“I think they’re called Denim.”
Kate Moss

“Denim steal the show.”
Evening Standard

“Denim…..beyond imagination, humorous, glamorous, enormous. Modern and refreshing.”
Michael Howells

“From a galaxy far far away, Glamrou and her Denim Queens are hurtling towards VAULT Festival at the speed of light…

With the ongoing destruction of equal rights, safe spaces and queer haunts all around the world, Planet Earth will soon become inhospitable for the Denim Queens and their non-conformist belief system. There is no alternative but to achieve interstellar travel for all and find a new planet to call home.

How will they do this? In the only way they know how… Using the powers of pop stardom, intergalactic sketch comedy, over-the-top costume changes, and very big wigs.”

“Drag supergroup DENIM were established by lead performer Glamrou  (Amrou Al-Kadhi) at Cambridge University in 2010.

DENIM was the university’s first and only professional drag troupe, watched and celebrated by thousands of students over the years.

Since then, the DENIM girl band and their unique take on drag have been watched and appreciated by thousands, touring across the UK. They have performed with Florence & The Machine live onstage at Glastonbury.

The troupe is led by five singers and actors – The Denims; Glamrou La Denim, Crystal Vaginova, Electra Cute, Shirley Du Naughty & Aphrodite Jones.

Here at Vault, DENIM invite the audience to revel in the liberation of their performances – a vibrant carousel of twisted pop classics and original songs interspersed with cyber-space sketch comedy.

Proudly sponsored by MAC and Bumble Style, DENIM won’t disappoint when it comes to jaw-dropping, razor-sharp looks. That’s a DENIM guarantee!

The Denims have received praise from several cultural figures including Simon Amstell, Florence Welch, Keira Knightly, Mario Testino, Ian McKellen, and Stephen Fry who has tweeted that drag troupe DENIM are “fighting bigotry.”
