Darklands is a multiday fetish festival in the city of Antwerp in Belgium. In a massive hangar on the edge of the city, the festival offers a large vendor market, masterclasses, shows and parties from Thursday 5 till Sunday 8 May 2022.

The daytime program offers various elections such as Mr Leather Belgium and the very first European Puppy & Handler contest. Among the shows there are the Worldfetish Show Contest by SLFC from Spain and Geartunes Live! from London and Manchester. This year we’ll also celebrate 50 years MSC Belgium and 25 years BLUF.
There are daily dinners and a great food selection at the festival.

From Thursday to Sunday parties take place each evening and special parties take place throughout the weekend. For the first time Darklands offers afterparties at Club Cargo, close to the Darklands venue. Here you can continue partying on Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning.

The fetish shops and bars in the city are looking forward to welcome you again. Fetish Café hosts two mixed parties on Friday and Saturday. The successful 'Classic Meets Fetish' concert takes place on Thursday with a new name: 'Beyond Classic’.

16 host hotels are filling up rapidly. Make sure to book them through the Darklands website and receive some great perks such as a goody bag and use of the free shuttle bus between your hotel and the parties on Friday and Saturday.

Your family is looking forward to welcome you home!
