First Ever Pinesfest Announces Betty Who As This Year's Headliner
The first ever Pinesfest - coming to Fire Island Pines Labor Day weekend - just announced its headliner for this year. And it is really, really good.
Betty Who, the pop diva who became an LGBT favorite after Spencer's Home Depot Marriage Proposal video went viral, is showing up and giving the island a show we are sure will be worth remembering.
There are three days filling up the schedule at Pinesfest - all with different themes. Saturday is Power of Community, Sunday is Muscle Beach Party, and Monday is Disco Revolution. Betty Who is headlining the Sunday Muscle Beach Party that also includes performances by Deanne, The Cube Guys, Felipe Lira, Eric Abobo, a Mr. Fire Island Contest and a session of Barry’s Beach Bootcamp.
Betty Who has played many LGBT centric events so far during her career, so it totally makes sense to add her to all the fun the weekend promises for festival goers.We love lots of Betty Who tunes, including, "All of You," "High Society," and of course her break-out hit, "Somebody Loves You." She also just released a cover of Donna Lewis' "I Love You Always Forever" that is also pretty fabulous.
Stay tuned for more information about the festival in our August 17 issue, when our interview with Pinesfest organizer and creator Greg Dyer gets published.
