Discussing his headline set, Years & Years’ 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! It’s going to be really sexy and fun and I can’t wait!’”
Festival organiser Glyn Fussell added: “Every year we listen to what people want and I truly believe that this year we have delivered the most mind blowing line-up with the full width and breadth of the pop universe.”

Mighty Hoopla made its post-COVID comeback in 2021, with a line-up including Atomic Kitten, Becky Hill, Raye and Cheryl.
Reviewing the last year’s edition, NME wrote: “One on level, it’s a fabulous antidote to some of the more testosterone-fuelled rock fests; on another, it’s an unexpectedly touching and perhaps slightly subversive exercise in nostalgia. At Mighty Hoopla, pop acts like Atomic Kitten who might have been dismissed as “disposable” during their chart heyday can prove their longevity by attracting a large and adoring audience.”
This year’s festival then welcomed Steps and Sugababes as headliners, with Anastacia, Self Esteem, Jessie Ware and Basement Jaxx also on the bill.
