A year ago, PrideFest celebrated its 25th anniversary with record revenue and increased attendance. This month, one of the nation’s pre-eminent LGBT festivals has drawn on the extra cash and good vibrations to secure a broadly appealing lineup of old favorites, new flavors and, of course, divas. This includes the Indigo Girls, whose style of outspoken, supportive folk rock delighted a sold-out crowd in 2008. The Miller Lite Mainstage will also host controversy-seeking alt-rocker Amanda Palmer as well as the theatrical, electro-rock dance project Dangerous Muse. Other notable attractions include Andy Bell of Erasure, Sophie B. Hawkins and the Mr. and Miss PrideFest pageant.
