Welcome to my music blog, sakura galactic mixes! In this blog I share my mashups, edits and mixes from the past 20 plus years with little stories behind them.
I returned to home after deejaying for Sydney Mardi Gras and WorldPride. Now that the dusts have settled, it's time to share some stories from the trip and a new DJ mix with tracks that were on high rotation in my sets.
Mardi Gras and WorldPride were amazing. The whole city was buzzing and the events were very well-organized. It felt like Mardi Gras was back in full swing because the parade was back on the streets after 3 years and the festival brought the community and international visitors together without being interrupted by Covid.
My main highlights were deejaying and seeing friends I hadn't seen for years. I finally got to deejay in Sydney after 4.5 years and that felt so good. I really loved playing and watching the crowd dance in front of me with a big smile on their faces. There was so much love and positive energy. I also enjoyed hanging out and having special moments with DJs, musicians, lighting technicians at the gigs.
Pride March over Sydney Harbour Bridge was also fantastic. I had crossed the bridge on the pedestrian side before, but marching with thousands of people in solidarity for WorldPride was extra special and walking all the way to the Oxford Street party was so much fun and invigorating. I marched with 4 of my dear friends, and we took lots of photos and shared stories along the way. I will always remember this beautiful day.
