Four-time Grammy-winning group TLC has been booked to headline the San Diego Pride music festival, they will perform on Sunday, July 15, 2018.

"We are so looking forward to performing at San Diego Pride!” said Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins. “There is so much power in expressing yourself without fear. We hope all LGBTQ people will stand proud and be exactly who they are. Persist with Pride!”

The group formed in Atlanta almost 30 years ago and became one of the biggest R&B brands the country had ever seen. Their hits include "Creep,” "No Scrubs,” "Unpretty,” and their signature song “Waterfalls” written by late band member Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes.

“We’re excited to have Chilli and T-Boz perform at their first Pride ever and join the list of artists who have graced our stage and stood proud with our community,” said Gardenia Partridge, entertainment director of San Diego Pride. “We look forward to announcing the full 2018 Pride festival lineup, which showcases a spectrum of local and emerging LGBTQ artists, as well as some strong, talented, vocal allies.”

San Diego's Pride Festival will take place on July 14-15, 2018 in Balboa Park and will include over 90 acts across four stages, including breakthrough LGBTQ acts from international and local artists.

San Diego Pride Executive Director, Fernando Lopez says he is proud of everyone involved in making 2018 Pride the best one ever, including musical legends like TLC.

"Having headliners who uphold the integrity of advocacy for the LGBTQ community is key to ensuring Pride’s Festival is more than just a weekend party. Chilli and T-Boz of TLC have consistently used their platform to uplift the LGBTQ community and to create positive conversations around HIV and AIDS that literally changed and saved lives for decades. We are honored to have them join us at San Diego Pride’s Festival," said Lopez. 

Last summer the group released their latest album titled TLC.
