The headline artist for Pride in the Park on Saturday 3rd August is Miss Kylie Minogue, a true icon and ally of the LGBT community who is also celebrating her 5th decade.
In her first ever full UK Pride performance, Kylie will be bringing a very special Pride show to celebrate this iconic anniversary of the Pride movement.
With record sales in excess of 70 million, a back catalogue that includes 14 albums and singles like ‘Better the Devil You Know’, ‘Wow’, ‘Get Outta My Way’, ‘On a Night Like This’, ‘I Believe in You’, ‘Shocked’, ‘All the Lovers’ and the career-defining ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’, from soulful ballads to dance-pop anthems, Kylie has been embraced by queer fans for more than 30 years and has produced the soundtrack to many of our lives.
But, as the consummate Showgirl, it is for her live shows with glittering production that Kylie is best known. Kylie has played mega arenas like the O2, Hyde Park, Sydney’s Mardi Gras and the Olympic closing ceremony and picked up an OBE for services to music on the way as well as the Order of Arts and Letters from the French government for her “contribution to the enrichment of French culture” and has this year been made an Officer of the Order (AO) of Australia for “distinguished service to the performing arts as a national and international recording artist and entertainer”.
The term ‘legend’ is far too readily bandied around these days, but Kylie is truly deserving of the title and we can’t wait to welcome her to Brighton for a full show packed with all the hits.
We are also thrilled to announce Clean Bandit are joining our stellar line up for the main stage at Pride In The Park, part of the Brighton & Hove Pride Festival, on Saturday 3rd August 2019.
From their origins as part of a string quartet, Clean Bandit have consistently pushed the boundaries of modern pop with a diverse blend of electronic, dancehall, classical, R&B and pop. Breakthrough success came in 2014 with the single ‘Rather Be’, feat. Jess Glynne, a Grammy award-winning worldwide hit that has now surpassed 10 million global sales.
Further success came with their 10 million-selling single ‘Rockabye’ feat. Sean Paul and Anne Marie shooting to #1 in over 40 countries. Their last single “Solo” feat. Demi Lovato has recently been nominated for two Brit Awards. The band have now notched up 9 UK top five singles, more than Bruno Mars or Adele.
LoveBN1Fest, the Pride Sunday In The Park on Sunday 4th August 2019, is all set for another spectacular festival with the announcment of not one, but two, legendary headliners.
First up is the sensational Jessie J. With her deep, soulful vocals and a sharp pop sense, Jessie has had a trio of U.K. Top Five albums – Who You Are, Alive, and Sweet Talker – as well as chart-topping singles including “Price Tag,” “Domino,” “Bang Bang,” and the brilliant “LaserLight,” featuring David Guetta.
As well as global success with millions of record sales, Jessie is known for show-stopping performances in front of a global audience of billions at the London Olympics, Glastonbury festival and the Diamond Jubilee Concert as well as a full-blown Saturday night prime-time TV career as a judge on The Voice.
Also taking to the stage at the UK’s biggest Pride Festival is iconic supermodel, Studio 54 superstar and muse to Andy Warhol, Grace Jones, who has lived the life most people only dream of. From a string of dance club hits like “I Need A Man”, “La Vie En Rose”, “My Jamaican Guy” and “Love on Top of Love (Killer Kiss)” produced by C&C Music Factory to the critically acclaimed albums “Warm Leatherette”, “Nightclubbing” and “Slave to the Rhythm”, her voice and the anthems are as ingrained in our memories as the strong female roles she created opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in ‘Conan’ and Roger Moore in James Bond’s ‘A View To A Kill’.
She has headlined almost every major festival across the word, has created more iconic ‘looks’ that amost anyone alive and famously hula-hooped at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations. Prepare to scream “heeerrrrreee’s Grace!”
LoveBN1Fest is all set to turn Sunday In The Park in to the most spectacular community and family festival.
More artists and a schedule will appear on the Brighton Pride website over the coming weeks.
