Sydney Cabaret Festival presents

The Sydney Cabaret Competition: Grand Final

10 Jul 2019

Australia’s next generation of cabaret superstars will launch their careers at The Sydney Cabaret Competition: Grand Final hosted by ‘International Queen of Cabaret’ Trevor Ashley.


On the night nine performers will each perform their own short cabaret shows, and we’re thrilled to announce our Grand Finalists: Nyssa Milligan, Irene Nicola, Katelin Koprivec, Sarah Murr, Naomi Livingston, Rachael Gillfeather, Ali Calder, Billie Palin and Clare Ellen O’Connor.


One lucky winner will receive a career changing prize and will go on to perform at the festival’s closing night. Our judging panel of distinguished international entertainers will also select a runner up and the audience will choose their favourite to receive an award from a total prize pool valued at over $5,000.


The Sydney Cabaret Competition has already seen contestants compete throughout June in three separate heats. Each heat was overseen by some of Australia’s most valued entertainers, including Catherine Alcorn, Matt Lee and Margi De Ferranti, who helped select our nine grand finalists.


Come support local talent and live music at the Grand Final of the Sydney Cabaret Competition.
