Seeing as Germany is VG’s country of origin, imagine our delight reading the latest issue of The Fetishistas and finding an end-of-the-year wrap up of the lifestyle fetish events coming to Germany in 2018. As The Fetishistas points out, this past year we had the unusual circumstance of the Avantgardista and Passion debuts occurring within one week of one another. What usually happens in this kind of piggy-backing is that one of the events will suffer from low attendance, since attendees just do one not the other. It’s hard to tell exactly if either brands’ new events suffered this fate as this was the first year for both, but from all reports they were spectacularly attended.
Looking ahead then, from March to November of next year…
Fetish Evolution Weekend XV (this event, German Fetish Ball Weekend and BoundCon Munich are all celebrating their 15th year in 2018) happens March 29th-April 2nd 2018. FEW’s main spot is the Hotel Bredeney, in Essen, with its ball held at Delta (previously Mudia Art). More information can be found here: http://fetishevolution.com/en/
German Fetish Ball Weekend XV, happens in Berlin, May 9th to the 13th, 2018. Happening one week before Whitsun, these five days this year will not clash in anyway with BoundCon or Fetish Factory (as it has in the past). The events that make this weekend so special are as much the actual ball as the 2-day fair held over the weekend. See here: http://www.german-fetish-ball.com/
Boundcon XV happens later on in the same month, May 25th to 28th, 2018 to be exact. Centered around the activity at expo space Zenith Kulturhalle. Already Lew Rubens and Elise Graves, have been touted to appear. See here for more info: http://www.boundcon.com/
Jumping past the summer Avantgardista‘s Weekend happens in Munich come October 19th-21st 2018. This was SubRosaDictum’s brand new entry into fetish events, launched last year. The Leonardo Royal is the partnering hotel for this event. See here for more info: http://avantgardista.net/
Lastly Passion ends the year (at least with what’s listed so far for fetish events in Germany in 2018). To be held on November 16th-18th, at the MesseHalle Hamburg-Schnelsen, this is where the German Fetish Fair has also made home for the last two years. Go here for more info: https://passion-messe.com/
