Get a vibe from the atmosphere with a clip from the last Maspalomas Pride in 2023.

The epicenter of the celebrations is at Yumbo, located in the heart of Playa del Inglés, a neighborhood of the super gay beach town Maspalomas. For those who don’t know yet, the Yumbo is the only gay party center in the world. It has tons of gay bars, shops, restaurants and more, dedicated to the community. It´s running 365 days per year, but during Pride it just gets super duper packed in every corner of it.

In the middle of the Yumbo you will find a huge outdoor dancefloor with a big stage where you will dance, enjoy live performances, shows and parties. We are calling that the Main Stage. Next to it, when you feel like changing music vibes, there is the alternative dancefloor: the 6 Pack Zone.

And then everywhere in the Yumbo you will find the many bars where they also play different kind of music inside and where you can enjoy good drinks, dance and meet new people.

As you will see, many things are happening at the same time. The best way to experience this gigantic event is to try bit of everything and pick something to do different each day.

🏝️ Note to Paradisers: Bookmark this page as we are updating it with the latest updates. And come back to it during your stay for Maspalomas Pride, each day, to know what´s on the program that day. And send it to the friends who are coming with you. Also use hashtag #maspalomaspride #maspalomaspride2024 in your social media posts. Thank you!

☀ IN THE DAYTIME ☀

Enjoy Gran Canaria Island’s best weather in the world, sunbath on the gay beach and Dunas of Maspalomas and check in to one of the boat parties with open bar, they are amazing, especially even more during Pride.

You can also visit the island with other gays, and check some of the pool parties.

Eat well, there are good places on about every corner, but the best of the best we tried and approved are here.

And don´t forget to try to get some rest !

 

★ AT NIGHT ★

Every night, for almost 2 weeks, it´s a massive event all across Yumbo. Everyone will make a passage to the Main Stage, the 6 Pack Zone and all of the bars.

1. THE MAIN STAGE

The Main Stage is in the middle of Yumbo on the ground floor. The live show starts every night at 21:00 (9pm) with performances by singers and drag queens. Expect also fashion shows by underwear brands and super duper sexy model guys, talent shows and more. It is hosted bilingually in English and Spanish.

At midnight, every night, this area transforms into a huge circuit music outdoor dancefloor (Dancefloor 1). The parties are co-organised with other big Circuit parties from all over the world and their famous deejays, as well as gogo dancers. We are totally looking forward to the Guapo party with Mario Beckman on May 9th, the Gibus party on May 6th, Andy O´ Kean from La Démence and Rashad Miraz from Matinée Group/Barcelona Circuit Festival on May 12th amongst others.

STARTS: at 21:00 (9 PM) for part 1 and MIDNIGHT for part 2.

2. THE 6 PACK ZONE

@alexis..oficial #maspalomas #yumbo #🏳️‍🌈 #paratigay ♬ This is heaven – Nightshade

Right next to the Main Stage is the 6 Pack zone, the Dancefloor 2 also famous on TikTok haha ! (see above). Enjoy House, Funk, Disco and Pop music. It is a partnership between 6 bars Junior, Parrots, Peppermint, Cafe Latino & Gio and Adonis. Together, they had the wonderful idea to join forces and make one whole section of Yumbo another outdoor dancefloor with a common deejay.

It happens during every big events (New Year, Maspalomas International Carnaval in March, Fetish Pride in October, WinterPride in November and of course Maspalomas Pride in May). It is a great way to alternate back and forth with the circuit music from the main stage or if you prefer dancing than watching singers before midnight.

 

STARTS: at 21:00 (9 pm) until late.

3. THE YUMBO BARS

All of the bars in Yumbo have each their own vibe with their own music and type of crowd. Wander around and see what feels more like “you”. We highly recommend the video bar Mykonos if you like pop and latino music. Tom´s Bar, the charismatic Tom of Finland venue with its red lights for the daddies, uncles and bears types of all kinds. For unexpensive and good cocktail go to Tiki Bar’s happy hour from 20:30 to 22:30 for 5,50 Euros cocktails. The rich and fabulous head over to Secret Garden. The Cruise Terrace if you are already kind of horny but want to still stay outside. Fans of Eurovision, there´s the bar for you: Wunderbar, definitely gather there with your flag during this year´s Eurovision semi-finals and final, it´s happening at the same time as Maspalomas Pride so the both combined will be fun. French-speaking bogosses, rendez-vous au Mixx and dans les French bars (but if you speak French, you should be reading the French version of the program here). German gutaussehende männer, to the German bars. And our Dutch gezellig aantrekkelijk heren to Macho Macho.

If you want to do karaoke, go to Kelly´s Karaoke, the bar next to Sparkles on your way up towards Mykonos.

Tip: cheaper beers at Divinity which is right behind the Main Stage´s dancefloor. You get 2 for the price of one. A great way to buy drinks to your friends haha. ;)

STARTS: All day & Night (Each bar have their own schedule).

4. THE DRAG QUEENS´ SHOWS

For those who like drag queens: there are none other than 4 drag queen bars! Where UK Drag Race Season 1 winner The Vivienne started: Sparkles (British and Irish humour, plus performances), Funny Boys (mostly divas performances such as Whitney Houston and the kinds), Terry Show (Spanish music lypsyncs. local vibe), and the former home of Michael Marouli: Rickys Cabaret (British hosting).

STARTS: Ricky starts at 7pm, Sparkles at 10-11pm and Funny Boys: Midnight)

5. THE CRUISING BARS

The cruising bars will also be very crowded. Inside Yumbo, the largest is Strong Construction, which by the way is a puppy meeting point.

STARTS: 21:00 (9 PM) until 6 am.

6. THE YUMBO NIGHTCLUBS

Clubbing in discotheques starts late…like around 3 am. There is Mantrix which recently opened a bigger section, and then there is Kiki which has taken over the Scala Heaven location and will be trying its first pride there. Freedom Asociacion is not having their parties there anymore nor having any parties after the main stage finishes.

Clubbing in discotheques, starts around 3 am. There is Mantrix which recently opened a bigger section and Scala Heaven which is now Kiki. Guys head over there when the Main Stage area is over.

STARTS: 3 am until 6-7 am

7. THE AFTER PARTY

When everything close at 6-7am, there is… the after party ! More info about this click here.

STARTS: every day starting at 6am and ongoing.

8. THE CHILLS

Chills are of course happening, you might be invited to one in person, or you can start your own. Or you can just ask us where they are. For that you must follow us on Instagram @paradisrrr , Like minimum 5 posts, tag us in at least one of your Pride posts and send us a DM. Write in your first message ¨chills now please”. Knowing how to read is fundamental, information will be given ONLY to those who have followed these instructions, and only on the day there are happening.  PS: those who organize chills, let us know as well, we are coordinating.

STARTS: All night and day…

When the music is over on the main stage, head over to the 6 Pack Zone. And when the 6 Pack ends, you can go to Coco Loco if you want to continue dancing for free and pick up someone to your hotel.
