Darklands Festival 2025 - Celebrating 15 Years

OUR JOURNEY CONTINUOUS

As we mark 15 years of our extraordinary journey, we continue to glow, together, with Darklands serving as a beacon of hope and unity. It’s not just a gathering, it’s a movement. A testament to the power of embracing one’s true essence and letting it glow.

The spirit of our community has the power to create bridges of understanding and love. That’s what our community is all about. That’s what Darklands is all about.
Welcome to Darklands 2025.

CHANGES ON THE HORIZON

A new layout for Hall 1
A revised layout of Hall 1 doubles the dance floor at the Mr-S-Leather Stage. The darkroom in Hall 1 will also change significantly and become larger then ever before

Alpha Deck & A highway to the Playroom
In addition to an enlarged area, it will be possible for all visitors to make a passage to the main darkroom via the Alpha Decks’s stairs without having to traverse the party crowd on the dance floor.

Temperature rising
As all of our horny f*ckers get the temperature rising quickly we’re happy to announce that the venue has informed us they are (finally) installing a ventilation system to better regulate the temperature.

Main Stage
What is the best way to celebrate an anniversary? By going all the way! We won’t give away too many spoilers, but here are some facts of the project currently being developed by our team:

  • 8m tall, 9m deep, 20m wide (almost three times the size of the 2024 stage). 
  • 116 square meters of water basins, good for 15.000 liters of water. 
  • 132 square meters of LED wall

And so much more
