Freemasons Headline Soho Live’s GaydarRadio Main Stage
The Freemasons have confirmed they will perform exclusively on the GaydarRadio main stage during this year’s Soho Live in Soho Square on the 13th September 2009. Soho Live is a collaboration between the Edge Bar and the team that brought you Camp Gaydar. The event welcomes home Londoners returning to the Capital after their summer of circuit parties, pride events and beach resort holidays.
Returning to Soho amongst the many attractions is Camp Gaydar as Soho Square goes bling with glitz and glamour flown in from Vegas. Let Showgirls and Caesar’s little helpers show you around your new playground with the chance to try your luck on the Gaydar Wheel of Fortune. Bring your camera and have your photo taken with Vegas celebrities or ask your friends to be witness to your shot-gun wedding at the Little Church of Hook-Ups.
What happens in Camp Gaydar stays in Camp Gaydar!
The new Soho Live event will be an annual excuse to have a party, shutting down the streets to traffic and bringing together Soho’s bars and businesses, scene socialites, clubs and new additions from the fashion and sports communities. QSoft Consulting Ltd, owners of Gaydar and GaydarRadio has formed a joint venture with The Edge Bar (Soho Square) to deliver the event. The Edge will be responsible for logistics while Gaydar will be responsible for marketing and generating sponsorship for the event.
