Brighton & Hove Pride are proud to welcome special guests Years & Years as a UK Pride Exclusive at the Pride Summer Of Love Festival in Preston Park on Saturday 5th August 2017.
The band were declared by the NME to be “the most important pop band of our time”, and are winners of the coveted BPI Critics Choice Award, BBC’s Sound of 2015, MTV Best UK and Ireland Act and five Brit Award nominations.
Olly Alexander’s openness about his sexuality, his willingness to campaign for equality and his frank interviews about living with depression have made him an important spokesperson in our online age. Olly stated, “I want to make videos and songs and art that celebrate all different kinds of sexuality and queer identities.” A choice that has enriched and emboldened the lives of a generation of LGBT+ people.
Dulcie Weaver from Brighton Pride, said: “Through their enchanting electronica and timeless song writing Years & Years deliver life-affirming pop that stands as a beacon in a world where the darkness of inequality can often overwhelm so many. Brighton Pride put community and campaigning at the heart of everything we do, and we cannot think of an artist that better embodies our Summer Of Love than Years & Years.”
Years & Years will join Pride Festival headliners the Pet Shop Boys and more at the UK’s Biggest Pride Festival.
