With just 100 days until the southern hemisphere’s largest Pride festival kicks off Charli XCX, Kelly Rowland, and Jessica Mauboy have been announced to join Kylie Minogue at Sydney WorldPride.

Organisers of the festival unveiled the complete Festival Guide yesterday at Sydney’s iconic Bondi beach, with more than 300 events being confirmed, including international pop superstar Charli XCX for the Sydney WorldPride Opening Concert on Friday, 24 February 2023.

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


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

Speaking at the Bondi event, Sydney WorldPride Chief Executive, Kate Wickett, said the festival would include a massive list 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 WorldPride 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 WorldPride Sports events and 192 Pride Amplified community events.
