Pride’s Festival Director, Lawrence Barton, commented: “There’s such a buzz around already for this year’s Birmingham Pride! Every year we bring some of the biggest and best new and retro artists to the festival, and 2017 is no different. We’re delighted that Dua Lipa will headline the festival, in what is one of our biggest line-ups to date, that also include Basement Jaxx, Gabrielle, Jamelia, Jonas Blue, and M.O. And there’s still more acts to announce.”

He added: “We’re delighted to be adopting the theme ‘Love & Pride’, recognising and commemorating the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality – a monumental occasion for the LGBT community.”
