You already know Circuit Festival in Barcelona, Miami Winter Party or XLSIOR Festival in Mykonos. Soon you will also know GCircuit Songkran in Bangkok! The biggest gay festival in south-east Asia will be held April 12- 14 for its seventh edition. Organized during the Thai New Year celebrations (Songkran), this festival is the opportunity to bring the Asian gay community together but also to attract more and more gays tourists.
More than 10,000 people joined the party last year during the three days of festivities. Created in 2007, the GCircuit attracts a growing international gay public, seeking to discover Thailand, its openness and its traditions. As for example this Songkran tradition of splashing each other with water ! During the GCircuit, get ready to get wet!
International DJs such as Micky Friedman (Germany), Isaac Escalante (Mexico), Danny Verde (Italy) or Brazilian superstar Ana Paula will play during the 5 big parties, each with evocative names such as Exotica, Galactica, Fantastica…. But since it’s Songkran, the funniest parties will be the WET ones, where you'd better not be afraid to get wet. There are two WET parties: a classical one « Boys on top » will be held at the Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel’s swimming pool, and a bears party is planned on Sofitel So Bangkok’s 29th floor.
Nearly twenty hotels offer packages for the festival, among which the most trendy ones of the Thai capital city : W Bangkok, So Bangkok, Novotel Bangkok or the Muse. Even the W Koh-Samui offer to host the attendees who would like to recover in the enchanting atmosphere of the island!
So if you forecast to spend some time in Bangkok or in Thailand next April, don’t miss GCircuit! The festival participates to affirm the reputation of a clearly open-minded and gay-welcoming Thailand
