It’s Sydney’s most popular LGBTI event, and here’s all the info you need to know about what’s happening at Victoria Park this Sunday 12 February as our communities come out to picnic and play.
Featuring a rip-roaring line-up of programmed entertainment, the best in local and international delicacies, more than 200 stalls to browse at, refreshing bars, rides to thrill and games suitable for the whole family, Fair Day is truly a day for the whole rainbow family.
All we need to keep our fingers crossed for is sunny weather – there’s a possibility of showers, but at least it won’t be uncomfortably stinkin’ hot like last year’s Fair Day.
Setting the main stage (presented by ANZ) alight will be a line-up of hot Australian talent, including the impressive voice of Sydney singer-song writer Maxine Kauter, whose mellow and enchanting sounds will enrapture Fair Day attendees. Rising star and Triple J host Brendan Maclean will also appear on the Main Stage, with a performance that will demonstrate the raw talent that has seen him snapped up for Baz Luhrmann’s remake of The Great Gatsby.
Sarah McLeod, the former frontwoman of ARIA winning rock band The Superjesus, has now been added to the line-up for Fair Day. She will be performing at the Main Stage and we think her acoustic tunes will be perfect for the relaxed Fair Day atmosphere.
Powerhouse singer Mary Kiani will appear ahead of her album launch taking place later in the Sydney Mardi Gras season. The Newtown based Scottish singing sensation will excite and inspire, wowing the crowds with a big personality and an even bigger voice.
The Mardi Gras will also welcome some of our much-loved community groups to the main stage, including the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir and the NSW Police Band.
