Ibiza unveils new Gay Pride festival
Ibiza is aiming to roll back the years and regain its title as the number one gay holiday destination in the world.
Plans have been announced for Ibiza Gay Pride 2015 for five days between July 8th and 12th when organisers expect more than 50,000 people of 50 different nationalities.
Organisers say it is time for the gay community to start making Ibiza their number one choice again following a decline in the LGTB market over the last decade.
The dates have been chosen to follow on from Gay Pride in Madrid where details of the new event were unveiled during a major travel fair.
In its heyday, Ibiza was famed as a mecca for gays with partying around the clock.
The 2015 festival will include a Gay Pride march on July 11th and will be centred around Eivissa although hotel beds are already being allocated all over the island.
Acts have yet to be confirmed but top DJs are expected and there will be parties, exhibitions and leisure activities. All the major nightclubs will be taking part.
Ibiza council says it is delighted to support LGTB tourism as well as attracting more people to the island for nature, gastronomy, sailing, health and art.
