We appreciate that fetish guys have day jobs and holiday leave is precious, but this is one event worth taking some holidays (or sick days!) for. Walking out of the office late on the Friday afternoon with your suitcase is fine. But even if you only have a quick flight or train trip, by the time you arrive you will have missed more than 24-hours of a four-day event. That’s a quarter of the fun gone!Around half the visitors arrive on the Thursday, so you won’t be alone. In 2020, Darklands will open on the Thursday night for the first time. First up will be the all-new superstar Gay Fetish Cabaret – a definite must-see. There will also be a new party to open the weekend – Mayhem!Across town on the same night is the legendary Classic Meets Fetish. Both events will sell out so The Boots will probably still be busy! In 2019, the venue hosted the opening night. Three-quarters of those who turned up had to be turned away as this vast labyrinth was completely full.
