Liverpool Pride 2011 announce Full line up

Liverpool Pride has announced an exciting line up of locally and nationally renowned acts, which are sure to get the crowds dancing when the festival rocks onto Liverpool’s Pier Head on Saturday 6 August.

The Summer of Love is beginning, the sound of guitars is in the air, Rainbow flags are being hoisted, daisy chains are being pulled together and a throng of flower children is making its way to Liverpool. Organisers promise a FREE day of family fun for everyone to enjoy.  The iconic waterfront site will be transformed into the perfect hippie hang out complete with two stages, a football area, market stalls, a health and wellbeing area and food outlets. Mersey Ferries are also offering Pride goers 2 for 1 tickets to take Pride cruises down the river throughout the day.

There is a plethora of flower-tastic acts who will take to the Radio City Main Stage to ensure that Pride goers have a Summer of Love to remember.  Headlining is soul and disco diva Kym Mazelle, who is sure to get everybody into the party spirit with her classic hit Young Hearts Run Free’ in addition to her other hits including Got to Get You Back and Missing You, which she originally performed with Soul II Soul. 

X-factor duo Diva Fever will also take to the stage to perform their version of a number of top pop hits and the one and only Rowetta whose act brought the house down at last year’s event is sure to have everyone dancing when she returns for her second Liverpool Pride performance.

There will also be a wealth of local talent gracing the Main Stage including Sense of Sound choir, locally renowned crooner Alan Cross and House of Suarez who will give a taste of the Death by Glitter Vogue Ball, which will take place later this year.

If you enjoy something that’s as camper than Christmas, then The Sundaes will definitely be for you, they’ll be camping it up alongside drag artiste Diva Bliss. Tribute act Haus of Gaga is sure to get the crowd rocking to some of Lady Gaga’s biggest hits and  Bears Aloud will be on hand with their unique performances of pop hits including numbers by Girls Aloud and Steps . If you prefer your bear to be a little manlier, then be sure to get your fix when Manchester based bear-band Cubstars take to the stage.  Boy band FTW and singers Sean Rumsey and Adam Lyons will also provide Pride goers with a little eye candy on the day.  Girls should check out beautiful singers Elouise, Ruth Cullen and club divas Gemma Irwin and Chelcee Grimes. 

The Summer of Love will be brought right up to date with a mix of acoustic, Indie and electro acts including Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Finalist, Liverpool’s own Beauty, who will perform songs from his forthcoming album Freakshow and talented Liverpool based indie-electro artist Zara is also set to perform. She’ll be taking to the stage with a few of her original songs.

The day is sure to end on a high with a dramatic balloon release across the river Mersey and a glittering finale from a number of local performers.

A little about Liverpool Pride...
Liverpool Pride is the official pride festival by and for the Liverpool lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) communities. In 2010 it was a two day event with one day festival held on 7 August 2010 and a ‘Chill Out Sunday’ on 8 August with a range of cultural and sporting events across the city.

The date was chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the death of Michael Causer. Before confirming the date organisers took into account the date of other events in the city, festival organisers are also happy to confirm that the festival does not clash with any major pride festival including Brighton and Hove Pride which this year will take place on August 13th.
Liverpool Pride is funded through contributions made from delivery partners as well as through advertising and sponsorship as well as significant in-kind support. Liverpool Pride is currently undergoing charity registration and does not make a profit.
