Mykonos is liberal, magnanimous and open minded. In fact it has been so ever since the 1960’s. This is why Hollywood stars, royalty, celebrities, tycoons and A listers -even the famously reclusive, “sad” princess Soraya- come here to get lost ιn the maze like streets; to flirt, drink and socialize unperturbed; to party like there is no tomorrow ; to “feel free” again, in other words.
For anything that happens in Mykonos, stays in Mykonos; and it is its distinctively bohemian, daring character that acts as a magnet to everyone who’s up for a good time.
It is only logical then, that one of the biggest, feel good, clubbing events οn the planet takes place in Mykonos.
Every year over 30,000 people from all over the globe, bounded by love and the universal language of music, flock to the island of winds for eight glorious days full of fun, sun, luxury, glamour, festivities and a measure of abandon. This is what XLSIOR, one of the most exclusive international Gay Festivals in the world, is all about: Old friends, new friends and loved ones; Astonishing music, breathtaking venues, an amazing international Dj line up, the hottest crowd, some of the world’s best artists, loads of beautiful faces and the hugest smiles; In effect a complete holiday experience that will blow your mind.
The XLSIOR Festival is held during the summer peak season, this year between the 23th to the 30th of August, so if you want to partake in all this bacchanalian extravaganza make sure you plan on time.
Bear in mind that the XLSIOR party schedule is pretty intense, so it’s a good idea to set aside a few days to get yourself settled and then have sufficient time to relax before heading back home to reality. The town of Mykonos has definitely got enough to keep you busy, but this might be somewhat overwhelming. So you might want to consider choosing some lodgings which are close to the action, yet safely removed from the whole buzz and hubbub. You’ll definitely want to keep up your strength, after all!
