-rock sounds with the nostalgia of a vintage record collection will be performing for their first BGO - and they're excited to give you a show! This five-piece turn heads with their powerful stage presence and are sure to leave you wanting more.
