Mika will headline on Sunday, supported by S Club and Gabrielle. Sunday will also see Abba tribute Björn Again at the afternoon party, alongside Britain’s Got Talent performer and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star, Danny Beard.

In addition to the main-stage FABULOSO will continue to host an additional array of diverse and inclusive stages and entertainment zones across the park including the Pride Dance Tent, Beefmince Dance Tent, Cabaret Big Top, Diva Dance Tent, Polyglamorous, the Cocoa Butter Club Stage, Queertown and more.  

Featuring over 150+ LGBTQ+ artists across the weekend including the likes of Peaches, Fat Tony, Beth McCarthy, Princess Superstar, DJ Paulette, Lynks, Horse Meat Disco, Girli and many more, organisers say additional line-up announcements will be 'coming soon'.

Managing Director Paul Kemp comments: 

“Pride is always an amazing weekend of celebration and inclusiveness of our city and this year is going to be incredibly momentous with the fantastic Girls Aloud and Mika headlining our 2 day FABULOSO community fundraiser. With over 150 LGBTQ+ artists across the weekend, we are beyond thrilled to welcome a fantastic and diverse line-up to Brighton & Hove Pride for 2024 and, with Love, Protest, Unity and JOY at the core of our community parade, we invite everyone to celebrate your true colours.”

As always, the Brighton & Hove Pride LGBTQ+ Community Day Parade will open the weekend under this year’s theme of JOY: celebrating life, spirit, and resilience. The parade will wind through the city in front of the thousands of people who take to the streets to watch the event which showcases over one hundred charities, community groups and small businesses, emergency services, the NHS and representatives of other Pride organisations. Other Brighton & Hove Pride favourites including the Pride Village Party and Pride Community Day & Dog Show will also make a return.

Firmly established as the UK’s most popular international Pride festival, Brighton & Hove Pride’s sole ethos is to 'promote diversity, inclusion and education within our communities while raising much needed funds for our local LGBTQ+ charity and community groups and projects through the Brighton Rainbow Fund and Social Impact Fund'.
