Beverley Knight has been confirmed as a headline act for this year’s Manchester Pride festival along with pop icon Belinda Carlise, Canadian electropop group Dragonette, Pineapple Dance Studios star Andrew Stone and Heaven 17 who will be celebrating their 30th anniversary.
Other acts confirmed for the festival include local Mancunian’s- May68, The Sticks and Sam Gray. Of course, it wouldn’t be Pride without Four Poofs & a Piano who will also be performing over The Big Weekend.
Jackie Crozier, festival director of Manchester Pride, said: “We’re extremely excited to be welcoming Beverley back for the second time- she’s a fantastic performer who really gets the crowd going. It’s also great to be adding some local acts to the line-up.”
