HEAVEN Dragon Boat Festival
Join Shanghai’s hottest men at the HEAVEN Dragon Boat Festival gay dance festival, presented by ANGEL Shanghai’s creative team, featuring superstar guest DJ’s and some of the best-looking party crowds in Asia.
The Dragon Boat Festival is a national festival, but the LGBTQ community has adopted it as a sort of gay Valentine’s Day because one theory is that the hero behind the legend died not for his country but love for the king.
The Heaven Summer Dragon Boat Festival is the summer edition of the quarterly circuit parties hosted by Angel Events Shanghai mainly at Icon with house, tribal, techno and dance music.

Gay Map of Shanghai
The gay scene in Shanghai changes quickly, and there is no particular ‘gay district’. A few well-established gay venues can be found in the Old French Concession area – Shanghai’s richest and most vibrant neighborhoods.
The French Concession is west of the historic Old City and Bund areas, and south of the dynamic Jingan neighborhood. Most are along blocks either on or near the neighborhood’s main east-west drag, Huaihai Zhong Lu.
