Awaiting Dates for 2020
Antwerp Pride Nights 2020
After the huge succes of Antwerp’s Pride Night, the 2019 Edition will feature 3 nights of events, because Bigger is Better!
Pride Night brings together the biggest events and LGTB nightlife brands Antwerp has to offer, combined with international artists and deejays under one roof. Well, actually 3 roofs.
This year events take place not only in in De Shop and its neighboring smaller event spaces. 2 other venues haven been added to the program Cargo Club (better known as Red&Blue) and IKON (former Noxx club).
On Friday, Pride Night takes off with a very special edition of Rapido, by far the most popular gay event in the Netherlands. 2 times a year Red&Blue invites Rapido to the Diamond City, Antwerp Pride being one of both. For the first time however Rapido will take place on Friday in Cargo Club for the Official Pride Night Opening event.
On Saturday Pride Night will be spread over several venues:
De Shop, Bar Helder, Vaag and Ikon. These 4 venues will be hosting the creme the la creme of the Belgian LGTB events like Flash (Le You Tea Dance), Extravaganza, Les Apres Midis Croque Monsieur, Cafe de Love and for the very first time: H.I.M. All locations will be connected by our very own shuttle service.
For the Pride Night Closing Party on Sunday, we return to Red&Blue for a very special night hosted by Funky & Lumbago.
The gay bars and clubs in Antwerp are a little spread out; we have marked on the map where the gay village will be, which is where most of the major events will be held
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
Gay Map of Antwerp
Antwerp is small and compact having a beautifully preserved old town in the centre. Having said that bars and clubs (more than 30) are spread out around the city, so its best to find a hotel close to the centre and journey out to your preferred destination. The main club, Red & Blue is located in the harbour. Famous gay monthly parties Studio 54 and Café de Love attract guys from all over Europe so book your accommodation in advance.
