Five-time ARIA winner Katie Noonan will headline Brisbane Pride Fair Day on Saturday 2 October. Brisbane Pride Entertainment Director Harry K said the legendary singer will head an entertainment line-up spread over three stages.

Brisbane Pride Fair Day takes place in New Farm Park following the Pride Rally and March. The rally begins at 10 am on the corner of Brunswick and Ann Street. Following that, the ralliers march loudly and proudly down Brunswick Street to the park.

Katie Noonan previously performed for royalty and international leaders. In 2018, she was musical director of the Commonwealth Games Opening and Closing ceremonies on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Now, after 20 studio albums, 26 ARIA nominations and, of course, multiple platinum record sales, Katie Noonan is coming to Pride.

More announcements in coming days

Harry K said this year’s Brisbane Pride Fair Day would feature the strongest entertainment lineup in the events 30+ year history.

“Obviously, the times we live in present challenges. Despite that, we managed to book some incredible artists. So, on 2 October, the three big stages in New Farm Park will come alive with Katie Noonan and other acts to be announced in the coming days.

“Brisbane Pride Fair Day will bring together one of the best one-day entertainment lineups seen in Brisbane for some time. In addition to the musicians and singers, look forward to the best drag Brisbane has to offer, pulling out all stops on this one day of the year.”

The official Fair Day Afterparty happens later that night with the PROUD Brisbane Pride Afterparty 2021 at The Warehouse. Emily Williams leads the lineup there along with the FLUFFY Allstars and Thicc Shake Crew.
