When is the next edition of La Demence in Brussels?

Over the summer months, the La Demence team head off on a Mediterranean cruise awash with seamen, but they’ll be back on deck in Brussels for the next party – the date that you need in your diary is Friday 29 September.

Then, in October, things really crank up a gear with big plans for the Halloween weekend.

If you’re planning to go large for Halloween, you’ll need your stamina – 27-31 October are the dates – that’s four nights of partying.

See you on the dance-floor!

What makes La Demence one of the hottest nights out in Brussels?

“It is difficult for me to believe that my party is already over 30 years old – and that we’re still attracting new guests every time…” explains Thierry Coppens, the man behind La Demence. “I’m proud of La Demence – no other gay party has lasted as long.”

“What has never changed since the beginning – and it’s the key to our success – is the family feeling which makes everyone feel accepted…” continues Thierry. “There has always been a mixture of ages and styles – bears, muscle queens, twinks, leather boys, trans, fetish. It’s also a very international audience.”

“What has really changed since the beginning of the parties is that at that time no one used to take their shirts off, whereas now it has almost become a standard.”

“What keeps me going is when people tell me that they are having the time of their life and thank me for that.”
