Brighton & Hove Pride 2024 to present the best LGBTQ+ performers and collectives at this year’s FABULOSO Festival

Graham Robson May 28, 2024

Brighton & Hove Pride has shared the wide range of performers and collectives set to bring the Pride joy to all corners of this year’s FABULOSO event at Preston Park, Brighton on Saturday, 3 and Sunday, 4 August.

Featuring over 150 LGBTQ+ artists across the weekend, the diverse variety of music and performance on display celebrates the togetherness of Pride in all its forms.


One of FABULOSO’s most exciting offerings is the line-up at this year’s all new Queer ALT Stage on Sunday. Iconic Canadian musician Peaches tops the bill, bringing all of her ground shaking, boundary pushing brand of electroclash for what’s set to be a stellar set. They’re joined on the line-up by queer alt-pop queen Girli, provocative drag-pop star Lynks, queer DIY pop artist Foxgluvv, as well as James Indigo and Under The Ivy.

Back for its fifth year and featuring a plethora of queer artists, live music, cabaret and comedy, QueerTown hosts a number of exciting performers. Saturday’s line-up features cabaret extraordinaires The Enby Show as well as the UK’s first queer, pan-Asian cabaret production The Bitten Peach. Berlin-based spoken word-theatre collective Queerdos also perform alongside queer drag king collective Haus of Dons and award-winning comedian Billie Gold hosts.

Paul Diello

Sunday’s focus at QueerTown turns to music. Country music drag artists Hoedown Hunnies lead the charge alongside rising singer-songwriter Amity Miller and queer Brighton artist Paul Diello, as well as Al Start, Amrick Channa, Bee & Jackrabbit, Christavie and Party Bag.

Aneesa Chaudhry

The Sheila McWattie Performance Tent, named after Brighton & Hove’s much-loved women’s rights activist, campaigner, friend and pioneer, has welcomed an incredible selection of stand up, poetry, cabaret and spoken word performances in recent years. 2024’s Saturday line-up includes British-Asian singer Aneesa Chaudhry, indie pop artist Lannie Camper, afro-soul-folk songstress Liz Ikamba, percussionist Rosie Bergonzi, trans and queer multi-instrumentalist Sekinue and powerful vocalist Sera Lilith Gold.

Dave Pearce

For those seeking a slice of nostalgia at FABULOSO, the Noughty 90s Big Top is the place to be. Bringing iconic dance and pop memories back to life, Dave Pearce’s Dance Anthems are certainly not to be missed. Spanish DJ and producer DJ Sammy, loved for his UK #1 hit of Bryan Adams’ original track Heaven, also joins this year’s lineup alongside ’90s dance singer Alison Limerick, renowned British house music group K-Klass, Eurodance group Livin’ Joy ft. Luzahnn, and the smash hit Everybody’s Free star Rozalla.


British pop idols Girls Aloud and global superstar Mika will headline the main stage at this year’s joyful and fun filled FABULOSO two-day community fundraiser event. Joining this spectacular line up is multi-award-winning actor, musician and LGBTQ+ icon, Billy Porter; dancefloor and all out sensation, Sophie Ellis-Bextor; pop family favourites, S Club, singer-songwriter, Gabrielle; New York legend, Kevin Aviance; ABBA tribute act, Björn Again; House Gospel Choir; and Danny Beard, with more artists and acts to be announced over the coming months.

Pride Village Party

As always, the Brighton & Hove Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade will open the weekend under this year’s theme of JOY: celebrating life, spirit, and resilience. The parade will wind through the city streets in its usual spectacle of colour and style, delighting the thousands of people who take to the streets to watch the event which showcases over one hundred charities, community groups and small businesses, emergency services, the NHS and representatives of other Pride organisations. Other Brighton & Hove Pride favourites, including the Pride Village Party and Pride Community Day & Dog Show, will also make their rainbow-coloured return.

Firmly established as the UK’s most popular international Pride festival, Brighton & Hove Pride is as famous, vibrant, popular, and unique as the city itself. Brighton & Hove Pride’s sole ethos is to promote diversity, inclusion and education within our communities while raising much needed funds – standing at £1.3million – for local LGBTQ+ charity and community groups and projects through the Brighton Rainbow Fund and Social Impact Fund.
