Tegan and Sara will be joining the WorldPride 2014 lineup in a performance at the closing ceremonies on June 29, at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, ON. The twin sister duo recently took away a triple win at the 2014 Juno Awards in Winnipeg, MB, for Single of the Year, Group of the Year, and Pop Album of the Year.
Tegan Quin stated on a Facebook status, “We attended our first Toronto Pride in 1999! YUP – we’re THAT old! Since then we have had the pleasure of celebrating Pride in Toronto with friends too many times to count. But this year is extra special! It’s WORLD Pride in Toronto! And WE are going to be there. Not just wandering around drinking lemonade and checking out the festivities this time. We’re actually playing this year! We couldn’t be more proud to be involved! See you there!”
Tegan and Sara will play along artists such as Chely Wright and Melissa Etheridge at WorldPride 2014. More artists are expected to be announced including musical genres from rock, pop, dance, hip hop, R&B, country, traditional, folk, retro, and disco on 10 free-to-attend, all-ages, open-air stages across the festival.
