Volunteer Park Pride Festival is back with a musical line-up of exciting new LGBTQ up-and-comers and hometown favorites!
The lineup includes DESI VALENTINE a London-born, L.A.-based soul singer and songwriter known for his bluesy baritone voice, unique retro R&B style, and radiant charisma. Adding to the mystery this year is a SPECIAL SURPRISE GUESTS, we can’t tell you who they are just yet, other than they are staples of the Seattle LGBTQ scene who are ready to ROCK! DONORMAAL, a Seattle-based hip-hop artist who experiments in “morbid, emotional prayer” through her unique, genre-bending style of rap. LITTLE BANDIT, who Rolling Stone Magazine describes as “A crew of East Nashville rule-breakers putting a gorgeous, gay-friendly spin on their city’s Countrypolitan past”. FRUIT JUICE, retro-glam darlings of the Olympia scene who boast “infectious energy, sparkling oddities, and 13 shades of eye shadow.” BETSY OLSON, a gritty, soulful, blues-rock singer from Seattle whose band includes the inimitable Sera Cahoone on drums. DJ TOYA B, a soul, hip-hop and dance DJ “addicted to glitter, hip hop glamour and Barbie doll fashion.”
In addition to live musical, there will also be food trucks, beer gardens, lawns games, and artist/craft vendors! This event is FREE and suitable for all ages. Join us on June 10th from 12pm-7pm for a wonderful celebration! More information on the festival and artists here.
