Cheryl is giving the gays everything they want with a headline slot at 2020’s Mighty Hoopla extravaganza.

Fresh from her performance at last year’s Manchester Pride festival, the former Girl’s Aloud singer will take to the stage for the fourth annual queer pop event in London’s Brockwell Park on June 6.

Mighty Hoopla organisers ‘thrilled’ to welcome Cheryl.

Organisers said: “We are thrilled that this year’s Hoopla will be closed by one of the millennium’s most iconic pop stars.

“Having risen to fame in one of biggest girl groups of the 21st century, Cheryl has since gone on to release five number one singles in the UK – the first British female solo artist to achieve this feat.

“Revellers can expect to hear smash hits “Fight for This Love”, “Call My Name” and “Crazy Stupid Love” in a pop-tastic set that’s sure to blow your military hats off.”

Eve and Alphabeat have also joined the line-up.

Other confirmed performers for the event include Jimmy Somerville, Anastacia, Natasha Bedingfield, Sonique, Atomic Kitten and Gabrielle.

The festival will also see sets from Sink the Pink, Queefy, The Cocoa Butter Club and the London Gay Man’s Chorus.

Tickets for the festival cost £50, and are already on sale.

Fans are thrilled with Cheryl announcement.

Safe to say, the reaction to the headliner announcement was pretty positive.

One Twitter user wrote: “Finally, some respect. @mightyhoopla have smashed it with their headliner this year!!”

Another added: “I was already super excited for Mighty Hoopla, but Cheryl, Eve and Alphabeat as well? I’m shooketh ?”

Originally starting it’s life at Butlins in 2016, Mighty Hoopla moved to Victoria Park a year later before finding its home in Brockwell Park in 2018.

2019’s Mighty Hoopla welcomed 20,000 party-goers and saw Chaka Khan, Bananrama, Ultra Nate, All Saints, Jamelia, Kate Nash, Liberty X and Artful Dodger perform.
