My Dear Disco, a band based in Ann-Arbor, Mich., will come to the main stage at 5 p.m. The group's MySpace profile, at www.myspace.com/mydeardisco , describes its debut recording, DanceThink LP, as a fusion of electro-pop, funk, rock and techno.

Miscellaneous fun stuff: There will be a dunking booth and the final of the Pride Festival Idol. Contestants, who competed for a spot in the singing competition earlier this year, will croon their favorites for a chance at the crown.
