Milwaukee, WI — PrideFest Milwaukee announced its 2014 headliners for what it has dubbed the nation’s largest showcase of LGBT talent.

Entertainment for the three-day weekend includes Bruce Vilanch and Chad Michaels on Friday, June 6; Chicago-area native Steve Grand, Mary Lambert, Big Freedia, and Macy Gray on Saturday, June 7; and the headliners for Sunday, June 8 are Lisa Lampanelli and Sandra Bernhard.

Nearly 100 national, regional and local performers will join these headliners on eight stages throughout the Summerfest grounds.

“We truly believe PrideFest Milwaukee offers something for every visitor,” said Kate Sherry, festival co-producer. “This year, we’re thrilled to host a dynamic mix of musical, comedy, and drag performances that reflects the diversity of LGBT culture and community.  We’re honored to have access to such stunning talent — and our showcase continues to grow every day.”

Tickets for PrideFest Milwaukee go on sale Friday, March 14. The festival will again offer the popular three-day, $30 weekend pass through June 6, 2014.  Single-day admission prices will be $13 in advance, $16 at the gate. Single-day VIP passes, which includes access to the exclusive VIP Deck, will be $100 in advance, or $225 for the three-day weekend. Organizers noted ticket prices remained the same as last year.

Festival goers will have the option of adding $1 to their ticket purchases to support the American Civil Liberties Union in their critical battle for marriage equality in Wisconsin.
