Lesbian Festivals – The Coolest in Europe

Are you looking for a cool festival to go wild at this summer? Are you in for romance or all night pool parties? Whether you want to meet someone or go crazy with your friends, it’s always better when you are with like-minded people. We made a list of amazing festivals that are held in Europe this summer! Are you ready for a fun vacation?  These are the best and biggest lesbian festivals in Europe! 

Festivals that are spread over several days, usually offer full packages. They offer a week or weekend, filled with parties and activities. Most of the time, they also arrange a hotel, campground or shared house. Europe counts quite a few of these festivals for women and they’re spread all over the continent. Some are swimming pool and sun-soaked party weekends, while others are more artsy or cultural.

The weekend promises loads of fun, whether you ski or not. The Swiss Alps are perfect for a variety of winter activities like mountain sports, wellness, and great food. You also have the option to attend a music festival, ice skating and go for idyllic walks in the surrounding area. There will also be a Summer Festival in 2018, so keep scrolling!
