It’s MCQP Party Time Cape Town… Is Your Outfit Ready? + Line-Up

Hunky mechanics, sassy drag queens, muscle cars, sexy pit stop girls and lots of burning rubber at Africa’s biggest and longest-running costume party

Don’t miss the biggest African lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) event of the year! MCQP is set to sashay its way onto Cape Town’s festive season calendar taking over Cape Town Stadium in Green Point on Saturday 15 December 2018.

"Drag Race" is the much-anticipated theme for this year’s soirée. The MCQP team are building the world's most fabulous drag race, flush with hunky mechanics, sassy drag queens, muscle cars, sexy pit stop girls and lots of burning rubber. Expect to see plenty of muscle cars, touring bikes and lots of on-the-track grease and muscle.

The possibilities for costumes are endless with inspiration to be found in everything from mechanics to race car drivers. For more inspiration, be sure to watch the American reality TV show, Rupaul’s Drag Race, which celebrates drag queens of any sexual orientation or gender identity in all their fabulousness. Seize this opportunity to transform yourself and make sure to recruit your friends in the process for some team spirit. 


  • 1 international headliner
  • 25 local supporting artists 
  • 5 diverse stages
  • Over 100 of SA's favourite drag queens

Ticket prices start at R300 per person (as part of a team) and are available via Quicket.
