LGBT+ Festival Portugal

21 February 2022 - Fyne Times

Winner of the World Travel Awards ‘Best European Destination’ award for 4 consecutive years, this Summer, Portugal will play host to an all-inclusive celebration of the diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community. The aptly named LGBT+ Festival will take place from July 1st-3rd 2022. The festival’s main site will be found at the Douro riverbank in Porto; featured in Unesco’s World Heritage list since 1996 and titled the World’s Leading City Break Destination in 2020. This event will be a new chapter in the book of music festivals, as the first openly LGBTQIA+ inclusive festival.

The festival will feature the talents of Iggy Azalea, Melanie C, Little Boots, The Illustrious Blacks, Eliza Legzdina, Gloria Groove, Sammy Jo (Scissor Sisters), Bimini Bon Boulash, Peaches, Todrick Hall, Ludmilla, Blaya, Jodie Harsh and many more big names in the music industry, to be announced in due course. Performances by international DJs, artists, bands and dancers will be enjoyed by up to 35,000 people, across 4 stages, all over the city of Porto.

The attendees will have 72 hours of non-stop fun and celebration that will continue from the main venue to the vibrating nightlife of the city, pulsating through themed afterparties at various local clubs and boat parties that will literally dock at the venue. They will have tailored experiences, such as pool parties with astonishing views and helicopter rides over the ocean. All of this with a sense of pride and appreciation for the LGBT+ culture.

The Apollon Group have organised this festival to celebrate the music, the art and, most importantly, the people that allow the LGBT+ community to flourish. The festival environment in its entirety will be a safe space for all those who believe that identity and sexuality have multitudes of expression. To ensure attendees are able to celebrate to their fullest extent, the Apollon Group have partnered with the Portuguese Secretary of State for Tourism and the municipality of Porto, as well a vast selection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and hotels in the city of Porto, allowing for a unique and inclusive experience.
