LeatherPride Belgium 2016, a weeklong celebration of fetish life, kicks off in Antwerp on Wednesday February 17th with discount shopping events at the city’s fetish retail stores during the day, and in the evening check out Antwerp’s leather clubs and bars and, more importantly, check out the guys who are in town for LeatherPride.
On Thursday there’s more opportunities to max out your credit cards in Antwerp’s shops, booze and cruise sessions, while that evening The Boots hosts the LeatherPride Opening Reception where all drinks are free between 9pm and 10.30pm. Of course, the weekend heralds the arrival of the main parties, the backbone of LeatherPride Belgium 2016.
Friday 19th it’s Meltdown, the official LeatherPride Opening Party. A men-only party, Meltdown will have a fully equipped playroom and Europe’s leading fetish DJs will whip the crowds into a frenzy with pumping beats. Saturday daytime sees the fourth edition of Darklands, the world’s only indoor gay fetish festival with free workshops, classes and demos, a fetish market plus a great line-up of shows featuring porn stars, DJs and performers.
Saturday night it’s Rage, the main party of LeatherPride. With an impressive stage, the hottest international DJs, including ex porn star Spencer Reed, and their biggest and best darkroom this party is not for the faint hearted. Darklands continues throughout the day on Sunday before the official Closing Party Crash.
All three parties take place at Waagnatie/Hangar 29 – Hall 2, Rijnkaai 150, 2000 Antwerpen and will enforce a strict dress code consisting of leather, rubber, sportswear, naked, uniform, pup, skinhead. The Dogs BolloXX presents the second edition of CAMP K-9, two days of puppy play at Darklands, culminating with the Mr Puppy Europe 2016 Contest on Sunday.
