Milkshake: for all who love
Only in its third edition, Milkshake has already gained local favour for its daring approach to breaking conventional stereotypes related to appearance, weight, sexuality and race.
Winning the Golden Gnome for "Best One-Day Festival" in 2012, the event doesn't rely on big-name DJs or gimmicks.
Rather, the festival thrives because of the attendees and the atmosphere they create.
With a tag-line "for boys who love girls who love girls who love boys who love boys," visitors are encouraged to express their identities through dress, dance and music.
Explore the system of tents, one of the many stages and join in by expressing yourself during this liberal celebration!

Milkshake stages & artists 2014
The 2014 edition of Milkshake will see 10 stages with various themes and numerous artists.
Some of the names are established DJs, while others up-and-coming or quite niche. Such a mix reflects the diversity of the visitors who come to enjoy each other's company as much as the DJs.
Highlights include the Down The Drain Stage by Erwin Olaf, where Pacha legend Bob Sinclair will be headlining. Others include the Paradiso Pop Queer(s) Stage featuring residents and regulars from the 'F*cking Pop Queers' parties.
