Out Loud Fest will take over a number of different venues during Brighton and Hove Pride Summer Festival.
Out Loud Fest is a new addition to the Pride festivities this summer, bringing together Brighton’s exciting live music scene and the city’s gay community. Between the 30th of July and the 2nd of August Out Loud Fest will feature queer music promoters and some of the best new bands from Brighton and beyond. Out Loud Fest celebrates the diversity of both the gay scene and the music scene here in Brighton. If you love live music, Out Loud Fest provides a much-needed live alternative to the club nights at this year’s Pride festival.
As part of this Music is My Boyfriend will take over Audio for 1 evening on the night before Pride, Friday August 1st.
Live sets from:
Cats In Paris
Music is My Boyfriend are very pleased to welcome back Manchester's amazing Cats In Paris supplying many oddball pop gems. Think Beefheart. Think Animal Collective. Think better! Now signed to Akoustic Anarkhy debut single 'Foxes / Terrapins' sold out in no time at all. They're now warming up to the release of debut album 'Courtcase 2000' in late August.
"like Jamie T staggering through an Edgar Alan Poe daydream, if I said it was great, I'd be lying – it's brilliant" – Unpeeled
Already Peaches-approved, Alan MX kicks out beat-crunching laptop funk, seemingly in his sleep. Located somewhere on a curve that takes in the solo meanderings of Thom Yorke, the pop licks of Justin Timberlake and the stark humanity of PJ Harvey. No wonder he was instantly signed up by the first record company he sent a demo to!
"the expansive sound of Alan MX is remarkable" - Gaydar Radio
Jacob’s Stories aka Brightonian Stuart Lee performs haunting, heart achingly beautiful music in a similar vein to early-Patrick Wolf. He's recently supported Marc Almond and things have only been getting bigger and better since the release of latest album 'Undisciplined Art'.
