With the incredible Sydney fireworks show being the highlight of the night, we compliment this visual show with some of Sydney’s best DJ’s, and some camp cabaret sprinkled throughout the night.

Event Entertainment

The view is not the only entertainment on the night!

We have the best queer DJ's and performers for you! Returning for his seventh 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.

Joining Mark, is the equally fabulous DJ Nate. One of the most exciting DJs on the Sydney scene today, Nate is a sought-after DJ, known for his genre-bending house sets that blend disco, deep, funky, tech, and big-room vocal house.

Our DJ’s will combine for an amazing tête-à-tête set that will put a smile on your face!  Look out for a 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.

Summer Love!
"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!"

American Guest, 2019
