“Nicole Scherzinger’s performances are always electric and she is sure to raise the temperature at this sizzling beach party,” Wickett said.

“Bondi Beach Party will be a uniquely Australian experience. I’m particularly pleased Sydney WorldPride will be showcasing an all-Australian DJ line-up, sharing the sound of Australia’s club scene with the world.”
