If you love a good singalong and Meat Loaf classics, this is the show for you! Join the fun and laughter as we Loafaoke together.

Lucy Best and Nicky Barry are two of Melbourne’s favourite loud-mouthed, bawdy comedy queens who guide you through a mass karaoke experience. They would do anything for love, including hosting this fun and ridiculous shared karaoke show.

Lyrics on screen will put the words right into your mouth. You can sing along sweetly, have fun and drink a nice bevvie. However, if you don’t want to sing or prefer not to drink, well, two out of three ain’t bad.

Make sure your Festival of Voices experience is all revved up with someplace to go! Maybe you’ll be, or maybe you’ll find a special girl or boy, and when the night is over, you can race home like a bat out of hell.
