Lisbon Hot Season – The Gay Circuit Festival of Portugal!

Lisbon’s biggest gay and lesbian festival gets underway each year in the heat of July. With bigger and better events, international star DJs, incredible live-acts and top-notch animation, HOT SEASON FESTIVAL will bring the best European parties to Lisbon.

The organisers of the festival are the people behind Trumps, the main gay disco of Portugal. Explains Marco Mercier, Director General of the Trumps, “the great European destinations such as Madrid, Barcelona, Mykonos, London or Paris, already have their own festivals. It is only right that Lisbon should have a festival of this nature! ”

About half of the expected audience is international, since the festival coincides with peak tourist season in Lisbon.

We have found hotels with good reviews that keep you close to all the action,

Lisboa Carmo,   SANA Lisboa,   HF Fenix Garden,   The Late Birds.

Recommended Hotels in Lisbon

Lisbon is quite a compact city with two distinct gay districts,Principe Real area and in the old Bairro Alto quarter. Barrio Alto tends to lean more towards the mixed, gay-friendly groups. Principe Real hosts the best bear and cruising bars. We have selected hotels within easy walking distance from both areas. Remember, Lisbon is a city of hills, so sometimes a taxi is the best option!
