The biggest event of Brighton’s jam-packed calendar: Pride 2017 is here! A celebration of LGBT culture is set to take place this weekend, and we simply can’t wait, not least because we’ll be hosting our very own BIMM stage on Saturday.
Joining us at the Old Steine in the Pride Pleasure Gardens will be a host of huge bands and performers from across our colleges, including a very special guest appearance from BIMM Brighton’s very own Freddie Mercury tribute act: Luke Antony.
Luke will be paying homage to the legendary Queen frontman at 7 pm, before a highly-anticipated headline set from One Eyed Jacks – a BIMM Brighton seven-piece who blend rock, soul and funk to get hips shaking; expect infectious grooves and an unmissable set.
We’ve pulled all the stops out for our big debut. As Pride’s organisers say: “Expect the very best BIMM has to offer with a huge line-up of new and exciting bands as performers charm you with everything from Indie to Folk and Punk.”
We’ve had some huge names come through our doors at BIMM over the years, from James Bay, George Ezra, Tom Odell, Izzy Bizu and Brighton’s The Kooks so it gives us great joy to welcome a new generation of up and coming acts to this summer’s event.
We’re thrilled to be joining the city of Brighton – a place which we have called home for over ten years now – to celebrate the city’s vibrant culture and creativity. We’ll be raising a glass to equality, LGBT rights and free expression so please join us for a day to remember.
As always, entry to Pride is free (subject to capacity), although entrance may be limited to Pride Festival wristband holders and those with a BIMM student pass at peak times. You’ll find a full line-up and more details of the day below. See you Saturday!
