Conchita Wurst, the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Rise like a Phoenix will headline this year’s Manchester Pride Big Weekend festival.
The singer, who won the Eurovision Song Contest earlier this year, will be joined on stage by Anastacia, Foxes and All Saints at the festival this coming August Bank Holiday weekend. Other acts set to appear over the four-day event include girl-group Neon Jungle, and the former X-Factor contestants Marcus Collins, Rowetta, Misha B and Lucy Spraggan.
We’re delighted to announce some great new artists, joining the already confirmed stellar line up for the 2014 Big Weekend, the event’s chief executive Mark Fletcher told the Manchester Evening News. We’re especially excited Conchita Wurst will be joining us following her stand out performance at Eurovision…there’s a lot to love at Manchester Pride this year.
Manchester Pride is taking place on 22-25 August 2014 in Manchester.
