|Galantis, SG Lewis, LP Giobbi and Ty Sunderland are set to headline the first-annual Planet Pride festival in Brooklyn, taking place June 25 at Brooklyn Mirage.

The 12-hour event will feature three stages and gives back to charity, benefiting Heritage of Pride and FEMME House, a 501(c)(3) fostering more equitable opportunities for women and LGBTQ+ individuals in music.
“I’m psyched to elevate the Pride festival experience with an incredible, diverse lineup across 3 massive stages at NYC’s best venue,” says producer Jake Resnicow. “Pride is all about giving back and we’re honored to benefit FEMME HOUSE, which is paving the way for LGBTQ+ individuals in music through scholarships, mentorships and workshops.”
“I’m so gagged to not only be DJing, but to be bringing these dance music legends together for one party to celebrate Pride. It’s going to be a very special day,” says Ty Sunderland.
The one-day event will boast a mix of musical acts, drag shows, DJ sets and performance artists. Along with Galantis, SG Lewis, LP Giobbi and Ty Sunderland, the event will feature a surprise popstar appearance, performances by RuPaul Drag Race’s Aquaria, Gottmik and Violet Chachki, and DJ sets by Alexis Tucci, Allison Nunes, Ben Bakson, Dan Slater, Fabio Luigi, Spencer H, Las Bibas from Vizcaya and Matt Denton. Additional acts and performers will be announced soon.
