Conchita Wurst continues to rack up the airmiles. Following performances at gay pride events in London and Spain, Europe’s new Queen of Tolerance is headed to Manchester Pride. Madam Sausage will join All Saints, Anastacia and Rowetta at the festival on Saturday, August 23.
“We’re delighted to announce some great new artists, joining the already confirmed stellar line up for the 2014 Big Weekend,” Mark Fletcher, chief executive of Manchester Pride, said during the announcement. “We’re especially excited Conchita Wurst will be joining us following her stand out performance at Eurovision.”
“With this year’s Pride Fringe seeing a number of high profile events, the return of the Gaydio Dance Arena, and even more surprises in store, there’s a lot to love at Manchester Pride this year.”
Former X-Factor contestants Marcus Collins and Lucy Spraggan and former Happy Mondays singer Rowetta will also perform.
