Cormac Cashman, co-founder and promoter of Mother had this to say about the Pride lineup:

"After three years without our Pride Block Party, we wanted our comeback to be an entire weekend of shows. With performances from some incredible queer talent and allies. This is without a doubt the biggest Pride show we will ever have thrown. We can't wait to welcome people back to celebrate together."

Lisa Connell, co-founder and promoter of Mother added:

"During lockdown, Mother made a promise to our community that we would dance again. It’s only right that for our first Pride party in three years, we programmed some of the most exciting and creative live acts to help us keep that promise. We're so proud of all the acts we have programmed. We can't wait to celebrate with our LGBTQ+ family in June."
