Get Ready For NYC Pride 2017

Pride Island offers a reimagined take of Pier 26 where music and community take center stage.

From legendary soul singers to indie pop bands, NYC Pride has announced a new 3-day cultural experience featuring Patti LaBelle, Tegan and Sara, and Years & Years taking place from Friday June 23 to Sunday June 25, 2017 at Pier 26.

Pride Island offers a reimagined take of Pier 26 where music and community take center stage.

Pride Island Director Jose Ramos said, “While LGBT Pride at its heart is about activism and social change, we also believe that our community needs a space to celebrate who we are and what we’ve achieved, and that’s why we created Pride Island. Each day focuses on different musical sounds and styles that people from all walks of life will be excited about; from celebrated music icon Patti LaBelle to indie pop stars Tegan and Sara and Years & Years.”

Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Deborah Cox will open the event on Friday with her classic R&B tunes while DJ Lina spins. Pattie LaBelle will follow with powerful renditions of timeless hits such as “On My Own” and “Lady Marmalade”.

Saturday’s lineup includes Tegan and Sara and British electronic “King” trio Years & Years. Rounding out the night of new age sounds are Róisín Murphy, Gallant, Dimitri from Paris, and Occupy The Disco.

Sunday’s headliners are yet to be announced but the stage will be lit up by Chus & Ceballos, Cindel, and Scott Martin.

NYC Pride is committed to support the LGBT movement and will staff Pride Island and many other NYC Pride events with volunteers from LGBT-focused community organizations, allowing the organizations to raise critical funds that support their work.

Managing Director Chris Frederick said, “Each year, our community grant program supports organizations to grow and thrive. Giving back and standing together as allies with our fellow LGBT organizations is a fundamental goal of NYC Pride’s work.”
