Lesbian and Gay Festival

Lesbisch-Schwules Stadtfest Berlin

The Lesbian and Gay Festival in Berlin is Europe's largest street festival of its kind. It takes place around Nollendorfplatz, the traditional gay stomping ground in Schöneberg.

Europe's largest Lesbian and Gay Festival (German: Lesbisch-Schwules Stadtfest) will take place for the 29th time in 2023. More than 350,000 visitors are expected. On both days of the festival, the area around Nollendorfplatz will become a party mile until late at night.

Program of the Lesbian and Gay Festival

Festival visitors can look forward to a live entertainment program on six main stages, featuring various German and international bands and DJs of all genres. Information booths and market stalls as well as a wide range of foods and drinks invite visitors to stay a while and enjoy the party atmosphere. An annual highlight is the talk show «Das rote wilde Sofa» where local politicians and celebrities are interviewed in front of a live audience of festivalgoers.

Celebrating Love, Coexistence and Community

The Lesbian and Gay Festival offers its visitors a wide range of information and sales booths, a variety of gastronomic scene businesses with cozy beer gardens, cocktail and champagne bars and a varied culinary offer. All interested parties are invited to celebrate together and take a stand against discrimination and racism - for an equal coexistence and togetherness beyond the community.
