“Pixie is joining a stellar line-up for 2014 and we’re excited to see all of our performers. This is one of the strongest entertainment lineups that Manchester Pride has ever seen, with local, national and international acts from an array of musical styles, including pop, dance, folk and rock. We’re already feeling the love for this year’s Pride line-up, with so much buzz already building in the run up to the Big Weekend.”
