Performances by international DJs, artists, bands and dancers will be enjoyed by up to 35,000 people, across 4 stages, all over the city of Porto.

For 72 hours, attendees will enjoy non-stop fun and celebration that will continue from the main venue to the vibrating nightlife of the city, pulsating through themed afterparties at various local clubs and boat parties that will literally dock at the venue. They will have tailored experiences, such as pool parties with astonishing views and helicopter rides over the ocean. All of this with a sense of pride and appreciation for the LGBT+ culture.

The Apollon Group have organized this festival to celebrate the music, the art and, most importantly, the people that allow the LGBT+ community to flourish. The festival environment in its entirety will be a safe space for all those who believe that identity and sexuality have multitudes of expression. To ensure attendees can celebrate to their fullest extent, the Apollon Group have partnered with the Portuguese Secretary of State for Tourism and the municipality of Porto, as well a vast selection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and hotels in the city of Porto, allowing for a unique and inclusive experience.

Ahead of the festival, attendees can enjoy some swag from t-shirts to totes, all available at lgbtmusicfestival.com.
