Free open air concerts, different performing stages, parties, art, culture, sport... and all of them in the gay neighbourhood Chueca at the very centre of the city.
MADO'18 is the LGBTIQ Pride festival to be held in the neighbourhood of Chueca and the main streets of Madrid. A great festival to celebrate, discuss and show diversity, culminating in the Pride Parade!
Madrid is a city where tradition and modernity coexist in perfect harmony, which is why it is known around the world as the capital of charm and joyfulness. Our city is also recognised for being welcoming, friendly, open, peaceful and cosmopolitan. Visitors are captivated by its atmosphere, bustle and general exuberance, so, that anyone who spends some time in Madrid, finds it difficult to leave.
A specially designed location called "Pride Park" will be set to host vendors, LGBTIQ and human rights worldwide associations. Pride Park gives them the opportunity to connect with a large and diverse crowd from around the world. A community space open to everyone.
The International Conference of Human Rights at which prominent activists and experts in the fight for LGBTIQ equality and human rights from around the world will share experiences and develop specific proposals to support LGBTIQ rights everywhere.
At MADO'18 we will take culture out to the streets. Music, dance, theatre, poetry, fine arts, puppetry and others. We believe in a live, demonstrative, plural and free culture, a culture that fills the streets and squares of the city centre to allow residents and visitors to experience the freedom and diversity that Madrid has to offer.
