Pride in Liverpool is looking brighter than ever this year as Katrina of Katrina and the Waves has been confirmed as Main Stage headliner on Saturday 27 July.

The former Eurovision winner will spread the love and shine a light on the main stage – which is returning to the world-famous Liverpool Waterfront – on Saturday, 27 July, with the annual march and festival remaining free for all to attend.

Known for hits including Walking on Sunshine and Going Down to Liverpool, Katrina was propelled to new heights in 1997, when, as lead singer of Katrina and the Waves, they won the Eurovision Song Contest for the UK with Love Shine A Light

Andi Herring, CEO of LCR Pride Foundation, said: 

“We are thrilled to be bringing the main stage back for what is going to be the biggest Pride in Liverpool programme yet. We’re not quite yet over the buzz of last year’s Eurovision and following the weekend’s fantastic contest in Malmo we can’t wait to continue that magic further with Katrina.

“Pride in Liverpool is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate diversity and acceptance in the Liverpool City Region and show our solidarity with LGBT+ communities across the world. We are delighted that the festival remains free to attend for everyone and we will continue to prioritise accessibility further than ever before so that everyone can enjoy the day.”
