Tropical Steampunk 2021 – The Gala Costume Party of the Year

Sat 18 September 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Tropical Steampunk 2021 – The Gala Costume Party of the Year at Tanks Arts Centre

Event by Create More, Ticketlink and Tanks Arts Centre.


Nigh impossible to describe, but absolutely delightful to experience Tropical Steampunk 2021 is an elegant and whimsical celebration of live music, decor design, art and costuming. Experience the transformation of the rounded stone walls of Tank 3 into another time and space using projection art, industrial installations and the sweet reverberations of Cairns’ best music creations.


Travel back to a bygone era that never was! Where corsets and petticoats, top hats and welding goggles mix with cyber punks and pixies with a colourful twist. Tropical Steampunk is an annual event that encourages the viewer to become part of the artwork through their costumes and characters.


Featured artists of this extravaganza are: Whoodafunkit, Tinderbox, Faux Mo, DJ’s Just Andy and Tastey Clitta.


Best dressed prizes and elemental surprises.


This is a costume event – thus we beseech of you to dress up in some manner, step out of your ordinary life, and join the celebration! The TS team seek to make this an easy and fun process though. Sign up to their mailing list (via their website to be informed of the costume building workshops in the lead up to September 18th.


Tank 3 venue was made possible through the Cairns Regional Council Community Grants Program. This project was also made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund. Special thanks to Event Partner- Committee for Waste Reduction.
