Stockholm Pride 2016 is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to come out and support the LGBT community with some amazing music and live performances.

As an epicentre of schlager and euro-pop, it’s only natural that Stockholm has managed to land some of the hottest acts from Eurovision and Melodifestivalen. All the action will go down on Thursday July 28 on the Pride Park stage at Östermalms IP — a sports pitch located at Fiskartorpsvägen 2. The show starts at 19:00 local time.

Stockholm Pride 2016: Main stage line-up

This year’s line-up includes three Eurovision 2016 acts: Russia’s Sergey Lazarev, Spain’s Barei and Israel’s Hovi Star. Expect him to drop the word bishes more than a few times!

They’ll be joined by some other familiar names from the 2016 Eurovision season including The Hungry Hearts, who competed in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix and sang at the Wiwi Jam, and Bracelet, who made the final of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix.

Vintage Eurovision fans are in luck too. Sweden’s Lill-Babs (ESC 1961) and Luxembourg’s Baccara (ESC 1978) will also perform.

Melodifestivalen stars will be very well represented by Velvet, The Moniker, Anna Book, Erik Linder and Lili & Susie. No word yet on whether Anna will sing any songs that once entered the national selection in Moldova.

Shirley Clamp and Behrang Miri will host the event — and, presumably, sing.

Humble youself that my nicknames here have been Plum – Summerwine – Summerwine=Plum – Plum.
It was initially Plum, then it became Summerwine because of for some technical(?) inability to use Plum, then Summerwine=Plum to label that I am the same and then Plum again.
Calm down. I am not hiding. But I am ignoring you.

Don’t expect him to perform half-naked in Stockholm. Those times are gone 😛

Good choice of video! LOL!
Somebody here was very concerned about Sergey’s naked torso, so there is no need to wait for the event! Welcome!
And hopefully William is already on his way to Stockholm since Sergey is already there and his schedule there is so tight=)))
I believe they will meet!

I wish Sergey sang “Stumblin'”, “You’re the only one” and, of course, “Take it off” 😀
By the way, I wonder, that Wiwiblogs didnt show the music video for his song “Stumblin””. It was really hot and provocative. There’re a couple of gay-kisses and the action, by itself takes place in a gay club. So, you can see it on Lazarev’s vevo channel =)

Sergey is great person. He supports LGBTQ. I regret but I can`t be in Stockholm on 27 th July.

@Maru fr: And understanding either shade or sarcasm is not a skill you clearly master with brilliance. Maybe seeing Sergey live will help you get some motivation … who knows.

While everybody argues about the cats and mice in the kitchen not getting along … I am bewildered why anybody is fetishizing about the possibility of Sergey showing his naked torso finally at such an appropriate event …

Some of her demands forced the organizers to be wary of political actions on the part of her delegation and herself. Thast was why she wasn’t finally invited.

As far as I know Jamala was invited to Belarus, but she has set some demands… and they decided to refuse this intention! 😀 “Star sickness”?? Lol

Guys, dont reply to the comments of (J)ESC Fanatic about Russia. He never have been there, but writing extremely disgusting comments about the country. Poor miserable person full of hatred…ignore him:)

You are right. And continuing the list of unvisited big events she won’t take part in New Wave contest in September although her participation in this contest in 2009, brought her the victory and the first little fame.

@Padraig. Jamala’s schedule is too busy? Nice try. From what I could see, she is totally tabooed in the region and is scavenging on music left overs. Neither Azerbaijan nor Belarus wanted her for their biggest national music festivals. Looks like she is not invited to anything of musical importance outside her country. But trying to save her face is a noble though fruitless attempt of yours

You definitely sd avoid topics related to both Russia and Lazarev as long as you get your “truth” from Wikipedia and until you start listening to poeople and communicate in a proper way. I am not the 1st to tell you this. Nice dreams to you. No further discussion, really.

I have nothing against Russia. I’m just telling the truth, which is that there are many homophobes there. After all, it’s not the only country.

Anyway, I’m not gonna keep talking to someone who gibes me. Have a good evening. 🙂

It would be fine if he will sing some other song! But it`s highly unlikely…

@fikri
I don`t think so! All in Russia knows about his attitude towards the LGBT community. He openly speaks about it. Anyway, his fans will kill everyone who will dare to offend him!)) 😀 Don`t worry!

I was very polite and pationate to you for a very long time and I did my best to explain so many things to you…
But I see your unchangeable attitude towards Russia and of course there will be no more steps forward from me. Sorry.

Btw, where is Jamala? I am just asking.

Padraig Muldoon

@Plum Jamala is doing Alsang Pa Skansen on the 26th and then G.A.Y nightclub in London on the 30th. Her schedule was probably too tight to fit this in.

I still have my doubts about Russia. I have heard that there are many homophobes there. But of course you know much more about your own country. You could have been a little more polite though. 🙂

Conchita is actually singing today on Amsterdam Dam Square with Trijntje Oosterhuis, Shirma Rouse( Background singer of Anouk) Jennie Lena (background singer of Trijntje) and a lot of others! Amsterdam is hosting Europride this year so two weeks of gay goodness. And I am so happy that hunky Sergey is singing on prides.. the true winner of 2016 imo!
