The weekend festival which takes place on Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15 attracted over 18,000 people in 2017. The 2018 festival moves from Glasgow Green to the iconic Kelvingrove Park, taking place in July rather than August due to other planned events in Glasgow this year.

Former Spice Girl Melanie C’s first solo venture was featuring on the hit single When You’re Gone with Bryan Adams. Incredibly successful across Europe, it entered the UK charts at Number 3 and gave Melanie aspirations for more solo projects.

As a solo artist, she has released seven solo albums – Northern Star (1999) and Reason (2003) were released on Virgin Records and after setting up her own label, Red Girl Records, in 2004, she released Beautiful Intentions (2005), This Time (2007), The Sea (2011), Stages (2012) and Version Of Me (2017) as an independent.

She has achieved over three million album sales, two Number 1 singles and six top 10 singles.

Ross Stevenson, Festival Director for Pride Glasgow said: “This year we are really spicing things up with a new venue, new date and a former Spice Girl.”

More acts will be announced in the coming months and organiser are aiming for a first class line-up to reflect the musical taste of visitors.
