Elsewhere on the Main Stage is S-Club 7 member turned solo artist Rachel Stevens and Australian electro-pop duo Confidence Man, who will once again delight the Mighty Hoopla crowds following a high-energy set in 2022. The line-up also includes ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ hit-maker Sophie Ellis-Bextor, R&B Soul legend Beverley Knight and 00’s music trailblazer Natasha Bedingfield.

Speaking about Mighty Hoopla 2023, Sunday’s headliner Olly Alexander said: “I’m very very excited to be back headlining the very fab queer extravaganza that is Mighty Hoopla! It’s been amazing to watch the festival grow over the years and I’m really thrilled to be part of such a stellar line-up of artists I really love!! I promise to bring pleather, giant toilet cubicles, PVC and the gayest show ever to Brockwell Park. Together our collective gay power will be unmatched!
