MARDI GRAS BRINGS ‘THE PARTY’ LIKE NEVER BEFORE
Icons, killer DJs, awe-inspiring performances and a sea of glitter – are just some of what festivalgoers can expect when the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras presents the return of the iconic Mardi GrasParty on March 1 2014, following the world’s biggest, and most iconic, night time parade.
First release tickets for the Party went on sale at 9am today, with the event promising a wild, sexy and outlandish lineup of Australian and international DJs, extravagant shows, fabulous outfits and palpable party spaces.
Pump up the jam and keep your heels below eight inches because this is going to be one celebration to remember!
The first international headliner announced for the Party is globetrotting New York DJ Kim Ann Foxman, who will bring her unique brand of soulful house to Sydney on the back of a hugely successful international tour, which included sellout shows in Japan, Cologne and Chicago.
The former Hercules and Love Affair member will spin her singles CREATURE and RETURN IT as well as a raft of mixes on the night, ensuring that no partygoer goes home without breaking a sweat and busting out some serious moves!
Up-and-coming Australian DJ Dan Slater will keep bodies moving and fists pumping with a killer set of dance tunes and remixes, honed to perfection over the course of his recently completed European tour. Dan kicked off his DJ career as a winner of the Mardi Gras DJ Spin-Off Competition, resulting in him spinning at the 2012 Mardi Gras Party – and he’s ready to show Sydneysiders just how far he’s come!
Making her Mardi Gras debut will be festival-circuit regular Yo! M.A.F.I.A. The self-proclaimed sneaker freak and Hip Hop junkie has been killing it on the wheels of steel for over 15 years, DJing with a slew of international acts including Iggy Azalea, Missy Elliot and Lady Gaga. Indeed, she’s guaranteed to make the crowd go “gaga” when she brings her diverse mix of Hip Hop, R&B, Booty Bass, Electro and House to the dance floor at Sydney’s one and only party!
More fabulous additions to the Party lineup will be announced over the coming months, but diehard partygoers best get in fast! There is a limited allocation of tickets available at the first release price, and with so much more to come, you’d be mad to miss out!
The Mardi Gras Party is a fundraiser for the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade and Festival.
