As One In The Park is London’s new LGBT festival, and GuySpy will be there in force! Being held in Victoria Park, Hackney, this Sunday, 26th May, As One In The Park is going to be THE event that kicks off the UK summer.

Presented by Orange Nation, the legendary clubbing group behind the iconic parties at FIRE and AREA, this will the biggest large-scale gay festival in London for over a decade.


And what talent they have lined up! Headlining on the Main Stage is the fabulous MOBO winning, Brit nominated Rita Ora, performing her three No. 1 singles taken from her No. 1 album, ‘Hot Right Now,’ ‘R.I.P,’ ‘How We Do (Party).’ Other acts include our very own Danny Hilton Music, fresh from his smashing gig at last month’s Miami Beach Pride. He’ll be performing his debut track ‘Loving You (For The Last Time),’ for the first time on home soil. Danny said: “I’ve always dreamed about playing a big UK festival – I can’t believe it’s just around the corner. I’m still sorting out my set list, but London, you’ll be in for a few surprises! It’s going to be great to see so many old friends, fans and supporters. If you’ve not got your ticket yet, hurry!” Danny will be on the Main Stage at 3pm.
