Wow! Not one, but two big announcements. First we had the news that Chic will be gracing the Pride main stage at this year’s Brighton Pride, 4 & 5 August. Nile Rodgers and co appeared at Love Supreme in 2013 and blew us all away with classic hit after classic hit. They’ll be doing the same this year. Then, just this morning it was announced that Britney Spears will be headlining one of the two days. This really is Premier League stuff, and while Ms Spears may not be, ahem, musically cutting edge or critically acclaimed in the same way as Chic are, it’s still a monster booking, and perfect for Brighton Pride, which is, after all, a celebration of all that is wonderful about Brighton & Hove’s diverse community.
