Fatboy Slim to play Brighton Pride

Superstar DJ Fatboy Slim will be spinning the decks at this year's gay pride festival in Brighton.

The Right Here, Right Now chart-topper will get the crowd sweating in the Wild Fruit dance tent at the LGBT party in Preston Park on 1 September.

Fatboy Slim, otherwise known as Norman Cook, said he was happy to be gigging in his hometown again.

'Thank heavens for the Olympics. After many years of missing pride because it always fell on the busiest weekend of my year, the date has moved to September so I can finally join the fun.

'I am looking forward to shaking my lallies with the best of them in my home town.'

Also supporting the 20th anniversary pride in the UK city is legendary Brighton duo the Freemasons.

The Grammy nominated act, who have played the Sydney Mardi Gras and New York Pride, will be bringing it home to play a storming set.

This year’s pride has already donated over £10,500 ($16,700) to local LGBT and HIV causes, raised from their pledge to donate £1 from every ticket sold to charity.

Early Bird tickets for Brighton Pride are now sold out but advance tickets for the  event are available from Pride Brighton and Hove website here.
