Beginning November 28th, Circuit Festival returns to Miami to celebrate U.S. Thanksgiving weekend as thousands of gay men from all over the world descend upon the city to soak in the sun and frolic on the shores of South Beach. Produced by Luis Morena, Billy Kemp, and Hilton Wolman – the team behind Miami’s URGE brand -Circuit Festival Miami promises to be a massive event – a five night, four day spectacle that boasts three daytime events and a Steay Beach Party on the Sands of South Beach.
The festivities begin in earnest on Thanksgiving night with CAMEO hosting the opening party. On Friday, the party moves over to the country’s top nightclub, SPACE, located in downtown Miami. Over the weekend, Magic City Studios in the heart of Miami acts as home of the event. The lineup for this year’s festival is as incredible as ever, featuring some of the biggest names in the circuit party world. Performers on deck include Abel (Aguilera) Isaac Escalante, Taito Tikaro, Tom Stephan, GSP, Lydia Sanz, Ivan Gomez, Nacho Chapado, Ed Wood, Rick Braile and more.
Of course, no Miami event is complete without an unforgettable beach event and this year’s La Leche Beach Party promises to be the festival’s biggest yet, with a new location on the beach, a premiere line sound and lighting system, a stage of more than 20+ dancers, and music sets by DJs Phil Romano and Dan Slater. Also announced is a live performance by a surprise guest!
Also known as Circuit Festival Barcelona, Circuit Festival is one of the biggest gay festivals in Europe, and is held yearly in Barcelona. This year the event is being promoted as the premiere holiday destination for the LGBTQ party community, emphasizing love and unity.
Circuit Festival Miami is more than just a circuit party featuring performers and world-class DJs; it is also simultaneously supporting the local economy of Miami and generating revenue for local businesses via discounts on merchandise from stores, restaurants, and fitness centers. The exchange contributes directly to the heart of the city and leaves an indelible impression that can be felt for months. To that end, Circuit Festival Miami is scheduling a beach clean-up after the festivities in an effort to leave the beaches in pristine conditions.
As the faces behind URGE, Wolman, Morera, and Kemp have produced festivals all over the world, but they all agree that there is no place quite like Miami for partying. Not only does it have some of the best revelers, but the weather cannot be beat, especially during the month of November. The producers have also announced that proceeds from Circuit Festival Miami will benefit Miami Beach Pride, a non-profit organization that helps to unite members of the LGBTQ community through celebration of the culture and inimitable spirit.
The host hotel this year for the festivities is The Dream on South Beach, a member of the esteemed Dream Hotel Group. To get the latest information on Circuit Festival Miami and to purchase tickets, check out the website.
