Girls Aloud will headline this year’s Pride.

Brighton Pride will return for its annual Fabuloso in the Park weekend festival at the start of August, with an array of A-list performers.

Girls Aloud, who will embark on their reunion tour in May following an 11 year break, will headline the festival in Preston Park on Saturday.

The pop group's shows will be dedicated to former bandmate Sarah Harding who died of cancer in 2021.

Billy Porter and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, whose smash hit Murder on the Dancefloor has had a second wind in the charts thanks to its inclusion in film Saltburn, will also take to the main stage on Saturday.

Mika, best known for hits including Grace Kelly and Big Girl, will headline on Sunday and will be joined by S-Club and Gabrielle.

Other performers announced include RuPaul's Drag Race UK series four winner Danny Beard, House Gospel Choir and Beth McCarthy.

There will also be over 150 LGBTQ+ artists across 12 different stages and areas of entertainment over the two day event.

And in addition to the main-stage FABULOSO will continue to host an additional array of diverse and inclusive stages and entertainment zones across the park including the Pride Dance Tent, Beefmince Dance Tent, Cabaret Big Top, Diva Dance Tent, Polyglamorous, the Cocoa Butter Club Stage, Queertown and more.The Argus: Brighton Pride's full line-up for Fabuloso festivalBrighton Pride's full line-up for Fabuloso festival (Image: Brighton Pride)

Managing director Paul Kemp said: “Pride is always an amazing weekend of celebration and inclusiveness of our city and this year is going to be incredibly momentous with the fantastic Girls Aloud and Mika headlining our two day FABULOSO community fundraiser.

"With over 150 LGBTQ+ artists across the weekend, we are beyond thrilled to welcome a fantastic and diverse line-up to Brighton & Hove Pride for 2024 and, with Love, Protest, Unity and JOY at the core of our community parade, we invite everyone to celebrate your true colours.”

Previous acts to take to the stage in front of thousands of festival-goers have included Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Kylie Minogue.

Last year saw the Black Eyed Peas headline the first night of the festival and Steps the second night.

The much-loved Brighton and Hove Pride LGBTQ+ Community Day Parade will open the weekend under this year’s theme of Joy: celebrating life, spirit, and resilience.

Other Pride favourites including the Pride Village Party and Pride Community Day and Dog Show will also make their return.

Brighton Pride attracts an estimated half a million people to the city over the weekend and contributes more than £30 million to the city’s economy.

Pride will return to the city on August 2 until August 5.
