Circuit Festival – also known as Circuit Festival Barcelona – is Europe’s largest gay festival. Since 2008, it has been held annually in Barcelona. This Thanksgiving weekend, it debuts in Miami.
Beginning November 22nd through November 26th, thousands of men from around the globe will flock to the sun drenched shores of South Beach for Circuit Festival Miami. Producers chose Miami for its beaches, thriving nightlife and warm people. “The weather is incomparable to any city in the USA, especially in November,” says Billy Kemp, who is producing the massive four night, three day spectacular with Luis Morera and Hilton Wolman.
The weekend begins Thanksgiving night with a welcome cocktail reception on the rooftop of the Clevelander Hotel, followed by a colossal opening night extravaganza featuring the music of DJs Maikol Venek and Ana Paula.
On Friday, Matinee’s infamous Pervert Party storms into America’s #1 nightclub, Club Space, with music by DJs Lydia Sanz (from Spain) and Tom Stephan (UK).
The Pool party takes place on Saturday at the Clevelander Hotel and then its on to Saturday Night’s “Matinee Champions” event, an American Football-themed party, taking place at the mammoth 36,000 square foot Soho Studios with music by DJ-producers Isaac Escalante and Phil Romano.
On Sunday, its time to break out the Speedos for the La Leche Beach Party, Circuit Festival’s signature event. It takes places on the sands of Lummus Park at 11th Street from 1pm to 9pm sharp and will feature fun performances, some of the world’s hottest dancers — including many flying in from Spain — and beats by international DJs Taito Tikaro and Dan Slater.
Following the beach party is the weekend’s blow-out closing event at a completely re-imagined Soho Studios. Miami’s #1 party brand Urge will a produce a Thunderdome theme event with music by DJs Ivan Gomez (Spain) and Grammy Award Nominee Abel Aguilera.
Says Wolman, “We want everyone to know that Circuit Festival Miami will be fresh and exciting and it will help return Miami to its rightful place as the gay party capital of the USA.”
A portion of the proceeds from Circuit Festival Miami will benefit Miami Beach Pride, a not-for-profit organization that works to unite members of the LGBTQ community by celebrating the unique spirit and culture of its people.
Circuit Festival Miami takes place Thursday, November 22 through Sunday, November 26. The host hotel is the Clevelander Hotel (1020 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach). Visit CircuitFestival.net/Miami/ for hotel and ticket information.
