On 23, 24 and 25 August Cardiff will be covered in bright colours and glitter as Pride Cymru will celebrate its annual Big Weekend. This year marks the event’s 20th birthday, making it the biggest Pride Cymru event yet!
With tickets sales in full swing, it’s time to have a closer look at the tickets available and find the right one for you:
Early Birds: £5*
You snooze, you lose! Early risers have already grabbed all of these tickets for the Saturday, but Sunday ones are still available. This ticket is exactly the same as the standard time, just at a lower price and with limited availability. Better grab your early bird now, before it’s too late…
Standard Ticket – First Release: £7.50*
The standard ticket is exactly what it says on the label – standard entry into the Pride Cymru Big Weekend on the day you bought it for. What it will include? You’ll get to see over 40 performers and comedians, talented drag queens and kings that will entertain the masses, incredible street food stalls and so much more. There will be no packages, so tickets for each day have to be bought individually. You won’t be clever, by waiting, as again, these tickets have limited availability and once they sell out, our general tickets will go on sale.
Standard Ticket – Second Release: TBC*
This ticket is for the late bloomers, who decide to join in the festival fun a bit later. The ticket will include exactly the same as the Standard Ticket in the first release.
On the Door Ticket – Final Release: TBC
This ticket is for all the spontaneous visitors who decide to stop by and celebrate Pride with us on the day. Tickets can be bought on the door, however prices for these tickets are announced at a later date.
Extras – VIP Package: +£30
Whether you want to have access to exclusive areas, a complimentary welcome drink or have the chance to sit down, the VIP package will be the thing for you. After feedback from last year’s festival goers, we have also decided to add in a FastTrack lane. Skip the queue and get your VIP package. This package counts as an extra so standard tickets will have to be bought with it.
Accessibility Tickets: 2-4-1 Tickets
Inaccessibility to LGBT+ spaces should not leave you excluded, so if you want to join Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend then you should be able to. This ticket is for anyone with a disability and additional needs, whether these are visible or not. Get access to a disability platform to the main stage and our special facilities.

With a dedicated Family Area, where families can play, watch the shows and make the most of the festivities; children can enter the festival at a reduced price.

Children aged 14 and under will have to be accompanied by an adult, so make sure to get your own ticket sorted when you buy this one. All booking fees on these tickets are removed.
Now that you’re aware of the tickets available, it’s time to grab the right ticket for you. Last year over 50,000 people came together to celebrate equality and diversity over the weekend, making it a spectacular two days. This year, with an extra day added, it’s time to make this our most memorable Big Weekend yet and we cannot wait to have you there with us!
