I usually stay out of West Hollywood during Los Angeles Pride because it’s SO crowded and there is practically NO WHERE to park, but this year I’m going to have to Uber or something because the artists they have lined up to perform are awesome! Carly Rae Jepsen! Trina! Charli XCX! Daya! Hailee Steinfeld! Robin S.! AND this year, the lineup includes a couple of WOWlebrities…
You know Big Freedia from her hit World of Wonder & Fuse show Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce and her booty shakin’ bounce music, and I’m so excited to shake my ass with Big Freedia at LA Pride this year!
Lion Babe is a neo soul duo comprised of Lucas Goodman and Jillian Hervey, who you may remember from the All Star Girl Groups episode of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race. (She is Vanessa Williams’ daughter and led Team Shad to victory in the episode!)
From the press release:
On June 10th-12th in West Hollywood, CA, LA PRIDE Music Festival & Parade 2016 will set the stage for a fresh lineup that is as diverse as the massive festival crowds expected to attend. The now three-day ticketed music festival features a carefully crafted assortment of Electronic, Pop, Hip Hop, R&B and Latin artists, all performing on one of four venue stages. This year’s all-inclusive lineup will be headlined by multi-platinum, GRAMMY ® nominated singer and songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen, international pop sensation Charli XCX, responsible for penning multi-platinum and GRAMMY ® nominated singles and multi-platinum selling sisters/vocalists/songwriters/
DJs Krewella who will join over 50 artists scheduled to perform throughout the festival weekend.
This year will feature a variety of stages including the Delta Air Lines Main Stage, the Nissan Latin Music Stage powered by Club Papi, the Hip Hop Music Stage powered by B.A.S.H., and a new Dance Music stage. The Delta Air Lines Main Stage will showcase everything from top 40 hit makers to emerging artists. Meanwhile, the Nissan Latin Music Stage will have a talent lineup ranging from Electronica to Banda including Diana Reyes, Maribel Gaurdia and Mariana Seoane. This year’s Hip Hop Music Stage is going all out featuring Grammy Award winning and Billboard chart-topping musical acts like Faith Evans, Da Brat, Trina & Big Freedia. Each stage highlights unique musical styles and the curated lineup celebrates a diverse collection of talent with mass appeal.
“This year we doubled down on talent and are excited to have such a strong lineup performing at the Music Festival,” said CSW President Chris Classen. “Our Festival rivals other major music events around the country and offers a lineup you can’t find anywhere else among LGBTQ events, and at a fraction of the cost of other music festival tickets.” “This year’s multiple stages, oversized art exhibits, experiential activations and pop-up bars and restaurants from notable hot spots in Los Angeles will certainly add to an already stellar festival experience,” added Jeff Consoletti, Producer, LA PRIDE Music Festival & Parade.
