L.A. Pride Music Lineup, Event Rundown

Lace up your dancing stilettos, Los Angeles.

Joining this year’s previously announced all-star lineup are a diverse group of artists including global Latin superstar Cristian Castro, the newest hip-hop queenCupcakKe, LGBTQ rapper and singer Kodie Shane, infectious indie pop group The Drums, and Australian pop princesses The Veronicas. 

Previously announced performers for the LA Pride Festival, which takes place June 7-9 in West Hollywood Park, include headliners Grammy Award-winning global superstar Meghan Trainor and British electronic pop trio Years & Years and will be joined by Grammy Award winner Ashanti, plus Amara La Negra, Dej Loaf, Greyson Chance, MNEK, Pabllo Vittar, and Ah-Mer-Ah-Su.

With an all-new stage layout for 2019, all artists, regardless of genre, will be featured on two stages located inside the LA Pride Festival grounds. From hip-hop and pop to Latin and EDM, this year’s performers are coming together on both stages to celebrate this year’s theme, #JUSTUNITE, which recognizes that the work the LGBTQ+ community does together ultimately makes it stronger and more resilient than ever before.

This year, the organizers of LA Pride are also teaming up with the City of West Hollywood to host the first-ever “Pride on the Boulevard” block party. “Pride on the Boulevard” is free to the general public and will feature an array of local LGBTQ+ artists: rising pop artist Bronze Avery, Sony Music recording artist DIIMOND, Latin performer and LGBTQ activist Heartthrob Robb, dance music’s go-to house super songstress Kaleena Zanders, Lesbian feminist and popstar Zolita, hip-hop goddess, the industry’s first Trans rap sensation Lady Londyn, and more will take to the stage on Santa Monica Boulevard between San Vicente and Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood.

Festival-goers are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance at lapride.org. General admission single-day tickets ($30) and weekend passes ($50) are still available. “Backstage VIP Experience” single-day tickets ($250) and weekend passes ($450) are also still available for purchase and include a dedicated VIP entrance to expedite festival entry, backstage access to the Park & Plaza Stages, two complimentary SKYY Vodka cocktails and a complimentary afternoon meal. Additionally, volunteers, who can donate four hours of their time to the celebration, receive complimentary tickets to the festival.

Catch Georgel’s performance at 8 p.m. Saturday!

Ticket sales and proceeds from the LA Pride Festival support and fund the LA Pride Parade and CSW’s philanthropic efforts. This includes community-wide programs including Casa del Sol, a joint project with APLA Health that provides low-income housing to people living with HIV/AIDS, and PLATform, a policy, leadership, and advocacy training program to help amplify the voices of the transgender community. Additionally, proceeds benefit the USC GLASS Endowed Scholarship, a grant program awarded to students to help them conduct research affirming the important role the LGBTQ+ community plays in society today. Funds raised will also help CSW prepare for its 50th anniversary in 2020.

The annual 2019 LA Pride Festival (Saturday, June 8 – Sunday, June 9) and 2019 LAPride Parade (Sunday, June 9) in West Hollywood will be the culmination of a full week’s worth of events and community programming beginning on May 31. Check out the full 2019 LA Pride Week calendar at lapride.org/events. To learn more about LA Pride, purchase tickets, get event updates, and be added to our email list, please visit lapride.org.
