Darklands, formerly known as Leather & Fetish Pride Belgium, will take place from 4 to 9 March 2020 in Antwerp. The organisation announced the dates.
Organiser Jeroen Van Lievenoogen stated LeatherPride Belgium some ten years ago. But that name didn’t do justice to the variety of kinks, fetishes and communities present.
So the festival became Leather & Fetish Pride Belgium. “But you can’t add parts to the name forever”, Jeroen told Be Out. “Darklands is a strong brand known all over the world.”
Darklands 2020 is being designed as a theme park. “The theme park once was the cultural highlight of Antwerp, but it has been abandoned for years. Now, an obscure and mysterious new owner transformed it into a place where boots shine, rubber is polished and the smell of leather fills the air. Are you ready for the dark ride of your life?”
Darklands has deals with ten hotels in Antwerp. Seven of which already accept bookings.
- Tryp by Windham
- Astoria Hotel
- Hampton by Hilton Central Station
- Premier Suites
- Leopold Hotel
- Hotel Indigo Antwerp City Center
- Lindner Hotel
Ibis Budget, B&B Hotel and De Keyser Hotel will follow shortly.
