Circuit Festival, the world’s biggest international gay event, returns to Miami this Thanksgiving weekend. According to party producer Luis Morera, this year’s event will be the ultimate holiday destination for the LGBTQ party community, emphasizing love and unity.”
“We are thrilled to bring the world’s biggest international gay event back to Miami,” he says. “It’s gong to be a massive five night, four day spectacular.”
The gaiety begins Thanksgiving night with an over-the-top opening party at CAMEO. Then on Friday night, Circuit Festival takes over America’s #1 nightclub, SPACE, in downtown Miami. The weekend continues Saturday and Sunday inside the massive MAGIC CITY STUDIOS in the heart of Miami.
The list of talent for the weekend is incredible, with some of the heaviest hitters from the world’s biggest festivals, flying into Miami for the weekend events. They include Abel (Aguilera) Isaac Escalante, Taito Tikaro, Tom Stephan, GSP, Lydia Sanz, Ivan Gomez, Nacho Chapado, Ed Wood, and Rick Braile. DJs Phil Romano and Dan Slater will headline the weekend’s signature event, The La Leche Beach Party. It will be held on a new location on the sand with a top of the line sound and lighting system, an incredible stage with 20+ dancers, plus a secret, surprise, live performance.
Circuit Festival – also known as Circuit Festival Barcelona – is Europe’s largest gay festival. Since 2008, it has been held annually in Barcelona. Luis Morera, Billy Kemp and Hilton Wolman, the men behind the popular Miami party brand URGE, are the men responsible for bringing the event to the sun-drenched shores of South Beach. “The weather here is incomparable to any city in the USA, especially in November,” says Kemp.
They also see it as a way to give back to their community. Over the long weekend, they will drive tourists into local businesses by offering discounts on all sorts of merchandise from stores, restaurants, and gyms. “It’s a beautiful exchange,” explains Hilton Wolman, a longtime South Florida resident. “We want to make sure that Circuit Festival Miami is contributing directly to our beautiful city and that we are leaving a good and lasting impression.”
They’re even scheduling a beach clean-up so that they leave the sands as clean as they were before the weekend parties.
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.
This year’s host hotel is The DREAM on South Beach, part of the prestigious Dream Hotel Group. They are currently offering specially negotiated rates starting at just $146/night.
