UK pop artist Rita Ora is set to headline the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade next month. 

Ora is currently in the country to record the upcoming season of The Voice and will now appear at the Sydney Cricket Ground for the annual event on Saturday 6 March. 

She'll be joined on the bill by the likes of Electric Fields, Montaigne and G Flip, with DJs Kitty Glitter and Dan Murphy featuring on the pre-Parade entertainment line-up. 

Bob Downe and Julie McCrossin will host the event, with Nell Schofield and Kyle Olsen to voiceover the Parade.

“The Parade is such a special event for the community,” said Mardi Gras CEO Albert Kruger. “It is a loud, proud and welcoming celebration of community spirit and connectedness.”

“The move to the SCG has presented us with a unique opportunity to add to the spectacle of the Parade with some truly awe-inspiring performances and we are thrilled to have a worldwide superstar in Rita Ora join this once-in-a-lifetime Parade. As always we have a few more surprises in store for the night, so keep an eye out."
