Words: Steve Brown
Mighty Hoopla is back with an already stellar line-up and more to be announced.
For the third year running, London’s biggest pure pop festival is set to return to Brockwell Park on June 8 for a second consecutive year – and for the first time, the festival will take place on a Saturday rather than a Sunday, so no need to book a day off work for that hangover.
Celebrating queerdom and diversity, the first batch of acts for this year’s event are not lacking in bangers with legends All Saints and Bananarama taking to the stage.
To add to the excitement, Liberty X, Samantha Mumba, Swedish pop star Tove Lo and Jamelia are all expected to perform as well.
Mumba – who is set to release a new studio album this year – was announced as the first artist on the official Twitter account on Christmas Day.
A few months ago we asked you what acts you wanted to see next year.... So the first artist we can announce for 2019 is Samantha Mumba wrapped in a big Christmas bow! 🎁— MightyHoopla (@mightyhoopla) December 25, 2018

Although the headliner is set to be announced in the upcoming weeks, it already sounds like it is going to be another successful festival.
As always, there will be a number of club nights and venues in attendance including Sink the Pink, Guilty Pleasures, Massaoke, The Cocoa Butter Club, Hungama, We Love Pop, Pluma, U OK Hun?, The Chateau and The Grand.
