READ: What’s On In March For All You Last Minute Planners
March seems to be the months of liberation, music and nudity. We’re not complaining! Here’s what you should be attending this March.
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras
The night of all nights - Mardi Gras parade! This year’s theme ‘fearless’ will honour the LGBTQUI trail blazers as hundreds of thousands of people flock to the streets of Oxford and Flinders street to celebrate equality, strength, diversity and pride. The night consists of a diverse and exciting lineup of events, including the famous post-parade party.
The celebrations will be held at the Entertainment Quarter from 10pm and includes ten live shows, 20 DJ sets and five dance areas. The Hordern Pavilion will also be hosting a grunge/glamour event dedicated to Berlin’s nightclub scene. Whatever event you attend, this is one of our favourite events of the year and we are beyond keen to get celebrating!
When - Saturday, March 2nd
Where - Parade kicks off on Oxford Street from 7pm
RUFUS DU SOL
If you didn’t get to see these guys earlier in the year, head online and book yourself some last minute tickets to their upcoming gig in Wollongong. As part of the Solace Australian tour, one of their biggest Aussie tours yet, RUFUS DU SOL are touted as the Aussie live music event of the year.
The Solace tour showcases a revamped visual setup and new gear to amplify their new and classic hits. Check out the details below for more info.
Following a string of amazing shows across the country, including Lost Picnic, Origin Fields, Pineapple Fields and Beyond The Valley, Tash Sultana embarked on a national tour to celebrate the debut of her album, Flow State. Having blessed the ears of concert goers in Adelaide and Hobart, Tash is coming to Sydney for the weekend.
Plus, the supporting act is none other than Triple J Hottest 100 winners, Ocean Alley. This is going to be a hell-of-a-concert!

World Naked Bike Ride
The idea of sitting on a hard bike seat, completely nude and riding around Sydney is not our idea of a great time, but then again, we probably shouldn’t knock it till we try it. So if you’re looking to broaden your...ahem...horizons, whack on a helmet, drop your dackers and straddle that bike seat.
The bike ride is a triple threat when it comes to it’s awareness message. The nudie ride is not only about body positivity, but also about environmental sustainability and raising awareness around bike safety. The whole naked part might distract drivers and in turn create an unsafe environment for bike riders…. Attendance is free so why not grab your bike, forget your clothing and burn some cals for a good cause.
Spend the perfect Saturday afternoon on the Harbour courtesy of The Hampton’s. This beautiful, newly launched boat is the perfect setting for an intimate afternoon waterside with a close-knit group of mates.
