The inaugural Coastal Twist LGBTIQ Arts & Culture Festival in 2019 saw something very special, commanding national attention by aligning with the most innovative festivals in the world Twist embodied authentic inclusion of all people and quadrupled expectations with over 7,000 people attending across 3 days of free and ticketed beach, film, theatre, exhibition, dance, events with up to 50% visitation. Festival highlight “Coastie Carnie Fair day” captured hearts and minds with rainbow family areas, teen spaces, disabilities spaces, and a main day stage with contemporary headliners alongside locals.

“We were all set to Return this October long weekend, Coastal Twist like most festivals around the country had to reimagine the how and why and we decided cancelation was not an option but pushing the festival out by almost 4 months would mean we could forge ahead and keep everyone safe with adjusted plans for a midsummer 5 day, all ages, accessible free and ticketed festival 19th – Jan 23rd to accompany future Oct dates.  It’s important that we continue with the positive momentum already generated toward a more visibly equitable and welcoming coastie community who are part of the planet as global citizens.”

The Coastal Twist Festival has positioned itself as the catalyst for new perceptions of a more welcoming Central Coast, and a coast which is showing its best side both to its neighbours and its visitors, that’s how regional healing and growth has opportunity to blossom, our vessel is world class contemporary and inclusive offerings which engage, educate, support & unite the entire community as well as amplify and promote our local economy, we would love everyone onboard!”

“There are so many ways you can get involved head over to the participate tab on our Coastal Twist website, enlist your pooch in the Puparazzi Pooch Parade, enter the surf event, become a sponsor or volunteer, have a stall at our community fair day, apply to enter the Art show, enter your business in the window display competition or have your own event as part of our Twisted Experiences. “

This Festival is breaking ground in the continuing work for disarming the thinking that difference is somehow bad, difference is not only normal but the biological basis of every living and breathing thing. So no matter who you are or where you’re from, we welcome you to Sign up, frock up and rock up to our Coastal Twist LGBTIQ Arts & Culture festival our biggest Coastie celebration of difference, diversity and dazzle! participate
