Years & Years are headlining Birmingham Pride this year.
The annual LGBTQ celebration, which will take place over the May Bank Holiday weekend (25-26 May), is stepping its game up this year with a line-up of incredible talent for their bigger-than-ever-before Love Out Loud Festival.
It’s just been announced that British synth-pop band Years & Years, fronted by queer singer Olly Alexander, will bring hits like If You’re Over Me, Play and King to the stage on Saturday 25th May.
“Birmingham!! Can’t wait to celebrate Pride with you this year,” Olly said. “See you in May!”
Also taking to the stage on the Saturday are Mabel, who’s dominated the airwaves over the last few years with hits like Don’t Call Me Up and Ring Ring, and one of pop’s hottest new stars Alice Chater.
They’ll be joined by former Gay Times cover star Lady Leshurr, fierce girl group M.O, chart-topping DJ Sigala, English singer-songwriter and R&B star Mya, who famously featured alongside Pink, Christina Aguilera and Lil Kim on 2001’s Lady Marmalade.
Meanwhile, Sunday will see 80s music legends Marc Almond and The Human League join BRIT Award-nominated NAO, electronica band Faithless, live orchestra Rogue Symphony, and RuPaul’s Drag Race star and rapper Aja.
