LIVERPOOL Pride are delighted to announce the 1st wave of acts confirmed for this year's event. The newly ticketed sites for Liverpool Pride 2014 which include the Waterfront Stage, Stanley Street Stage and the Garlands and G-Bar Stage will play host to some great entertainment at this year's 'Glam Fairy Tales' themed Pride event on Saturday, 2 August 2014. The first confirmed acts include Katy B, and Sonia, with many more acts announced soon.

Headline act Katy B burst onto the music scene in 2010 with her debut single 'Katy on a Mission', after charting at no. 5 in the UK top 40 Katy B continued her success collaborating with artists such as Ms Dynamite, Mark Ronson and has recently contributed to England's 2014 world cup song with Gary Barlow and others. She returned with her 2nd album Little Red this year which topped the charts, reaching the number 1 spot on the UK album chart. She will be performing on the Waterfront stage.

Sonia, famous for her 1989 number 1 single You'll never stop me from loving you, is confirmed to perform on the Stanley Street stage. Her career launched right here in Liverpool as she sang on the club circuit in the 1980's, where she was discovered by pop producer Pete Waterman. 25 years after the release of her debut single, Sonia will return to where it all started on 2nd August for Liverpool Pride's biggest event so far.

Liverpool Pride are excited to be teaming up with media partner Radio City 96.7, the number one radio station for Liverpool. A whole host of Radio City DJ's and presenters will be appearing at both the Waterfront and Stanley Street stages entertaining the crowds and keeping up the party atmosphere throughout the whole day.

The North West's House of Suarez makes a welcome return to Pride this year. After being part of the opening event last year, House of Suarez are set to choreograph this year's performances. This innovative dance theatre company explore new forms of dance interpretations, fusing dance styles with expressive and amazing performances.

Last year's Liverpool Pride was the most successful event to date, with around 65,000 people in total enjoying the superhero themed festivities, including 6,000 marching in the parade and 20,000 spectators lining the City Centre streets to cheer them on. Across the 2 main festival sites, the Waterfront Stage and Stanley Street Stage, 65,000 revelers of all ages soaked up the music and atmosphere, with visitors travelling from as far as Germany, Dubai and even Australia to join in the fun. Pride organisers are certain that with these acts confirmed, and lots more to follow, 2014 will be the biggest and best pride to date.
