For eight years, circuit party Daywash has been providing Sydney a space for the gay community to come together and celebrate. And their annual Mardi Gras event has become a party institution, attracting thousands of revellers eager to cap off their gay pride festivities with a bang. Held the day after the Mardi Gras Parade and Party – this year, it’s on Sunday, March 5 – it’s the perfect way to end the summer season on a high.
For party producer Johan Khoury, it’s an immense honour to still be able to host an event that continues to connect with partygoers.
“It’s so exciting for the whole Daywash team to be a part of such an amazing weekend in Sydney,” Khoury tells. “Daywash has been such a crowd pleaser for so many locals, interstate and international guests following the Mardi Gras after-party for a number of years. We get excited by the fact that people still love our parties and still support our DJs music, shows, and antics.”
A big part of Daywash’s attraction is its theme and this Mardi Gras, they’re inviting attendees to unleash their imagination.
“This coming party is every boy's wet dream – to be surrounded by hundreds of men in uniform! Our Uniform Salute party is about living out your wildest fantasies, dressed in your hottest uniform. Whether that’s a sexy cop, hot army dude, muscle-bound fireman or pleasing-on-the-eye paramedic – it’s entirely up to you and your fantasy to be fulfilled.”
Daywash has assembled one of this best DJ line-ups yet with a string of international DJs including Joelby (UK), Shigeki (Singapore), Dan Darlington (NYC) and Mike Kelly (GER). They are backed up by a strong contingent of local stars including DJs Mickey, JimJam, Brett Austin, Murray Hood, Division 4, Sveta, Jimmy Dee, Neil Hume, Matt Green, DJ Anvi, Craig Hemphill and Paul Watson.
Entertainment in front of the decks is being ramped up too with shows live performances by an electronic violinist accompanying a DJ set, steamy production shows and roving uniformed men.
“Just enjoy Sydney and all it has to offer on the amazing Mardi Gras weekend and when you get to the front door of Daywash on the Sunday, realise your party is just beginning,” Khoury says. “Explore every room and everybody and let us totally entertain you with the awesome Daywash fun! And as I always say, ‘Get lost in all the different rooms, enjoy it and lose youself’.”
