First Ever BridgeClimb Set to Music with Novelty Prop Karaoke for The Mardi Gras Climb 2016

From 25th February to 9th March, participants and supporters of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival can take part in the first ever BridgeClimb set to music and sport novelty retro props at the summit ready to sing karaoke on a stage like no other for The Mardi Gras Climb 2016.

Following the success of last year’s Mardi Gras Climb, which launched the karaoke machine in the sky, BridgeClimb is taking the celebrations a few steps higher with two more world firsts.

For the first time ever, the entire bucket-list journey (3hrs) will be set to music. A retro track list sounding through headphones will alternate with the customary historical facts of Sydney and its famous Bridge delivered by their Climb Leader on their ascent.

Additionally, waiting for Climbers at the summit, alongside the popular Karaoke machine of 2015, will be a novelty props box.

Climbers on The Mardi Gras Climb 2016 can don the famous headdresses while busting out moves to The Village People’s ‘YMCA’, pop on some love-heart sunglasses and swoon to Kylie’s ‘I should be so lucky’, or pull on some sweat-bands and cut their best shapes to Olivia Newton John’s ‘Let’s get physical’.

The Mardi Gras Climb karaoke suite features plasma TV screens, microphones and concert style speakers. Seven Climbers positioned opposite seven fellow Climbers will groove in a sing and dance-off with their friends dressed in the colourful novelty props at the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Mardi Gras Climbers ascend 1,002 steps, whilst passionate Climb Leaders share stories about Sydney and play tunes. They can then showcase their best dance moves to a disco beat, all captured on a complimentary 8 second video.

The 3 ½ hour route takes Climbers through the heart of the Sydney Harbour Bridge’s massive structure before summiting to the very top of the Bridge, 134 metres above sea level, where they are rewarded with a spectacular 360 degree view of the city.

BridgeClimb offers a truly memorable experience, perfect for special occasions, family adventures, team building and corporate events. Tickets for the Mardi Gras Disco Climb are currently available at or call (02) 8274 7777.
