Valentine’s Day is on a Friday. King’s Day is on a Monday (that means a 3 day weekend Dutchies). Christmas and New Years fall on Fridays which means PARTY! 2020 is already looking very promising in general, but we’ve put together our collection of the gayest, queerest inclusive parties, events and holidays across Europe. Mark your days off early and plan ahead for tickets because most of these events sell out fast! When you miss pre-sale, you know who’s always got your back.


Disco Total: January 10, Amsterdam 

Long-running disco party in the OT301 in Amsterdam, Diso Total is the beautiful baby of Maxime Duvall, spinning disco on vinyl in a funky hall with funky people. Fashun, hair and mid-tempo flair is what you’ll find at Disco Total. If tickets are sold out, check out TicketSwap.

Sweetie Darling: Opening Night: January 25

One our favorite DJs from Amsterdam, Darling Peter is launching his own little party at new venue, Lovelee, called Sweetie Darling. What can we expect? Well there will be a lot of beautiful hosts, including the world famous adult star, Francois Sagat. There’s a dresscode! The theme is Adam & Steve, so get ready to enter the garden of eden, henny, and dance! Get your tickets right here. If there are none less, you know where you can check! Don't wait though, opening night will surely sell out!

True Colors: January 26, Amsterdam 

Shaking off the New Year’s hangover (and screw all those ‘dry’ resolutions) True Colors takes place at the Paradiso in Amsterdam for the umpteenth time on January 26th. True Colors, a fundraiser for the COC (Dutch Organization for LGBTQ People) is an amazing opportunity for companies and organizations to share a special moment and recognize all the work that’s being done to make the world more LGBTQ accepting. Expect some inspiring speakers topped a good ole dance with the city’s top DJs spinning until midnight. Check the  program and tickets. If tickets are sold out, check if someone's got one for sale for you right here.

PANN Foundation parties January  18th and 31st, Utrecht 

Mostly aimed at Dutch LGBTQ+ youth, the PANN foundation organizes monthly parties in Utrechts' biggest venue TivoliVredenburg, on select Fridays every month! (With 25+ on selected Saturdays). PANN also brings their parties to Amsterdam, Leiden, Tilburg and Groningen 8 times a year. The atmosphere is pretty much an equal split between men and women and they're very hetero friendly, so gather up your gang and add this to your agenda.
