Counting down to World Pride in Sydney
World Pride 2023 will be hosted by Sydney, taking the annual Mardi Gras celebrations next-level.
As part of the week-long festival, party promoters Daywash will present six official Pride events including Candyland XXL and the Circuit Festival Waterpark Day at Raging Waters amusement park.
“Daywash parties are always over-the-top spectaculars but in celebration of Sydney’s World Pride, we are going even bigger and better than ever before…” says event producer Johan Khoury. “We are also partnering with the largest international circuit festivals to produce a week unlike anything anyone has seen.”
The Daywash events kick off Sunday, February 26 with São Paulo’s Guapo Fiesta. This opening party will take place at The Argyle, and the DJ line-up will feature Rafael Berreto and Mario Backman.
On Monday, February 27, partygoers will gather at The Ivy for Candyland XXL, the week’s first outdoor afternoon event. Candyland is a signature Daywash party. For World Pride, partygoers will be treated to an XXL dose of the event. DJs will include Dani Toro and Jose Rendon.
The party picks up again Thursday, March 2 with an appearance by Diego Barros at Anaconda. The night will feature two nude performances by Barrios, and beats from Rafael Barreto.
On Friday March 3, Daywash partners with Matinée, to host the Daywash Circuit Festival Waterpark Party. Taking place at the Raging Waters amusement park in Sydney, the entire park will be closed to the public and open exclusively for Daywash attendees. DJs Phil Romano and Dani Toro will headline the main stage.
The Friday fun continues when Daywash and Matinée regroup for a second adventure, The Temple of La Lecha White Party. DJs Kingstone and Liza Rodriguez take over the indoor and outdoor stages.
Saturday, March 4 will be an Arabian Night in Sydney when Kinselas hosts the “Club Arak” party.
Sunday is fun day when daddies, leather men, shirtless boys, bearded hotties and everything in-between converge at the RAM party. Hosted by Daddy Ersin, RAM was born and bred in NYC’s underground club scene and has toured the biggest gay cities around the world.
The week wraps on Monday, March 6, with the Kiki Gay Pool Party Finale, taking place at The Ivy pool.
