This Gatsby-themed event requires 1920s attire – feathers, fedoras, pinstripes – and will feature local bands Cicada Rhythm and Lives of the Monster Dogs, DJ TJ and burlesque-inspired performances by Dangerous Curves. A series of lounges will feature cocktails, cigars, a casino and a special VIP lounge.
A selection of mixologists will compete head-to-head in the Makers & Shakers Mixology Championships and there will be Speakeasy Prohibition-Era Costume Contest
