Mardi Gras Party
Time Out says
Keep the joy going at this dazzling post-parade party
After the last glitter-covered punter has danced their way to the end of the Mardi Gras Parade route, the best place to keep that big loving energy going is at the official Mardi Gras Party. The huge celebration will take over Hordern Pavilion from 11pm, so slug some Gatorade and keep on dancing long after the festivities on Oxford Street have come to an end.
This year’s party has bagged some major headliners with dance commander Kesha joining British pop sensation Dua Lipa.
The party don’t start til she walks in, and Kesha will have the crowd going off with her slew of hits that shaped the 2010s like ‘Tik Tok’, ‘Take it Off’ and ‘Blow’ along with her emotional 2017 comeback track ‘Praying’ and her anticipated upcoming album High Road, which is due out in January. Dua Lipa has got new rules and she’ll count ’em as she graces revellers with bangers like ‘New Rules’ and ‘Don’t Start Now’ fresh from smashing out some massive performances at international awards shows including our own 2019 ARIA Awards.
This year’s party promises to shake up old traditions while preserving what makes Mardi Gras so special, with Hordern Pavilion and surrounding venues being transformed into a massive adult fantasy land bustling with music, lights and performances from local and international DJs and artists until the wee hours of the following morning. This party always sells out – we hope you’re somewhere praying (that you’ll get a ticket).
