Rita Ora to headline 'London's biggest gay festival in a decade'
Rita Ora will headline what is being billed as "the first credible large-scale gay festival in London for over a decade" this summer.
Holly Johnson will make a special appearance, marking his first London performance in several years. He will play his greatest hits “Love Train” and “Americanos” together with classic Frankie Goes to Hollywood material, including “Welcome to the Pleasuredome”, “Relax” and “The Power of Love”.
As One has been held as an LGBT event in Vauxhall’s Fire since 2010, and now promoter Orange Nation wants to expand the night into a one day festival.
“We felt it was time that London was no longer overlooked when it came to a major gay outdoor entertainment event. We will bring together the cream of London’s gay scene alongside the world’s most internationally renowned gay brands,” said Craig Elder of Orange Nation.
As One in the Park will also feature a presence from cabaret club Madame JoJo’s, lesbian festival L Fest, and gay bar Ku Bar. Further acts and DJs will be announced soon.
