The Mardi Gras Party is Australia’s most treasured LGBTQI Party! 2020 will see Mardi Gras transform The Hordern Pavilion and surrounding areas into a brand-new adult play land, bursting with music, light and performance across new fantasy worlds. Joyous vibes post-Parade 2020 will bring our communities together in this multi-sensory feast.

Last week’s hotly anticipated release of her brand new adrenalin fuelled dancefloor anthem “Don’t Start Now” from Dua Lipa shooting straight to number one on the worldwide iTunes chart was only topped by the announcement tonight that Sydney will see the electric Dua Lipa headline the leap year Mardi Gras Party after the iconic parade. Having sold over 40 million singles globally, it’s clear that her dizzying ascent to superstardom has only just begun.

Dua Lipa has established herself as a glittering force in pop music, with her chart topping single “New Rules”, and a host of hits including “Be The One”, “Hotter Than Hell”, “Scared To Be Lonely” (with Martin Garrix), “One Kiss” (with Calvin Harris) and “IDGAF” dominating airwaves and filling dancefloors across the globe.

Having rapidly ascended the upper echelons of the music industry since her 2015 debut, Dua Lipa has already amassed an impressive repertoire of accolades including: Most streamed album by a female artist on Spotify, most streamed artist in the UK in 2017, three BRITS, two Grammys and the title of youngest Female solo artist in Youtube history to reach one billion views with hit single “New Rules”.

Dua will be joined by a smorgasbord of eccentric and extraordinary performers and DJs from home and abroad who will fill the atmosphere with pulsing techno, tantalizing house and euphoric gay anthems till the early hours.
