Celebration Features Local Entertainers Julissa Veloz, BP Major, Hayla, Dario Benitez and more



Set in the newly redesigned bigger better brighter West Hollywood Park, LA PRIDE is thrilled to include beloved local favorites as part of the overall lineup of performers, DJ's and celebrity hosts. With expanded stages and more room to dance, LA PRIDE is the largest LGBT celebration in Southern California and takes place June 8-10. Advance tickets are on sale now.


Julissa Veloz' style spans opera, R&B and pop and has her quickly rising to stardom. Her single, "Take Control" rose up the Billboard Dance charts and went top ten in 8 countries. Her new songs, debuting at LA PRIDE, are already causing a commotion in the pop/dance music world and are expected to be big hits.


Since his mind-blowing performance at LA PRIDE in 2011, performing with Sam Sparro and Estelle, BP Major's music has been heard and performed around the world. With his goals of creating understanding, awareness and equality through his music, the tremendously creative and talented BP Major is one of the most unique additions to the Era of Glam Pop.


Drawing musical inspiration from her multi-cultural background, singer and percussionist Hayla brings a dynamic dash of exotica to LA PRIDE. With her global dance hits, "I'm Free," and "Paulina," currently spinning in the clubs and on dance radio, and having worked with a unique array of musicians and producers, Hayla's Mainstage performance will be awesome!


The sexy and passionate Dario Benitez is a multi-talented singer/songwriter with music that is an eclectic mix of Spanish and Electronic Pop. The winner of the Most Entertaining Artist Award at the USA World Showcase in Las Vegas, Dario bares his soul as a performer and is definitely one to watch at LA PRIDE.


Other local favorites performing as part of the iconic LA PRIDE celebration include the sultry and sensual Le Kat, the feel-good Dan Holguin, out, proud and sexy Ben Roman, pop star on the rise Kelsey B., the fun and fashionable pop trio Decolletage, electronic rock duo Playboy School, Damien Christopher and The Pet Project and the wildly popular Upright Cabaret.
