For those of you who haven't heard of Velvet Ibiza - where have you been?!?
It launched onto the lesbian festival calendar 2 years ago and has been making one hell of a splash. In 2016 Naomi went along to see what all the fuss was about, and she was impressed!
- When: 27 April - 1 May 2017
- Where: Ibiza, Spain
- Who: LBQ women
So what makes Velvet Ibiza so special?
Well firstly the price is ALL INCLUSIVE - so your festival ticket includes airport transfers in Ibiza, entry to the festival, accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks AND all drinks until midnight!!! Seriously!
The festival consists of laying by the pool listening to top international DJs, yoga (watching or taking part - your choice) by the pool, football, speed dating (for those solo ladies to meet other women early on), live music and dance parties. The organiser Carine hires out the whole resort so it is a really cool safe space with just a load of lesbians, alcohol, music... sounds like a party to me!!!
Flights from the UK are super cheap - I just did a search on Expedia and you can travel from London to Ibiza from just £55 - a British Airways flight is just £105 (prices accurate as of 8am on 6 October).
In addition to the amazing price, the people were truly amazing. I've been to A LOT of lesbian festivals. This one made me feel so welcome. I went at a time when I needed to be happy, I'd had a lot going on personally over the previous 12 months and was hoping some sun would pick me up. I've never met a group of women so welcoming. Everyone wanted to make new friends. I met amazing women from all over the world, including: America, Belgium, Brussels, France, Sweden, Italy - plus Manchester, Sheffield and Brighton!!
