Pixie Lott, 5 After Midnight and Ultra Nate added to Manchester Pride lineup

Pixie Lott has released three studio albums since bursting onto the pop scene in 2009

Manchester Pride organizers have released the latest round of performers, including Pixie Lott, 5 After Midnight and Ultra Nate.

The trio will join a slew of already-revealed star names such as Spice Girl Melanie C and Clean Bandit.

The latter are currently riding high on worldwide charts with hits singles Rockabye and Symphony.

Strictly Come Dancing star Pixie has hit the top spot of the UK singles charts three times herself.

She has reached the summit with hits Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh), Boys and Girls and All About Tonight.

Meanwhile, boyband 5 After Midnight rose to fame on last year’s series of The X Factor, and will be making a return to the small screen tonight on the Britain’s Got Talent final.

Their standout moment on the show was of course their memorable cover of the Spice Girls’ Say You’ll Be There.

Perhaps Sporty Spice Mel will join them on stage?

Meanwhile, Ultra Nate hit the big time with her 90s hit Free.

She’s released six studio albums in a career spanning over 25 years.

Other names confirmed for the LGBTI extravaganza include 2015 X Factor winner Louisa Johnson and 2016 runner up, Saara Aalto.

What’s more, TV star Gok Wan will turn DJ for the August Bank Holiday extravaganza.

Hercules and the Love Affair’s Shaun J Wright will also be taking to the decks at the Gaydio Dance Arena.

Manchester Pride returns from 25-28 August (Friday-Monday).
