NEW ACTS ANNOUNCED
Following the recent announcement of an exciting line-up for the free festival, which includes a DJ set by Spice Girl Melanie C, Louise and local hero Joe McElderry, organisers have also added new names to the Friday night fund raiser event on 22 July.
Along with performances from Todrick Hall, Bimini and Jodie Harsh, attendees will be able to enjoy a set from singer/songwriter Katy B and BBC Radio 1 DJ Dean McCullough.
Dean McCullough is a television and radio presenter who hosts his own show every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:30am on BBC Radio 1, and will get the Launch Party underway when gates open.
Attracting 3.3m listeners to Radio 1 Dean is Attitude Magazines’ Top 10 LGBT+ ‘Broadcaster of The Year‘ and has also been nominated at the British LGBT Awards for ‘Broadcaster of The Year’.
The dance-orientated electronic pop artist, Katy B, has achieved a number one top spot for her second album ‘Little Red’ and clocked up 5 UK Top 10s including hits ‘Katy on a Mission’, ‘Lights On’ and ‘Crying for No Reason’. Award winning Katy B will warm up the crowds ahead of Todrick Hall, with organisers promising a opening night to remember.
Northern Pride Festival will host UK Pride at Newcastle’s Town Moor from 22 to 24 July.
Broadway star, famed choreographer and award-winning performer Todrick Hall headlining the launch party.
Also joining him is RuPaul’s Drag Race UK finalist Bimini Bon Boulash and world-famous DJ Jodie Harsh, with more acts to be announced soon.
Todrick Hall found widespread success after appearing on American Idol, going on to collaborate professionally with huge stars such as Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Pentatonix and judging on tv shows including RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Greatest Dancer.
And it will be the second time organisers are working with Todrick after being one of the few UK Pride festivals selected to take part in Global Pride 2020, which the performer hosted.
Also joining Dean, Katy B and Toddrick on the line-up is Bimini Bon Boulash, who rose to fame and became a firm fan favourite after appearing on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.
The finalist won over viewers with their eclectic style and quick wit during their time on the show, caricaturing Katie Price, performing a hit verse on the chart-topping single UK Hun? and later releasing their debut single, God Save This Queen.
And the festival will also welcome back renowned DJ Jodie Harsh – who headlined last year’s virtual event, Northern Pride Online 2.1.
A staple on the UK club scene, the acclaimed producer has played for audiences across the globe and taken to the stage at huge events including Glastonbury, Creamfields and Bestival.

HELP KEEP PRIDE FREE
One of our key aims at Northern Pride is to ensure that regardless of your sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or sex characteristics, you can attend a free pride event in your home town or city.
That's why we work all year round to raise the money needed to put on our FREE Northern Pride Festival weekend. Ticketed events like this one, help us to do exactly that. So by joining us on Friday night, you'll be helping us in our mission. We're incredibly grateful.
We understand that there will still be some in our community that won't be able to cover the cost associated with this event, that's why we're working with community groups, and local LGBTQ+ charities and community groups to provide a free allocation of tickets for their service users, so they can join us.
