Split into a day party running from 14:00-22:00 and an evening event from 22:00-05:00, Lakota's 'Werk It' will combine performances and input from a selection of local community groups with a selection of all-star DJ sets to form one of Bristol's biggest-ever pride events.
Kicking things off in the daytime will be a celebration of the gay liberation movement featuring the Bristol Ballroom Community and the Shade Cartel featuring resident queens Venus and Chardonnay.
The early session will also feature an LSS (Legends, Statements and Stars) slot, where self-identified LGBTQ+ rappers, writers, poets, beatmakers, singers and activists will be invited to take the stage in the wake of ongoing political unrest.
From there, Lakota will be hosting a huge Pride party until the early hours, as the venue is turned into a modern-day Studio 54, the iconic nightclub at the epicenter of the New York scene in the 1970s.
World-renowned DJ-to-the-stars Fat Tony and British icon Gok Wan top a lineup that also includes DJing heavyweight Gideön and Bristol's own Booty Bass collective.
Tickets for Lakota's 'Werk It' day and night parties on Saturday 10 July are on sale now and can be found here. For more information, or to find out what else is coming up as Lakota reopens this summer, head to their website.
