WERRRK.com has proudly partnered up with the Austin International Drag Festival this year and we have been given the privilege of announcing this year’s headliners first! We are so excited about being a part of this amazing event this year and we cannot wait to bring you all the fabulous drag artists that are going to be headlining this year!
We are very excited to announce that Alexis Bevels will be headlining the Austin International Drag Festival this year! (Get your tickets here and join us in Austin this fall!)
Congratulations on being named a headliner Alexis! How did you get involved with the Austin International Drag Festival and what do you bring to this role?
This will be my second year coming to the Austin International Drag Festival my first time being last year as the winner of season 1 of Camp Wannakiki! I’m absolutely thrilled to be back and performing in my home state! I was born and raised in Texas and I cherish any chance I get to come back!
For those people living under a rock, can you tell us a little bit about Alexis Bevels’ style of drag?
I’m a classic song and dance gal with a quirky modern twist. Kinda like that feeling you get when you see Martha Stewart hanging out with Snoop Dogg. I do it all – sing/ dance/ act (foolishly)/ tell jokes (that only I laugh at) and I’m consistent. You’ll always find me at the nearest taco place after a performance.
We can’t wait to see what you are planning on bringing to the stage in Austin! Can you give the us a little tease of what’s to come this fall in Texas?
I’ll absolutely be bringing my classic Alexis flavor. A little bit of Broadway with a dash of “wait, what did I just watch?” But I can’t wait to show you all how I’ve grown!
