Making a splash over in the UK, Massaoke is now lighting up Radelaide this year in The Garden of Unearthly Delights.
If you love to loudly (and obnoxiously) sing along to all your favorite anthems in the car with your mates, then you (and your mates) will be met with open arms at the Spiegeltent at this year’s Fringe Festival.
Massaoke is when everybody comes together to sing, howl or scream along to their most loved hits, which are performed by a live band while the lyrics are displayed on a big screen. It’s as simple – and as irresistible – as that.
Nothing creates a sense of common unity and shared purpose more than a room full of people singing ‘Living on a Prayer’ together. Massaoke might just be the answer to world peace – as it is impossible to attend and not be completely swept up in the atmosphere.
Unlike standard Karaoke, you manage to avoid the cringing stage fright associated with getting up alone to sing an intensely passionate, but intensely out of tune, rendition of ‘Hallelujah’; instead – everybody gets to sing out of tune TOGETHER and it feels f*cking amazingly therapeutic.
The party kicks off at midnight every Friday and Saturday at The Garden of Unearthly Delights (plus Sunday 13th of March), so come down and get your fix. I guarantee you’ll be back for more!
