The biggest concerts, shows and events from all over the world. The calendar of the most beautiful and renowned parties, and the most absurd and incredible.
DATA: 28 June - 08 July 2018
PLACE: Madrid, Spain
Also this summer, the Madrid sky is tinged with the colors of the rainbow with one of the most important LGTB events in the world.
Eleven days of unbridled fun with lots of events, concerts and performances in the center of Madrid. The heart of the event will be Chueca, a very central district of Madrid, extremely tolerant.
The World Pride Madrid opens its doors to all visitors. Not only to the LGTB community (lesbian, gay, trans and bisexual), but also to those who are simply curious.
Around here, they talk about LGTB pride. And indeed, the World Pride Madrid festival, despite its excesses, is a hymn to life, peace, tolerance and respect. Freedom of expression. Against prejudices. Against hatred and abuse.
These are the values we should always draw from.
These are the values that we at Kanoa love
The program is, as usual, rather dense. Live music and free concerts. Feast, art and culture. Sport. And, also, events in the event, like the We Pride Festival: 7 party unleashed from morning to night.
The most anticipated moment will, of course, be the big parade of the 7 July.
By plane, Madrid can easily be reached from all over the world. Barajas International Airport is well connected by direct flight to major European and non-European destinations. Furthermore, from the airport you can reach the city center by public transport, quite easily. More info from here.
Alternatively, you can opt for the car or the train to get to your destination.

Over the course of the eleven days, the streets of Chueca, and of the center, will be invaded by the atmosphere of the World Pride Madrid.
At Plaza de Chueca, Plaza de Colon, Plaza de Espana and Puerta de Alcala, just to name a few, there are performances, shows and free concerts. And, lots of activities.
The many outdoor bars will offer live music.
A WorldPride Park, in Puente del Rey, will also be set up; an informative space and cultural exchange, open to anyone.
The 28 June, at 20: 00 around, inauguration of the World Pride Madrid 2018 with the Rainbow Night.
Obviously, the highlight will be the grand final parade, Saturday 07 July. As usual, the parade will take you through the most emblematic streets of Madrid: Paseo del Prado, the Alcalá Gate, Piazza Colón.
To better enjoy the event, Chueca is the ideal neighborhood to find accommodation. A true catalyst for the World Pride Madrid, it is the most open and tolerant neighborhood in the city. Ideal for your nightlife.
