Jessica Mauboy and 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' stars headlining Sydney World Pride

A cavalcade of Australian Eurovision stars are set to be front and centre for WorldPride celebrations in Sydney next year.

Joining forces with the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in 2023, Sydney WorldPride is slated to be the world's biggest LGBTQIA+ event.

Jessica Mauboy, who represented Australia at the 2018 contest and who was an interval act at Copenhagen in 2014, has today been announced as one of the headliners of the opening concert, 'Live and Proud'.

'Eurovision - Australia Decides' alumni Electric Fields are also on the bill, which boasts homegrown pop princess Kylie Minoue and international chart-topper Charlie XCX.

Giving the night even more Eurovision flavour will be co-hosts and 'Australia Decides' icons, Courtney Act and Casey Donovan.

Australian Eurovision artists have been a fixture of recent Mardi Gras celebrations. Recent performers at the pride event include 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' contestants Vanessa Amorosi and Montaigne, who debuted her Rotterdam entry, 'Technicolour', at that year's parade.

Jessica Mauboy has also performed at Mardi Gras in years gone by.

Joel Creasey, one half of the hosting duo for 'Eurovision - Australia Decides', also took on hosting duties for the live parade broadcast in 2021.

'Eurovision - Australia Decides' production company Blink TV produced Mardi Gras coverage for SBS before the event shifted to the ABC in 2021. The concert will be broadcast live in Australian on the ABC. Tickets to the event and more information about Sydney WorldPride are on sale now.
