Acts to see at Sydney Mardi Gras 2023

Performing at Mardi Gras Party is none other than UK chart-toppers Sugababes, who are returning to Australia for the first time in over two decades with their original line-up of Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy. Fresh off their latest release The Lost Tapes, these era-defying British sensations have six Number One UK singles, millions of global sales, and multiple multi-platinum albums under their belts, and are known for their smooth vocals and magical harmonies offset by garage and alternative soundscapes.

Experience the electric energy of one Swedish pop music’s hottest stars, as spiritual disco diva Agnes takes the stage at Mardi Gras Party 2023. With chart-topping new tracks like “Fingers Crossed” and “Love and Appreciation” that have been dominating dancefloors, and fan favourite “Release Me” that’s a staple at LGBTQIA+ nightclubs worldwide, Agnes is sure to bring an unforgettable performance to the party.

In addition to the performances by the Sugababes and Agnes, Mardi Gras Party 2023 will also feature the Mardi Gras Midnight Show, a tribute to the colourful history of the Sydney Drag and Showgirls scene and Priscilla Queen of the Desert, celebrating 30-years since it was filmed. The 2023 Party will see the return of the iconic I Am What I Am show. Traditionally performed every 10 years, the special Sydney WorldPride edition will feature Electric Fields and First Nations drag icons who will perform a specially recorded cover of the song featuring First Nations Language.
