Presenting the LGBT Festival for London: As One in the Park 2013
Since 2010 Vauxhall’s Fire has presented the legendary As One, London’s biggest multi-room gay club event, uniting the biggest brands and promoters from across the world for special one-off events. On 26th May Bank Holiday this year, Victoria Park in Hackney will host the event in a major outdoor extravaganza and establish London’s first large-scale LGBT festival for London.
Promoted by Orange Nation, the festival promises an exciting list of performers, including BRIT nominee Rita Ora as the main stage headliner, special guest Holly Johnson, Connor Maynard, Katy B, X Factor stars Union J and Rylan, and Israeli superstar DJ Offer Nissim. There will also be DJ sets by Roger Sanchez, Skin (Skunk Anansie), Boy George, and DJ/vocalist, Peyton. Further acts and DJs will be announced soon.
Four large indoor arenas and five additional stages will be hosted by some of the world’s leading gay party brands. The Circuit Arena will be presented by international circuit parties, Matinee, WE Party, The Week, Scream, and Rapido, while the Best of British Arena will be hosted by Beyond, Orange, and Salvation. Other brands involved in the event will be Madame Jojo’s, Wild Fruit, Delooded, Shadow Lounge, Popstarz, Bearracuda, FNDHRR, Girl Action, L Fest, Mint, Code, Ku Bar, Rupert Street and Comptons, with more to be announced.
Craig Elder at Orange Nation tells us “it’s time London is no longer overlooked when it comes to a major gay outdoor entertainment event.” The festival will bring together the cream of London’s gay scene alongside the world’s most internationally renowned gay brands and some of the world’s biggest stars. We bring you As One in the Park!
