Proud 2017: Party at the End of the Parade!


Auckland Pride's official closing celebration goes global in 2017, with an international cast of party superstars jetting in from LA, Melbourne, and London!

Featuring the first ever New Zealand performance by SEXSHOOTERS, direct from London and pants down the hottest DJ duo on the planet! David Hart and Claudio Girardi have worked dance floors in the world’s largest clubs and parties with their notoriously high-energy, sexually charged, uplifting Tech, Tribal and Progressive House sound.

Also coming to Auckland for the first time, Melbourne-based DJ and sneaker freak YO! MAFIA will be spinning her signature genre-smashing mash-up of Hip Hop, R&B, Electro, House, Cock Rock, Booty Bass and everything in-between!

And our third New Zealand virgin is none other than the immaculate Courtney Act! Flying in from Los Angeles, the star of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be performing the main show at PROUD 2017.

Following the Auckland Pride Parade on Ponsonby Road, continue around the bend to K' Road – the heart of Auckland's queer nightlife – for the biggest LGBTIQ+ party of the year, incorporating all levels of the indoor Studio super-club, plus an outdoor Galatos Street party.
