Look forward to celebrating, campaigning and fundraising for the LGBTQ+ community properly this summer, because Manchester Pride is back – and their full line-up has finally been revealed.
2021’s Pride celebration will feature performances from Sigala, Annie Mac, Katy B, Example, Ella Henderson and Zara Larson in headlining slots, with additional performances from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Lucy Spraggan, Vulva and many, many more acts over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Manchester staple La Discothèque is also on the bill, alongside party favourites House of Ghetto, Cheddar Gorgeous and Trans Creative’s Manchester Trans Rally – with a few additional artists still to be revealed.
In partnership with Virgin Atlantic, the team behind the city’s iconic, annual festival are working hard to bring the event back during the August Bank Holiday weekend. In accordance with COVID guidelines, the physical festival will be held from Friday 27 to Monday 30 August 2021 in a smaller, as-yet-undisclosed venue at a reduced 50% capacity.
Every summer, thousands of people from all over the world flock to Manchester for the Pride parade. With lockdown dominating much of last year, 2020’s festival was cancelled – but the Pride team are determined to ensure 2021’s parade is viable, safe and accessible, alongside scheduling a range of related events, all of which will have safety restrictions firmly in mind.
The official venue for Manchester Pride 2021 will be revealed in a few weeks’ time, with an additional batch of tickets going on sale at midday on Friday 30 April. To buy yours, head to the Pride website or follow the booking button below.
