Darklands 2022

Darklands 2022
Darklands is the biggest fetish festival in Europe, mainly aimed at male audiences. The trade fair is backed by workshops of all kinds, various competitions and extravagant parties. The last edition took place from 4 to 8 May in Antwerp.

Called Leather Pride at its beginnings before becoming Fetish Pride then, more recently, Darklands, the event has opened up to all forms of fetishism over time. Since 2020, particular attention has been paid to emerging communities (and minorities), in particular Sneakers & Sportswear lovers. While this could not be the case this year, #BEsneax hopes to be able to collaborate again for the next edition in the organization of specific activities for our community.

Gear market

Mr Sneakers Belgium took advantage of Darklands to meet the sponsors of #BEsneax and thank them for their support. The following partners were present at the gear market: Mr. Riegillio, Master Of The House, AASSSOXX & Spit It Out.

Mr Superhero Fetish 2022

Several contests (or elections) were on the program for the weekend. This is how Mr Superhero Fetish 2022 was elected jointly by the audience and a jury of personalities, including Mr Sneakers Belgium.

Note also that, among the other competitions organized in Antwerp, Pup Thaly was elected European Puppy 2022. Last March, when he was wearing the German national sash, he had agreed to sit in the jury for the election of Mr Sneakers Belgium to Brussels.

Meeting people

This weekend in Antwerp was above all the opportunity to meet many boys who shared the same desires, kinks, fantasies… They came from Belgium of course, but also from all over Europe and sometimes from other corners of the world.

See you in early 2023 for the next edition. After the marine world, the space theme inspired by Star Wars and Star Trek was chosen for the decoration.
