Deets: Bold? Confident? Daring? Fabulous? Proud? At the end of the day, all that matters is that you #JUSTBE you at the 2018 LA Pride Festival!

R&B sensation Kehlani and international pop star Tove Lo are confirmed as the Park Stage headliners – alongside an amazing lineup of artists (to be announced soon!) – at the 2018 LA Pride Festival, making its return to West Hollywood Park on Saturday, June 9 (12pm – 1am) and Sunday, June 10 (11am – 11pm).

Pride is a time to commemorate the many brave individuals who came before us, who fought day and night for the rights and freedoms of the LGBTQ+ community – and, of course, all in the spirit of justice and equality. But Pride is also a time when we can let our hair down among like-minded souls, celebrating and embracing the unmatched diversity of our strong, supportive, caring, and quite colorful community. That’s where the music comes in.

Come see Kehlani, Tove Lo, and a truly diverse lineup of artists across the Festival’s three stages – the Park Stage, the Plaza Stage (Latin), and the Boulevard Stage (Hip-Hop/R&B). For more details and to get first access to this year’s performers as they get announced, check back at lapride.org/pride-2018 regularly.
