Barcelona is at various times of the year the European capital of fashion, of mobile phones, of comics and of videogames. In August this privilege is reserved for the Circuit, the gay and lesbian festival par excellence.
In this, its fifth edition, it has again organised separate activities in a festival aimed at men (Circuit, August 2nd and 12th of August) and another aimed exclusively at women (Girlie Circuit, from August 7th to 13th). Both festivals have the same premise: desire to have a good time, meet new people from all over the world and dance until the sun comes up in countless parties, and to the beat of the most current house music.
The event that stands out most, which men and women do share, is the Water Park Day, which is held on Tuesday 7th in the parque acuático Isla Fantasía, in the nearby village of Vilassar de Mar. For an easy way to get to the venue, there is a bus service that leaves from Plaça Catalunya (in front of the Hard Rock Café).
Address: Circuit. Several venues in the city.
Opening hours: From August 2nd to 13th.
Parties: €20 – €50.
Ticket for the whole festival: €300. Check the complete activity and party programme on the website.
