MCQP 2018 returns to Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, 15 December
Get your friends together and start planning your outfits, ’cause MCQP is around the corner!
MCQP, Africa’s biggest costume party that annually rings in the festive season, is returning to the Cape Town Stadium after five years, and will be taking place on Saturday, 15 December 2018.
The MCQP 2018 theme
The theme for this year’s MCQP was announced as “MCQP Presents: Drag Race”.
The Collins dictionary defines the term drag race as “a race between vehicles to test their acceleration from a complete stop, especially between specially designed cars on a short, straight course”. This definition will no doubt conjure up a favourite film scene for many, as drag races are depicted as a dramatic climax in several classic movies released during the last couple of decades.
For others, “drag race” is synonymous with the American reality TV show, Rupaul’s Drag Race, which has been renewed for an eleventh season, and celebrates drag queens of any sexual orientation or gender identity in all their fabulousness.
Back to the Mother City’s fabulous “eye in the sky” – the Cape Town Stadium
Project Manager of MCQP, Candice Heyns, further enthuses: “We’re tremendously excited to return to the Cape Town Stadium after five years as not only was this venue a firm favourite with MCQP fans in the past, but is just as iconicly part of the Mother City’s ‘makeup’ as what MCQP is.”
MCQP Presents: Drag Race will once again offer a variety of dance floors, some of the best DJs from around the world, and several areas where drag racers can chill and take in what promises to be one of the best nights of the December festivities. MCQPs full line-up will be announced soon.
