Ariana Grande to headline Manchester Pride

Manchester Pride has finally revealed its lineup – and none other than Ariana Grande will be headlining!

There was much speculation over whether or not Ariana was going to headline the Pride festival. Back in December, Ariana revealed her Sweetener World Tour European dates, and fans noticed that Manchester was missing from the list. In May 2017, a bombing occurred at the Manchester date of Ariana’s Dangerous Woman Tour, killing 22 people.

Ariana later confirmed on her Instagram story that she was planning a ‘special show’ for the city, with many believing this to be Manchester Pride.

Manchester Pride will definitely be a special show for Ariana and her fans – as the Pride festival celebrates the LGBT community of Manchester.

As well as Ariana, Years & Years, Bananarama, Kim Petras, Lady Leshurr and many more will also be performing at the festival.

Tickets for Manchester Pride are available here, but will be quick to sell out now that the lineup has been announced! The Rainbow Pass tickets will give purchasers access to the Manchester Pride Live stage and Gay Village Party.

Manchester Pride will take place during the bank holiday weekend of 23rd-26th August.
