IT'S almost time to get fabulous again, with Broken Hill preparing to host Australia's most popular and spectacular celebration of drag culture.

The Broken Heel festival - which celebrates the theatrical anniversary of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, will take place from September 13-15.

The event takes place at the hit Australian film's "spiritual home" The Palace Hotel, which famously featured in the movie.

This year's event will be hosted by Philmah Bocks and Art Simone and will feature headline performances from some of the nation's leading cultural personalities.

The event will also feature DJ's Showgirls, Bio Queens and Drag Queens and Drag Kings representing every corner of Australia.

This year's festival will welcome TV personality Carlotta, who will headline the entertainment on the Saturday night.

Other performers at this year's event will include Dolly Diamond, Leather Lungs, Michael Griffiths and Kitty Glitter.

There will also be a special food menu, cocktails and drag markets where visitors can shop 'til they drop.

Entertainment will take place across three stages and will include comedy, cabaret, live music and social activities paying homage to the famous movie and stage musical.

The Town Square will host the Main Drag in Drag street parade, which has become a big hit with the local community.
