Kylie Minogue Dazzles in Headlining Set at OutLoud Music Festival at West Hollywood Pride

 

Night three of the OutLoud Music festival at West Hollywood Pride continued the festival’s momentum, with an evening packed full of lively performances to close out West Hollywood Pride weekend. Walking into the festival grounds, it was hard not to immediately notice the impact that Minogue’s headlining performance would have on the evening – as attendees all across the grounds showed up in head-to-toe red outfits mimicking the singer’s iconic “Padam Padam” music video look. But the evening’s lineup proved to have depth beyond its headliner, with Vincint, Ashnikko, Big Freedia, and Diplo all bringing high energy, celebratory performances. 

 

Early performers Vincint and Ashnikko both brought impressive sets to the mainstage – with Vincint’s vocals shining and Ashnikko’s stage presence rivaling the biggest performers of the weekend. Big Freedia continued with the most interactive and engaging set of the weekend, at one point bringing nearly twenty members of the audience on stage. Diplo’s set combined his own hits with classic dance songs. To close out his set, Diplo brought out Bebe Rexha whose vocal talents impressed as she performed her hit “I’m Good (Blue).”

 

The night was all about headliner Kylie Minogue, who dazzled with a set full of hit songs, outfit changes, and special surprises. At one point, West Hollywood Mayor John Erickson joined Minogue onstage to present her with a street sign that read “Kylie Minogue Way” and declaring June 2nd in West Hollywood as Kylie Minogue Day. The Australian performer closed out her set with words of gratitude for the LGBTQ community, and a string of hits that included “Padam Padam,” and “Can’t Get you Out of My Head,” before closing the set with “Love at First Sight.” 



Special Guests: Performers all night brought out an A-list lineup of special guests. Vincint brought out Adam Lambert, who had performed his own set earlier in the weekend, to perform their song “Another Lover.” Big Freedia brought out Grammy award winning artist Macy Gray to perform their new single “I Am,” which the duo described as a pride month anthem. Diplo brought out Rupaul’s drag race season 13 winner Symone and Bebe Rexha to accompany his set, and Kylie Minogue brought out Orville Peck to announce and debut their upcoming single “Midnight Ride.” Minogue described the new song, which is set to feature Diplo and Peck as a “cross between the two artists,” blending country music with her signature disco sound. 

 

The Highlights: Ashnikko set the pace early on with a performance that included her running all across the stage, doing handstands, and at one point bringing out pom poms to perform her track “Cheerleader” while emulating a deranged cheer squad dance. There was an unpredictability to her entire set that made it intoxicating – you never knew what she was going to say, you never knew what she was going to do, but from start to finish the whole crowd was having a great time. 

 

Kylie Minogue taught the crowd a lesson in how to headline a festival – singing hit after hit to an audience who knew every single word. Everything from her setlist, to her choreography, to her incredibly talented team of backup singers and dancers was perfect and ended the festival at fever pitch. 

 

The Verdict: Sunday night’s OutLoud Music Festival at West Hollywood Pride was the perfect way to open up pride month, full of joyful performances that celebrated the LGBTQ community. The festival’s continuous growth in popularity should leave Southern Californian’s excited for future years to come.
