Following the successful events in Thailand and on the Pacific island of New Caledonia, the Maltese archipelago – top in the ILGA Europe Rainbow Index – was selected for the first TropOut Festival in Europe.

From 13th to 19th September 2018, TropOut will offer its guests all the beauty of Malta: from its fascinating history and vibrant nightlife to Valletta, the European Capital of Culture 2018. From cultural day trips, yoga classes on a roof terrace to glittering parties at the hippest places on the island. The TropOut Boat Party is one of the highlights of the festival. You can spend the whole day partying in a relaxed atmosphere, surrounded by turquoise blue sea and the coast of Malta in the background.

Aaron Zoanetti, Director of TropOut, was happy about Malta as a venue: “We are so happy that TropOut is coming to Malta for its first European edition. The island offers everything one can wish for: great beaches, fascinating history and culture, glamorous party locations and delicious regional cuisine. But what impressed us most was the openness of the Maltese. Our guests are warmly welcomed and can just be themselves here.”

Malta took first place in the ILGA Europe Rainbow Index in 2017 for the second year in a row. The ranking is based on the human rights criteria granted to the LGBT community per country.

Malta offers a unique combination of tradition and culture, coupled with a modern and open attitude to gay tourism. Malta is an ideal TropOut Festival Location.

TropOut can be booked at the following website, including accommodation, festival pass and transfers

About Malta:

Malta consists of three main islands – Malta, Gozo and Comino. The archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean is known for its beautiful landscape, its culture and its more than 7,000 year-old history. More than 300 days of sun a year make the islands an attractive holiday destination. Malta can easily be reached in just over two hours from all major German airports – by e.g. Air Malta, Lufthansa or Ryanair.
