Over the past twelve years, Celebration NYE has welcomed thousands of wonderful LGBT+ people from all around the world. People make new friends and meet old ones again and again.

According to the City of Sydney official NYE website, over 1 million people will be crowding into the Sydney foreshore to watch this year’s fireworks. That’s literally thousands of people elbow to elbow crushed in from early afternoon to try to get a glimpse of the spectacle. Hot, sweaty, sticky bodies with eskies, chairs and children.

Event Entertainment

We had such a great time with our DJ's at last year's party, we've invited them back for another spin!

Returning for his sixth fabulous time spinning at Celebration NYE is DJ Mark Alsop MA15+. With over 30 years experience behind the decks in Australia, Mark kicks off the night with smooth cocktail sounds that morph into groovier beats as the sun sets and the night gathers round us.

Mark wil once again be joined by the equally fabulous DJ Sveta, from Russia with love. A fabulously diverse and broad DJ, Sveta has over two decades of experience around the globe. Mark and Sveta combined for an amazing tête-à-tête set that had smiles on everyone's faces!  Look out for another classic twist on our flashback sounds set!

Our DJ’s are but the tip of the iceberg, and they will be aided and abetted in their entertainment duties by the incomparable Frock Hudson (MEL) as our MC. In addition to belting out a few choice tunes during the evening,  Frock will also keep you up to date on the evening’s festivities and happenings on the harbour and the buffet! Just keep him away from the Mac and Cheese station!

"I want to say that my partner and I had a really great time at the NYE party. Everything was immaculately organised, we loved all the details. We also want to give a hostess by the name of Makayla extra credit for looking my partner who is a vegan; she looked after him well on the night..."

John, London, UK, 2019

"Being Black and visiting from the states I didn't know what to expect from the gay party scene in Australia. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the music and the pacing of the night, plus the crowd was so communal and welcoming and friendly. My partner and I felt comfortable and a part of the revelry all night. Thank you for that!"
