|The line up is super this year!|
It's no secret how much I love black pride. It's a fantastic alternative to the club focused scene where we have an opportunity to not only see established artists such as; Jessie J. Ms Dynamite and Beverly Knight but an array of talented artists from our own communities. It may be "Black Pride" but it's in no way exclusive. In fact it's the "inclusivity" I enjoy the most. With music, community stalls and an all round great vibe suitable for children and adults alike the atmosphere is unique and I urge you to get a ticket RIGHT NOW! Just in case you need more convincing. Read on...
The fantastic line up includes the King of UK funky. You know his name. He sings it very well! Doneeeeeo, Doneeeeyo! He will be gracing the black pride stage with hits including "Party Hard" and "Devil in a Blue Dress." Don't miss it!
There will also be impressive DJ'ing from the likes of: Misty B, Nicky Lucas, Missandi, Big John, Smoochie, Sho Sho, Goodaz, Sensi and Re'Kayle! Should get the crowd nice and lively!
One of the headliners repping the community is rapper A Dot. I'm really looking forward to seeing her perform!
House of Khan will be performing! Expect a high energy burst of technical perfection! You can also check out my interview on this blog with lead dancer D'relle. Such a lovely guy...
I'm also anticipating A great performance from Sister Sidney. So, So excited about this duo. I'm going to see them perform tonight... yay! I will let UK Black Pride say the rest as they were kind enough to give me a quote:
UK Black Pride attempts to bridge divides by providing a non-judgemental opportunity for Black LGBT people, friends and supporters, to come together to celebrate multiple identities and experiences with pride and without expectation to own, reject or justify anything to anyone. It permits taking pride in being who we are as determined by ourselves – devoid of the social or cultural stereotypes that are often projected upon groups. We want all to come out and enjoy the 7th UK Black Pride Festival at the Ministry of Sound, Saturday 18th August 2012. There is lots for everyone, performers, community stalls, speakers and £1000 worth of give-a-ways.
I'll also be doing some hosting on Saturday and sharing a poetic piece on homophobia along with the amazing MC Angel!
