The Atlanta Pride Committee is going all out to ensure a fun and lively entertainment lineup that includes Andy Bell of Erasure and Amy Ray of Indigo Girls, who also promise to entertain with songs from their solo work.
But there are plenty of other acts that will take the Coca-Cola and Bud-Light stages at the fest in Piedmont Park Oct. 13-14. Today, the APC released the full line up that includes local bands such as the Sexual Side Effects and singer and actress Kat Graham, who stars as Bonnie Bennett in CW's "Vampire Diaries," filmed in Covington, about 30 minutes from Atlanta.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to bring some of our community’s most talented artists as well as nationally recognized Grammy-winning names to the Pride stage for 2012,” said Glen Paul Freedman, board chair of the Atlanta Pride Committee.
“People often ask how we choose our entertainment. We do our best to offer a little something for everyone over the course of the weekend. We certainly think we have accomplished that this year as the line up includes everything from pop and hip-hop to dance and country, ” Freedman said..
