ago Leatherpride started as an experiment, today it is a hobby that has run
out of control. In recent years we have invested heavily in the quality of
this event. Visitors who come to Antwerp should simply have a wonderful
weekend. We do not intend to be the biggest – but we do want to be the best.
We are will continue to work on the quality of the event and deliver an even
better customer experience.
Fetish ExpressThis year our tour buses will travel to LeatherPride from Berlin, Paris and Lille at a very low cost. Return fares are just €95 from Berlin, €65 from Paris and €25 from Lille. Lille is an ideal connection point for visitors coming via the Eurostar from London.
The Fetish Express coaches are very comfortable and there is no maximum baggage allowance. That’s handy if you want to bring your leather, rubber and other fetish gear. There is free coffee onboard and can also purchase snacks.
Host Hotels Include the HiltonFor the first time we present three host hotels. We added another hotel because the two official hotels have been fully booked in previous years. The price of the cheapest rooms available has come down compared to last years.
This year we are pleased to welcome a great new partner: Hilton. Hilton has a long tradition with Chicago’s annual Mr Leather International Event which usually takes place at the Hyatt or Hilton.
Second Edition of DarklandsThe Darklands festival will run on both the Saturday and Sunday of Leatherpride. As well as a fetish market with various vendors, different fetish demonstrations and workshops, there will be opportunities to snack and drink with friends. Highlights include:
Perverts Party Comes from BerlinPerverts has been an iconic party for years on the Berlin fetish scene. Now the concept is coming to Antwerp. Visitors will have the same great experience, though with the Antwerp touch.
Rage is the New Main PartyFor the fifth edition of LeatherPride we thought it was time that the event, which has now quietly grown-up, had a right to its own unique main party. That is Rage. There will be a number of brand new toys in the darkroom, a stage and dance floor. But the atmosphere will nothing like you have ever seen at a fetish party with large projections, LED walls, fire jets, colour lasers, you name it. All the ingredients are there to make the party pop.
Madness PassEvents do not need to be expensive and we prove that in Antwerp. For example, a single ticket for the main party costs €20 presale. For those who want to party all weekend, there is the Madness pass. For €50 you can party on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and visit Darklands on both days. That’s a saving of 37.5% on the individual door prices for these events. And for that you also get that ‘Belgian quality’ we are so proud of.
