Darklands Daytime Festival

Darklands is the world’s only indoor gay fetish festival. It offers a safe haven for adventurous gay men who are looking to expand their sexual horizons. Your entry ticket (€20 pre-sale) is valid for all three days of Darklands! There are no extra charges for show or the Demo Zone.

Ask for our special Leather & Fetish Pride voucherbooklet on your Sunday visit. Selected vendors in the market will give you a discount on Sunday on presentation.

As well as offering a place to meet other visitors or catch-up with new friends, Darklands features free fetish demonstrations and workshops, the fetish market, and a great line-up of shows, porn actors, DJs, and performers. A selection of bars and food options are available.

Sign-language interpretation at Darklands

Most of the program on the Darklands main stage will be supported by sign-language interpreters. Our aim is to make the shows more accessible for the hard of hearing & deaf people. Please email info@leatherpride.be for more information and details of which parts of the programme will be signed.

The interpreters are possible thanks to the kind support of Red & Blue Antwerp. We’d like to pass on our utmost gratitude to them for this incredible gesture.

Bondage workshop

I’m The Puppeteer a bondage specialist. At Darklands I will show my rope skills with some shows, and demonstrations, where I will bind, gag, whip and fuck my slaves up for you all to see. You can learn how to fuck-up your slave with rope bondage in a safe way. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at Darklands. (Various hours, see program)
