Horizon Festival 2021 | 27 AUG - 5 SEP // 27 Aug - 5 Sep 2021

Wonderland Spiegeltent

Wonderland Spiegeltent

Delighting people across Australia with its decadent art-deco interior and enchanting structure, the Wonderland Spiegeltent is set to light up the Sunshine Coast and transport audiences to an era of cheek and charm, sass and decadence. 

Overlooking the water at Cotton Tree Park, the Wonderland Spiegeltent will host 10 days and nights of world class cabaret, comedy, circus, dance, and creative workshops. Watch the sunset and enjoy local eats and festival vibes with Live & Local music every night in the Spiegeltent Garden. 

In the Spiegeltent you’ll find everything from the cabaret hooligans of Briefs Factory to the heart-stopping  acrobatics and aerials of Circus Wonderland – A Mermaid’s Tale; a glorious, vomit-splash of sequins, spandex and glitter for Common People Dance Eisteddfod and our littlest audiences will dazzle at the Disco Rainbow Sparkle Dance Party; as well as hands-on workshops and comedy from one of Australia’s brightest comedy stars, Steph Tisdell. 

The Wonderland Spiegeltent tours nationally around Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Barwon Heads, Port Douglas, Townsville and Cairns; and we are thrilled to be presenting it on the Sunshine Coast for the very first time.  

The Wonderland Spiegeltent is a licensed venue. Persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
