Posted on 5 Feb 2019

Brighton Pride have announced Kylie Minogue as their Saturday headline act for this year's festival. This follows on from yesterday's announcement that Grace Jones is to perform at Pride Sunday's LoveBN1fest  with Jessie J headlining on the Sunday night.

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn uprising that ignited the Pride movement with this in mind Brighton Pride have announced that their 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”.
 
Brighton Pride have also announced today that Clean Bandit are joining the 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.
 
More artists and a schedule will appear on the Brighton Pride website over the coming weeks.
