British rock icon Skin to perform at Pride In London

Following a sell-out European tour as frontwoman for Skunk Anansie, it has been announced that Deborah Dyer will be performing her solo act as Skin on Saturday 8 July at Pride In London.

Skin, 49, will be performing a DJ set on the Radio Diva Women’s Stage which will be held for the first time in Leicester Square. The move to this more prominent location will provide the largest women’s stage in Pride In London’s history, which organisers expect will attract crowds of up to 5,000.

Since 2007, Skin branched out into producing and djing electronic dance music. She found her niche in techno, minimal and tech house, and has honed her skills at some of the most respected parties in the industry, including Carl Cox’s Music is Revolution in Ibiza, and collaborated with Nicole Moudaber.

Skin, who is openly bisexual and an advocator for women’s rights, will be joined by 23 other strong female artists sharing their musical talents. These include British newcomer Lots Holloway who released ‘World’s On Fire’, a melodic-pop single with a gritty political overtone, New York’s alternative rock group Betty, and Sarah Walk who’s poignant lyrics are refreshingly delivered in her unique androgynous vocals.

Polly Shute, Pride in London Director of Development and Strategic Partnerships, said:

“The acts set to perform on the Radio Diva Women’s Stage this year are amazing. They’ll be bringing the energy and entertainment to this iconic location for the first time and will make sure it’s a day to remember. We’re also thrilled to be working in partnership with Radio Diva and sponsors that include AB InBev, Amazon Music and Vodafone, who have helped make this happen.”

The Radio Diva Women’s Stage runs from 12:30 until 19:30. To view the full line-up and for further information click here.
