Sydney World Pride surprise – Ava Max to perform!

Ava Max Pride LGBT singer

Just when you thought this season’s Sydney World Pride and annual Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras celebration couldn’t get larger, think again!

Ava Max has recently announced she will perform in Sydney’s open air knoll that is The Domain, right in the heart of town, as part of the epic line-up at the official closing concert Rainbow Republic presented by Optus at The Domain on Sunday 5 March 2023.

The event will be Ava Max’s first public performance in Australia, and her only Australian appearance this summer.

And if that’s not enough, G Flip and Keiynan Lonsdale will co-host Rainbow Republic and perform at the seven-hour closing concert at The Domain, as Sydney hands to baton to the WorldPride 2025 host city Washington DC. Ava Max and Kim Petras are appearing exclusively at Rainbow Republic.

Sydney WorldPride has started and runs for 17 days. To mark the start of the festival, for one-night only, the Sydney Opera House will be lit up with the Pride Progress Flag tonight as part of the #RainbowCity public art project.

Final tickets to Rainbow Republic presented by Optus are available now at
