Maspalomas Summer Fiesta

Bored of the same old holiday? Then head to Gran Canaria for this brand new gayfest!


Bored of the same old holiday? Wish there was something a little more fresh and vibrant? Fed up of the British summer weather?

Well summer is definitely happening in Gran Canaria. In Fact in August it’s peak time with blue skies every day and golden sandy beaches complete with warm water lapping at your toes. Who wouldn’t want to spend time in brilliant sunshine and enjoy a holiday with a twist?

‘What´s the twist’, we hear you cry? A visit to Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, for the inauguration of the new Maspalomas Summer Fiesta (29 August - 1 September). Imagine an eclectic mix of music, sunshine, an international crowd, gogo dancers, parties, boat cruises … need we say more? This is the beginning of a major development in Gran Canaria’s clubbing scene.

This new four-day weekender, might be described as an 18-30 Club style holiday, but it’s so much more than that. It will appeal to all age groups, given its programme of daytime and nighttime activities, but if you prefer something more relaxing then just come and chill and spend the entire week here soaking up the rays, giving you a tan to show off on your return home.

Maspalomas is world famous for its LGBT Scene, with the Yumbo Centre sitting merrily in the heart of the south of the island. This mecca of gay tourism has everything the LGBT tourist needs; comedy drag bars, lounge bars, discos, fantastic restaurants alongside men-only bars complete with darkrooms and cruising areas…it’s all here! It’s even better as we’re going to build an entire festival around it!

So, this festival! There’s an event each night based around the Club Lounge Bar, KISS FM. There’s also a Glow Party, a Mister & Miss KISS FM Maspalomas Competition, traditional club sets, international DJs, after-parties and even before-parties! There’s the chance to win everything from a selection of swimwear to a holiday. There’s even a comedy talent night, just in case you can’t manage four hard nights in a row! (Come on, we are sure you can party four nights in a row!!)

During the day there’s a massive pirate ship boat cruise, pool parties, a beach fiesta along with games and activities. Late afternoon bar crawls will get you into the party spirit for the evenings. You won’t need to pack much – just your trunks, clubbing gear, glow stuff, flip flops and a toothbrush.

The concept is simple! Why fork out for an expensive break in the Mediterranean with expensive clubs, food etc? As Gran Canaria is a tourist hotspot all year round it can afford to keep the prices real! Most clubs are free and the night time events are free as well! Cheap flights, cheap accommodation and cheap drinks combined with sunshine can’t be beaten.

You wont regret a late break to the sun, before dreary September kicks in!
