2Sydney Dance Company's Nude Performance (Australia)
As part of the Sydney Festival in January 2017, the dance company performed choreography inspired by the Art Gallery of New South Wales' summer show Nude: Art from the Tate Collection. With ticket sales selling slowly, "nude-only" shows were added to the bill and seats sold out within a day.
The show, choreographed by Rafael Bonachela, catered to nudists, or audience members brave enough to bare all. The only rules—no clothes and you had to be over 18. (Source)

The idea for the event came from the fourth-generation owner of the bath, Yuichi Tamura, 36, as an effort to preserve the culture of the public bathhouse for the next generation. Tuition for classes is included in the price of using the bath (about ¥460), and class registration can be carried out on the school's Facebook page. (Source)
4Summer of Love Parade (U.S.)
Wacky hats graced the heads of many participants, but that was the only item of clothing to be seen, with the exception of the fully clothed passersby and citizen photographers.
The event was organized by nude activist Gypsy Taub, one of the figures on the forefront of the opposition to San Francisco's nudity ban, which was enacted in 2012. Taub gave a speech to the small crowd, officially dedicating the festivities to the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and the "spiritual awakening of unprecedented proportions" it ushered into San Francisco.
