Twin Cities Pride announces 2014 music lineup

The 42nd annual Twin Cities Pride weekend is brimming with live entertainment. On the weekend of June 28-29, more than 80 artists will take over Loring Park for a series of concerts on four stages. The centerpiece of the celebration is Saturday's Pride in Concert show, featuring Australian pop sensation Betty Who, who put on an electrifying show at 7th St Entry earlier this year.

Joining Who will be gay country star Steve Grand, disco great Thelma Houston, and former Snap! vocalist Thea Austin, aka the featured voice on "Rhythm is a Dancer." On the free stages is an eclectic mix of local talent including Toki Wright, Pennyroyal, the Lioness, Hollow Boys, and countless others blending two days of hip-hop, rock, folk, soul, and more. The full schedule and lineups are below.

All stages are free, unless otherwise marked.
