Every year, one of the most unmissable events on the Mardi Gras calendar is the Sissy Ball. Taking over Sydney Town Hall on Saturday, February 24, the shindig will transport you to a dance floor inspired by NYC's legendary ballroom scenes.

Spend the night making shapes to a 'disco-house-bounce-pop' soundtrack and watching an epic vogue championship, which will see entrants compete across nine categories, including Sex Siren, Hands, Face, Realness and Trans Man Best Dressed.

Godmother of Australian Ballroom, Kilia, is returning this year as curator, with a lineup of beloved ballroom figures coming together to judge, alongside Jack Mizrahi and Jamaica Moana who will be delivering high voltage rapid-fire commentary.

In charge of the tunes for the night will be MikeQ, a legendary producer and DJ within the ballroom community who was even sampled on Beyonce's Renaissance, plus Brisbane-based superstar Neesha Alexander.

You can check out the full lineup Sissy Ball via the Mardi Gras Instagram. First and second release dance floor tickets are sold out, so act quick if you want to secure your spot.
