Will Young and Judge Jules named as Manchester Pride 2016 headliners
08:09, 28 JAN 2016 UPDATED 08:10, 28 JAN 2016
BY SIMON BINNS
The event takes place in August and tickets are on sale from tomorrow

Will Young will play Manchester Pride’s The Big Weekend 2016.

The singer and actor will be making his only LGBT festival appearance of the year at the event, which is held over the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

In 2015, the multi-million selling Brit Award winning singer-songwriter released his sixth album ’85% Proof’ - which became his fourth No.1 record.

Manchester Pride has also confirmed International DJ Judge Jules as the first DJ to be confirmed to play in the Gaydio Dance Arena.

Award-winning Jules has enjoyed a long and hugely influential radio heritage over two decades, with Kiss FM, then BBC Radio 1 and his internationally-syndicated Global Warm Up show, broadcast weekly on over 70 stations around the world.

The Big Weekend is also set to see the return of Pride favourite and singer songwriter Heather Peace, and the popular ‘Heather Peace Presents’ Boutique Stage line-up in Sackville Gardens. Last year’s ‘Heather Peace Presents’ saw performances from Miri, Jess Vincent and Joe Slater on the Saturday of The Big Weekend.

Manchester Pride Patron, Heather who has been acting for over 20 years, has starred in TV shows such as London’s Burning, Lip Service, Waterloo Road and Prey.

She most recently appeared in the National Film Awards’ nominated Never Let Go. In 2014 she released her biggest album to date The Thin Line, which entered the UK Independent Album Charts top ten.

Mark Fletcher, Chief Executive of Manchester Pride, said: “The Big Weekend 2015 was a great success and we’re preparing for the challenge of matching it this year. Our first announcement demonstrates our commitment to delivering a first class line up of entertainment for The Big Weekend in 2016 as we embark on our mission to celebrate, campaign and raise money for the LGBT communities of Greater Manchester.

The Manchester Pride Festival is a four-day event celebrating LGBT life. The event takes place in August, with the Big Weekend running from Friday 26 - Monday 29 August and the Parade on Saturday 27 August. The Big Weekend tickets are on sale from tomorrow, priced at £18 for weekend tickets. Day, family and children’s tickets will be released at a later date.

For those of you wondering who will be gracing Manchester Pride Festival, the organisers have announced that Will Young will be playing the Big Weekend 2016.

Will Young is the first act to be announced to play Manchester Pride’s The Big Weekend 2016. This will be making his only LGBT festival appearance of the year at Manchester’s Big Weekend.

The press release reads: “In 2015 multi-million selling Brit Award winning singer-songwriter Will released his sixth album 85% Proof representing his most accomplished work to date. Arriving at the top of the charts (making it his fourth No.1 album), 85% Proof is an eclectic, hugely confident and startlingly human record which continues to cement Will’s status as both a national icon and reigning artistic powerhouse.

Along with the success of ’85% Proof’ Will embarked on a long-awaited Love Revolution Tour. His first nation-wide tour in four years saw him playing to 23 sold out dates across the UK and Ireland in October and November 2015.”

So many fab tweets and pics about his performance. wub.gif wub.gif What a brilliant showman. dance.gif To think in a few weeks he'll be performing jazz covers in the 606 Cub. Such a versatile artist who can tailor his performance to suit any event whilst never compromising his vocals heart.gif

Have to go out but will bring over some of the amazing pics and tweets later.
