There’s still time for North East music fans to secure prime viewing spots at one of the UK’s largest free LGBT+ festivals this summer.
NORTHERN Pride Festival returns from July 19 to 21, with a host of big name acts taking to the stage at the Festival Arena, at Newcastle’s Town Moor over the Festival weekend.
And festival-goers can make sure they have the best views of top performers including Fleur East, Saara Aalto and Liberty X, with a limited number of Platinum Passes still available to purchase.
Starting at £29.99 for one day or £39.99 for a weekend, the tickets allow music fans access to a separate marquee, bar and garden area, along with posh toilets.
There is even the chance that ticket holders will be able to mingle with the stars when they go to grab a drink between performances.
Ste Dunn, chair of Northern Pride, says the passes are fantastic value for money. “There’s a whole host of things to enjoy for free at the festival but the Platinum Passes are very popular with music fans who want to make sure they can get close to the stage to see their favourite stars,” said Ste.
“There are a number of perks that come with the tickets, including shorter queues for the bars and toilets, and it all goes towards a good cause with the proceeds helping to fund the event and keep it free for future years.”
Also performing over the weekend are singer-songwriter Katherine Ellis, house music group Baby D, pop singer Sonia, former Union J star Jaymi Hensley, UK’s entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Michael Rice and more.
Across from the Town Moor’s Festival Arena, the Community Village will set up at Exhibition Park with the Curious Arts Stage, Rainbow Village and a number of zones including the Family and Youth Zone and the Health and Wellbeing Zone.
