Girls Aloud, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Mika, Billy Porter & More To Headline Brighton Pride

The gays are rejoicing, because the hugely popular Brighton Pride event took to social media on Thursday (29 February) to announce its headline acts, which include Girls Aloud as its festival exclusive, as well as Eurovision legend Mika.

The 2024 edition of the festival is set to be held at Preston Park in Brighton and will span across two days, Sautrday August 3 and Sunday August 4. It will also be raising funds for LGBTQ+ charities, including Brighton Rainbow Fund, the Pride Social Impact Fund, Pride Cultural Development Fund and Pride Solidarity Fund.

Today (February 29), the first run of artists set to perform at this year’s instalment have been announced, including the two artists set to be headlining across the weekend.

In a UK festival exclusive, Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberly Walsh will be performing as the headliners for the Saturday as part of Girls Aloud. The shows come ahead of the recently-reformed girl group announcing a reunion tour back in November, and later adding another 15 shows due to extraordinary demand. The shows also mark their first headline performances without Sarah Harding, who passed away in 2021 due to breast cancer.

Also set to perform at the Brighton event on the first of the two nights includes multi-award winning actor, musician and LGBTQ+ icon, Billy Porter, who is set to play tracks from his latest album ‘Black Mona Lisa’ and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who has recently seen her 2001 track ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ climbing the charts thanks to its feature in Saltburn.

Others warming up the main stage crowd that day are US drag artist and musician Kevin Aviance and London’s House Gospel Choir.

Based on the list of performers Brighton Pride is definitely giving all the Pride events we have in the US a run for their money.
