The team will be celebrating the LGBTQIA+’s night of nights from the Sydney Cricket Ground, between 7pm and 10pm, via FM radio, the triple j app, and the triple j website.

The broadcast will be hosted by the station’s Tyrone Pynor (featured image, left) and Abby Butler (right), and will cover the floats, the fanfare and all the fun.

Triple j’s Latifa Tee will also be jumping on the decks to bring listeners a playlist of party tunes, queer anthems, and hot tracks by up-and-coming artists.

Furthermore, a selection of LGBTQIA+ musicians and icons will be joining the broadcast to wish listeners a happy Mardi Gras.

The youth station also announced it will be celebrating Mardi Gras season all week across the triple j, Double J and triple j Unearthed stations.
