General Festival Information

Darklands is a multi-day indoor event with a daytime festival as main event and several parties at night at the same location. It combines education, entertainment, shopping and parties throughout 4 inspiring days. The daytime festival and the parties follow up to each other so you can stay on the festival grounds.

The festival offers an extraordinary selection for fetish retailers at the gear market.

The festival and its program target gay men in general, but you are more than welcome to bring your girlfriend along to the daytime festival.
