A sea of red dresses will fill Frew Park in Milton this year, for “The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever.”



Every year, in July, multiple cities around the world pay homage to Kate Bush’s iconic 1978 hit song, “Wuthering Heights,” which catapulted her to stardom.

The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever” has become a beloved tradition. With its unique concept, the event pays homage to Kate Bush’s iconic 1978 hit song, “Wuthering Heights,” which catapulted her to stardom.

The music video for the song, featuring the singer frolicking in a red dress in a field, has become etched in the minds of fans.

On Saturday, the 29th of July 2023, at 2:00 p.m., participants will gather to re-enact the famous music video, all decked out in red frocks, whilst raising funds for DVConnect, a not-for-profit telephone crisis intervention service for those affected by domestic or family violence in Queensland.

The inspiration for “The Most Wuthering Heights Day Ever” originated in Brighton, UK, when a group called Shambush gathered 300 Kate Bush enthusiasts in a field. Since then, the event has grown in popularity and has found a dedicated following in Brisbane, thanks to Kristian’s passion for retro music and unique experiences.

The event welcomes everyone, regardless of their familiarity with Bush’s music, extending an invitation to women, men, and children alike.

In the spirit of giving back, all attendees are requested to donate on the day. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to DVConnect, providing vital support to those impacted by domestic or family violence in Queensland.



Kristian Fletcher, the event’s organizer, has been hosting Kate Bush events in Brisbane since 2003, and he is thrilled to continue the tradition whilst supporting a worthy cause. 

The singer, also known for hits like “Running Up That Hill” and “Babooshka,” continues to resonate with fans around the globe. With her songs transcending generations, the event celebrates her artistry and provides a joyous gathering for enthusiasts.
