DANCE music group Cascada have been announced as the headline act at next month's Swansea Pride event.

The German-British group, whose popular hits include Everytime We Touch and British number one track, Evacuate the Dance Floor, are billed to perform at Singleton Park on Saturday, June 28.

Peter Martin, Swansea Pride's event director, said the festival was getting better every year. "We are thrilled to have such a great headline act this year," he said.

"Swansea Pride really does get better each year. Cascada is going to lift the roof on the OMG Big Top stage in Singleton Park.

"This year is the sixth Swansea Pride event and while we're not the biggest Pride event in the UK we've certainly got a world class act heading for Swansea on June 28."

Cascada represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 and have sold over 30 million albums worldwide. They are currently riding high in the US charts with their new single Blink.

Swansea Pride is the annual Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) event for Swansea and South West Wales. Neil Roberts, marketing and PR director, said the act had appeal across the board.

"Cascada has a wide fan base," he said. "We already have a few hen parties wanting to attend. We are keen for everybody to integrate with each other regardless of their sexuality which helps breaks down barriers. Swansea Pride is the only day of the year where everybody is completely equal."

Cascada played at Maspalomas Mardi Gras in Gran Canaria last weekend. Swansea is their only Pride event in the UK this year.

Also on the bill are X Factor finalists Kingsland Road.
