Back in February, Milwaukee Pride Inc.—the parent organization of PrideFestannounced Wisconsin’s largest LGBTQIA+ event would return to Henry Mair Festival Park and help kick off the city’s festival season June 6-8. Just over two months before the festival begins its 36th installment (and 27th edition at the Summerfest grounds), PrideFest is ready to announce its headliners.

Today, Milwaukee Pride Inc. unveiled some of the internationally known talent that will be performing on the festival’s five stages over the course of three nights. Between opening night on Thursday, June 6 and the festival’s crescendo on Saturday, June 8, PrideFest will feature musical performances by Mya, Icona Pop, Archuleta, CupcakKe, and Dixon Dallas. Beyond the music, PrideFest will also feature appearances by worldwide drag sensations like Alaska, Violet Chachki, Envy Peru, and Ada Vox on opening night. There will also be a Las Vegas variety show featuring Murray’s Misfits on the final night.

In addition to the eclectic and impressive entertainment options (including programming at the Children’s Stage, the Dance Pavilion, and the Stonewall Stage & History Exhibit that will announced in the coming weeks), this year’s PrideFest will offer “Throwback Thursday” and “Flashback Friday” specials in which Molson Coors products will be sold at 1996 prices. There’s also a food drive on Thursday and discounted $15 admission offered to seniors every day of the festival. Buy tickets now and stay tuned for the full entertainment lineup as PrideFest approaches.
