Unveiling its full Festival Guide of more than 300 events, international pop superstar Charli XCX is joining the line-up of stars performing at Live and Proud: Sydney World Pride Opening Concert on Friday 24 February 2023.

Mauboy and Minogue will also perform at the official Opening Concert, hosted by Courtney Act and Casey Donovan.


Kelly Rowland has also been confirmed to headline Domain Dance Party, an open-air dance event curated by DJ Dan Slater. An incredible line-up of local and international DJs has also been confirmed, including DJ Suri and Isis Muretech.

Sydney World Pride Chief Executive, Kate Wickett, said the festival will include an extraordinary array of free and ticketed experiences.

“From concerts to parties, theatre, sports and family events, so no matter your interests or budget, you are invited to Sydney WorldPride,” Wickett said.

“The first World Pride in the Southern Hemisphere is a significant moment for both for the LGBTQIA+ community in Australia and Sydney. Now is the time to get ready for the global LGBTQIA+ reunion we’ve all been waiting for.”

The Sydney World Pride festival is the largest LGBQTIA+ event ever held in the region, with 17 days of activities spanning 30 Official major events, 68 curated WorldPride Arts experiences, 17 World Pride Sports events and 192 Pride Amplified community events.
