With the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras officially kicking off on Valentine’s Day, the famous Fair Day returns to picturesque Victoria Park this weekend.
Sydney’s most vibrant free LGBTIQ community event of the season promises an all-day rainbow adventure for the whole family this Sunday 16 February.
Presented in partnership with ANZ, Fair Day 2020 will proudly showcase up-and-coming queer performers who are redefining the Australian music landscape and bringing LGBTIQ voices and stories to the forefront of the industry.
Hosted by Faustina Agolley and Felicia Foxx, this year’s ANZ Main Stage lineup will see performances from trailblazing queer hip hop artists Jess B, JamarzOnMarz, and Jamaica Moana and Hoodzy.
Fair Day guests will be treated to electric live sets from Ngaiire, Bec Sandridge, Architects of Sound, and Huntly, plus sets from beloved community DJs Division 4, Danielle Rizk, and Victoria Anthony.
Over 80,000 revellers are expected to enjoy the summer sunshine with a picnic, shopping at the community stalls for festival outfits, and joining the fun and games in the Sports Village.
Something is on offer for everyone – including fur babies, who can strut their stuff at the world-famous Doggywood competition.
Fair Day will run from 10 am to 9 pm on Sunday 16 February at Victoria Park in Broadway, with free entry for everyone.
This year’s Fair Day afterparty promises to be a huge one, with Pavlovabar: Mardi Gras edition offering a debaucherous little slice of New York City in Sydney for one night only.
Curated by queer institution House of Mince, this decadent party will bring the hedonistic electronics of the world to Pavlovabar, which occupies a vital place in the diverse tapestry of the city’s nightlife.
The afterparty will run from 9 pm to 3 am on Sunday 16 February at the Seymour Centre, Chippendale.
Tickets are available online now.
