GAYDAR ‘Q’ STAGE AMAZING LINE-UP

The Q Live Music Stage has to be one of the most anticipated additions to this year’s Brighton Pride Festival in Preston Park. Bringing the very best in live rock, indie, folk electronic and rap to the UK’s favourite Pride celebration, The Q Live Music Stage line-up is a stunning selection of diversity, talent and success and promises to bring something bold, brash and beautiful to Brighton Pride 2014.

Headlining the Q proceedings will be the indie legends that are Republica and their irrepressible front woman Saffron Sprackling whilst the roof raising A-Flop of Lucy Spraggan and her band return for yet another unforgettable performance.

If you want your entertainment strictly gothic and industrial then Massive Ego and Death Koolaid will be un-missable as will the homo-hop of the superb Q Boy and London’s spoken word and hip-hop aficionados LC Collective. The spellbinding Bruce Lok and memorising CN Lester will enchant whilst Kit Rice‘s blend of funk, pop and hip hop will ensure the dance is had.

The energetic Brit-pop passion of Departure From Normal and Battle Of You will bring plenty of sunshine beats to proceedings and Echo and the Beats promise a set of punky ska-core fuelled with mod vibes. Brighton Music Award winners Kenelis will be performing an lively set of alt-rock with elements of punk, grunge and hardcore and Brighton Pride favourites Joan Ov Arc return ready to rock the Q Live Stage with their classic rock anthems.

Kenelis front women and Q Stage Coordinator Mel Sanson said “We wanted to bring more live music into the park and music of different genres that don’t always get the opportunity to play at Pride festivals. Supporting new music and local bands is really important to me and we hope they all enjoy the day rocking the stage!”

The Brighton Pride Q Live Stage. It’s going to be one hell of a debut and one we can’t wait to hear. See you at the front.

MESSAGE OF SUPPORT FROM PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON

Prime Minister David Cameron

I am, once again, delighted to offer my support to Pride Brighton & Hove. It is a fantastic celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and its contribution to the diversity and vibrancy of Brighton and Hove.

I am proud of this country’s record of advancing LGBT equality and rights. It was a truly momentous occasion seeing the first same-sex couples getting married on 29 March, including those marriages that took place in Brighton that weekend.

The Pride festival is an excellent opportunity to bring people from different communities together to enjoy not only a colourful and entertaining day out but a whole programme of cultural, social and sporting events. These events are a great way to enhance community dialogue and to remind ourselves of the progress towards equality made in this country. The LGBT Pride events that take place across the UK each year help to show why the UK continues to be recognised as number one in Europe on LGBT equality and rights.

I would like to send my congratulations to the organisers and volunteers for their efforts in co-ordinating Pride Brighton & Hove 2014 and wish everyone attending the very best for a happy and successful event.
