Highlights include, Tulliah, who will kick off Chapel Fringe Sessions, singing songs from her new EP recorded during lockdown where she worked remotely with Grammy award-winning producer David Kahne in NYC who has worked with Lana Del Rey, Paul McCartney and Stevie Nicks.

Zimbabwean-born, London-raised artist KYE will perform her modern take on R&B, fuelled by her formidable song writing, timeless vocals and finely curated selection of cross-genre collaborators. Apple Music highlights KYE as one of the latest ‘Australian Up Next’ artists and she’s collaborated with the likes of Sampa the Great. KYE will also take to the iconic Chapel Stage for one night only.

Vocalist John Floreani from Trophy Eyes will perform his signature highly metaphorical lyrics and melodic riffs. John Floreani is inspired by romantic tragedy and beauty in life’s most simple phenomena.

A lyrical deep dive into heartache, addiction and self-loathing, Floreani released his debut album Sin this year to a heart-warming global response along with sold out headline shows in Australia, USA and the UK. This is a special chance to get up close and personal with John Floreani at Chapel off Chapel.

City of Stonnington Mayor, Cr Kate Helysaid: “I’m thrilled that Stonnington will be hosting the So Soiree Festival, it gives the community an opportunity to come together and celebrate comedy, cabaret and circus.
