Xlsior – The perfect way to end the Summer!
Xlsior Mykonos is the most exclusive International Summer Gay Festival, launched in Sept. 2009 on the famous island of Mykonos. Mykonos has renewed its image since the launch of XLSIOR and welcomes now all kind of circuit boys and holidaymakers thanks to a well-designed program, great artists of the gay scene, breathtaking open-air venues, a friendly and enjoyable holiday environment and guys coming from the four corners of the world to have fun.
This four day festival packed 8 massive parties into just 5 days. Starting on Wednesday afternoon at the Elysium hotel in Mykonos town, a hotel perched on the top of one of Mykonos’ many hills, the opening party had an amazing view out over the entire town. With a strong international dimension, XLSIOR welcomes 30,000 Gay travelers from all over the world.
Many of the venues, such as Cavo Paradiso, which hosted two parties were fantastic to party in. Filled to the brim with hot guys, and perched right on the cliff face overlooking Paradise bay, dancing by the sea.
One thing that sets Xlsior apart from other Circuit party festivals is it’s great beachside locations; such as dancing directly on the beach at Elia beach, Mykonos’ newest gay beach, to partying overlooking the entire town at Elysium hotel, finishing off with an incredible fireworks display at the main party on Sunday night at Cavo Paradiso.
The party schedule is pretty intense, it’s a good idea to have a few days either side to get yourself situated and have a few days to relax before going back to work. The town of Mykonos has definitely got enough to see to keep you busy.
All the gay bars are within easy walking distance from each other, but some can be hard to find as they are in narrow sided streets, the map give you an idea where everything is, but it’s hard to be accurate as there are no addresses in Mykonos as we know them, we have found hotels in the centre of town as that is where the bars seem to be, we have picked hotels that have a good rating Elysium Hotel,Hotel Geranium, Fresh Boutique Hotel, Orpheas Rooms, Portobello Boutique Hotel, Poseidon Hotel Suites
