Sophie Ellis-Bextor Is Headlining The Mardi Gras Bondi Beach Party

Events, Play, Sydney / 15 February 2024

You won’t want to get away from this dance floor!

If you hadn’t listened to Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s pop-dance hit Murder on the Dancefloor 20 years ago, you most definitely would have heard it in the last few months. The viral hit shot to the top of the charts after appearing in the end scene of Saltburn and has reignited disco fever among the masses, resulting in the queen of dance appearing as the headliner for beach party-goers at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Bondi Beach Party.

For those who lived through the early 2000s, Ellis-Bextor’s music was the soundtrack to a golden age of pop. From the pulsing beats of “Get Over You” to the sultry groove of “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love),” her songs were synonymous with carefree nights out and endless singalongs. But her appeal transcends generations. Her infectious energy and powerful vocals have captivated audiences for decades, and her recent TikTok reign proves that good pop music never truly dies.
