Buckle up for a fabulous journey back to the outback as we celebrate the Dirty 30th Birthday of the iconic film “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” and sashay down memory lane in the very town where it all began – Broken Hill, Australia.

It’s been three decades since this sparkling gem graced our screens, and the Silver City is ready to paint the town pink (and turquoise, and green…) for a five-day extravaganza known as the Broken Heel Festival.

From September 5th to 9th, 2024, Broken Hill will transform into a dazzling oasis of drag, divas, disco, and desert charm.


This is more than just a festival; it’s a pilgrimage for “Priscilla” fans worldwide. Imagine yourself joining 6,000 fellow fabulous creatures strutting down Main Street in dazzling Priscilla-inspired outfits, cheering during an interactive screening of the film with a special cast or crew Q&A (and maybe even a reunion!), and busting a move during a flash mob in the dusty streets of Silverton.
