Kylie Minogue and Grace Jones to headline Brighton Pride 2019

Party of the summer...

Kylie Minogue and Grace Jones will lead the line-up for this year’s Brighton Pride.

The hugely popular festival returns to the seaside from 2-4 August, a year after Britney Spears drew record crowds to the city’s Preston Park.

The Australian pop icon and soul legend join a line-up that already includes the likes of Clean Bandit and Jessie J.

Minogue takes top billing on Saturday’s Pride in the Park event, while Jones will headline the Sunday’s LoveBN1Fest.

Although early bird tickets are currently sold out, a second release is currently on sale here while a final batch of tickets will go on sale at a later date.

The confirmation of Kylie’s trip to the seaside comes after it was finally confirmed that she will finally make her Glastonbury debut later this year.

The pop icon will appear on the Sunday of the iconic festival (June 30), performing on the Pyramid Stage in the teatime slot that has previously played host to the likes of Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Neil Diamond.

The performance comes some 14 years after treatment for breast cancer forced her to pull out of a headline appearance.

Confirming the show, Kylie previously wrote on Twitter: “I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ll be playing the ‘Legend slot’ on Sunday 30th June at @GlastoFest 2019. It will be 14 years since I was originally meant to appear there and so much has happened up to now. I can’t wait to see you all there to share this special show.”
