The BIGGEST Gay Party in The World – Sydney Gay LGBT Mardis Gras

While America
and Europe 
are freeeeezing…..

Things are hotter than ever in Australia, as anticipation builds for the 2010 Sydney Gay Mardis Gras!

More than 80 events that span about 3 weeks! With the majority of the highlights taking place the weekends of  the 27th February and 6th of March.

Outdoor  picnics, dance festivals, John Waters, Whitney Houston in concert, film festivals, Harbour Party, and of course the BIG PARADE with over 100,000 participants!

Mardi Gras knows how to go out with a bang, and in 2010 they are  saving the best for last. Sheer queer glamour and unforgettable party mayhem explode over four spectacular venues at the Entertainment Quarter for an all-night, dance-til-dawn fiesta that’s unrivalled worldwide. 20,000 people are expected!

Every year there is usually a  famous celebrity to lead the parade. This year is the one and only  AMANDA LEPORE! “I’m thrilled and honoured to be invited to be Chief of Parade,” said Lepore in a statement released today. “I can’t wait to be part of the Mardi Gras and celebrations of our community,” she said.

Mardi Gras Party is your wildest night of the year, and 2010 is no exception. Apart from our frenetic lasers, our gorgeous design and the beautiful party people, the DJ line-up is set to treat you to such an aurally delicious and irresistible night that you’ll never leave the dancefloor.

Legendary French house DJ and producer David Guetta will keep you dancing – plus
DJ Carl Cox. Voted No.1 DJ of the past 25 years   by MixMag and No.1 DJ in the world by DJ Magazine, his night Carl Cox & Friends has been held in Space Ibiza and Heaven London alongside Freemasons, Fatboy Slim and Pendulum.
