It’s never too early to think about (or celebrate) Pride, and this announcement has us ready to dive straight into August. Returning for a second year is PNE’s annual HAPPYLAND festival, and there are a ton of talented performers and artists on the roster.

Presented by Timbre Concerts and Sunrise Series, the festival is set to transform the PNE Amphitheatre and amusement park into a vibrant, inclusive space to celebrate Pride through live entertainment and music.

Best of all? Proceeds from each ticket will be donated to Vancouver Pride Society and QMUNITY, a group committed to supporting & funding LGBTQAI2S+ community members, events, and organizations.

2023 lineup

Headlined by country icon Orville Peck, last year’s festival certainly kicked things off with a bang. And this year is shaping up to be even more exciting, with drag icons & performers Trixie Mattel, Alaska, Priyanka, Pabllo Vittar, and Slayyyter lighting up the stage.

As well, this year’s event will be hosted by none other than model/actor Venus, along with the local Non-Binary Super Group, ENBY6.
