Manchester Pride has confirmed its line up for 2021 and they’re releasing more tickets.
Zara Larsson, Annie Mac, Gabrielle, Katy B, Drag Race UK stars and Eve lead the lineup of MCR Pride Live, which takes place between 28-29 August.
Alongside the lineup announcement, Manchester Pride has confirmed that extra tickets will be released today (30 April) at 12pm via Ticketmaster here.
Tickets will be available for the MCR Pride Live festival and Gay Village Party which takes place throughout Canal Street, but they’ve confirmed it’s a ‘limited release’.
While Zara will headline Sunday night, the LGBT+ charity confirms it has secured another major artist as headline performer on Saturday but says they, “will not be in a position to reveal their identity until 27 August, right before the bank holiday weekend show”.
Completing the 2021 lineup for Manchester Pride is the likes of Ella Henderson, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Sigala, Example, Jodie Harsh, Drag Race UK’s The Vivienne, Tia Kofi and Veronica Green, Danny Beard, Cheddar Gorgeous, Karen Harding and Mykki Blanco.
This year’s MCR Live is taking place in a smaller venue which is being revealed in the coming weeks, with capacity reduced by 50 per cent to ensure safety.
