The first acts performing at Manchester Pride 2024 have been revealed. The line-up for those taking to the stage at the event’s Gay Village Party has been announced.

If this wasn’t enough, event organisers have said a third ‘big headline act’ that will be announced at a later date. Dozens of acts have been announced in this first wave for the August bank holiday. 

Other performers who will be joining the array of LGBTQ+ talent from Manchester include Katy B, Chinchilla, Radio 1’s Dean McCullough, reigning Drag Race UK winner Ginger Johnson, Claire Richards from the Brit award winning band Steps and Atomic Kitten Natasha Hamilton. The full line-up can be found on the Manchester Pride website. 

The Gay Village Party will have three stages where acts will perform across the weekend. These are the Village Stage which occupies an outdoor car park in the middle of the event site, The Alan Turing Stage in Sackville Gardens and the Indoor Arena.

Mark Fletcher, CEO of Manchester Pride said: “Each year we ask our communities what they'd like to see at the Festival and I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to respond with this line up. Jessie J and Loreen are outstanding performers. It’s brilliant to have them sharing the stage with local Queer talent and supporting us as we continue to push the Pride movement forward.

“There’s a huge variety of entertainment on offer this year; a host of classic Pride favourites, emerging artists, drag royalty and well known performers spanning a whole range of genres.

“What’s most important is the representation and visibility of the further marginalised LGBTQ+ people. The way we’ve been able to achieve this is through co-curation with our communities. The stage takeovers enable us to deliver an event which is designed by our communities for our communities and allies to enjoy.

“This year will see one of the biggest weekends we’ve delivered. We’ve got another headline act lined up and a few surprises in store that we’ll be announcing over the coming months so we’re encouraging attendees to get their tickets in advance to avoid disappointment because it’s likely to be a sold out event.”
