Ariana, Kim Petras, and Years & Years Are Headlining Manchester Pride
You like my tickets? Gee thanks, just bought ‘em.
Last night, the musical lineup for the annual Manchester Pride festival was revealed, and it’s stacked to the GODS with all of our favorites!!
Headlining the event is none other than pop queen Ariana Grande, who raised $13 million dollars for the victims of the Manchester shooting back in May of 2017.
She tweeted out the announcement last night, and her UK fans are living for it.

Some fans, however, have expressed concern over having a straight headliner, and how the event might be filled with straight Ariana fans, ultimately detracting from the core message of Pride. It’s safe to say that Ariana is headlining the event due to the horrific attack at her previous Manchester concert back in 2017, but with such a big headlining act comes increased ticket prices (and even age restrictions.)
\u201cexcuse me u can\u2019t buy tickets for pride to see ariana unless u have a valid gay membership card. sorry i don\u2019t make the rules\u201d— poppy (@poppy) 1551114409
Despite the controversy, Manchester is welcoming her back with open arms. After smashing a few Billboard records with the release of her newest album and becoming the most followed woman on Instagram, she went ahead and secured her title as a true gay icon. Not too shabby.
