Top 5 events at Tropical Fruits 2016
THIS year's Tropical Fruits New Year's party marks a break with social order, a radical, cyberpunk-journey beyond binary and into a new dimension.
Glamatron is your sexy, spandex-wearing, laser-eyed cyber host, beckoning you on a ride into a wormhole of sight and sound.
At the main event on New Year's Eve, party-goers will set down in the space opera high glam of Cabaret, or float weightlessly through space in the digitised projections of a world beyond time.
Some of the highlights of this year's festival are:
Join the local LGTBIQ community on the streets of Lismore in Tropical Fruits' 28th year and help commence the celebrations of the Glamatron New Year Festival.
Starting at 4.30pm December 29 from the Winsome Hotel, ending at City Hall with the Festival Opening Soiree, which will be followed by the Paul Capsis show.
- Paul Capsis:
Paul Capsis brings his sparkle and majesty in a blast-off Cabaret, to let go and say goodbye to a challenging year with his show Paul Capsis: Addicted to the Nightlife.
December 29, 8pm at Lismore City Hall.

- NYE Party:
The main event: Boasting a variety of DJS, Cabaret, Art Exhibition, Licensed Bar, Cafe, Chill space, and much more.
This year there will be a new Trance space thanks to infamous Sydney DJ Ruby.
Of course, the festival boasts more than purely DJs, with a star-spangled line up of Cabaret performers and cultural artisans treating us on the NYE Cabaret stage.
