The first-ever Australian edition of WorldPride has expanded, with a number of names added to the Sydney event’s program. Scheduled for Sunday, 5th March, 2023, the Rainbow Republic closing concert will feature Peach PRC and G Flip, with the latter co-hosting the event. The event will also feature the Australian debut of US indie-pop trio MUNA.
Hosted by Keiynan Lonsdale at The Domain, Rainbow Republic is a “seven-hour queer megamix of live music, DJs and dancing” and will also feature Perth electro-pop artist Alter Boy, BVT, Vetta Borne, and more.
Peach PRC – ‘Forever Drunk’
“I am stoked to be co-hosting and performing,” G Flip said in a statement. “I’m from Melbourne and identify as non-binary so just the fact that WorldPride is in Australia is exciting. I’m so honoured to be a part of celebrating Pride – it’s going to be epic!”
The Sydney edition of WorldPride was first announced back in 2019, with the Sydney Gay And Lesbian Mardi Gras beating out cities such as Montreal and Houston to host the event in 2023. Last month, it was announced that Kylie Minogue will headline the Live and Proud: Sydney WorldPride Opening Concert on Friday, 24th February.
Sydney WorldPride 2023 will run from Friday, 17th February through Sunday, 5th March. The full program is scheduled to arrive in November.
