    Electronic music producer Marshmello and pop singer Zara Larsson are set to headline the 2019 Capital Pride Concert, the Capital Pride Alliance announced on Thursday.

    The show starts at 1 p.m. and coincides with the Capital Pride Festival, which begins at noon. About 350,000 people are expected to attend and there will be three stages, hundreds of exhibitors, a beverage garden, a family zone and food vendors. 

    “The Capital Pride Alliance is thrilled to announce such a diverse slate of performers for the 2019 Pride Concert," Capital Pride Alliance Executive Director Ryan Bos said in a news release. "The wide range of talent, experience and contributions of these artists speaks to our theme of shhhOUT: Past, Present & Proud."
