More than 7,000 people enjoyed the La Rioja LGTBIQ+ culture festival over the weekend. Morrete Fest, organized by GYLDA, packed the Revellín parking lot on Friday and Saturday nights. The festival is consolidated by also attracting a large audience to the family event on Sunday.

The Rioja social entity GYLDA LGTBI+ is very satisfied with the great success of the public achieved by the Morrete Fest, which they organized this weekend. Thus, on Friday more than 2,700 people enjoyed the performances of Lapili, 2Mari DJs, Futurachicapop, Bárbara Reina de la Pantaloneta, Lusillón and Venga, Bea.

He On Saturday, even more capacity was gathered and around 3,300 people packed the paid parking space at the Revellín during the performances of María Escarmiento, Chico Blanco, trashi, Lil Ella and Nina Emocional.

Already the Sunday, the Morrete Family Camp proposal with a multitude of Riojan groups from the city’s musical creativity schools, Fundación La Rioja Big Band Piccolo and Saxo, and Amadeus Aula Creativa, delighted the hundreds of people in attendance. They were also able to enjoy the inflatables and workshops on badges, face painting, henna, textile creativity or CD reuse, as well as popcorn or a popular rice dish.


For Fran Alonso, cultural coordinator of Gylda LGTBI+, “without a doubt, this second edition has exceeded all our expectations and believe us when we say that seeing the Revellín and surrounding areas full of people during these three days has been something brutal for all the people who for months have been working on this project.”

From Gylda LGTBI+ they have stressed on social networks that “We want Morrete Fest to be another sign of identity of our territory, an essential date for all citizens, an appointment with the music that is made by the collective and where we meet again every year. “We want to create a community that embraces the diversity and attracts visitors who want to be part of this. “We want more Morrete Fest and we want to do it with you!” they say.

Furthermore, Morrete Fest is much more than the volunteers who make up our Gylda LGTBI+ association. In these last three years, a network of collaborating entities has been created that contribute their experience and professionalism and without whom this would be impossible.

Rioja Acoge, Plena Inclusion, Asprodema, Proyecto Purpurina de Arpa Autismo, the batucada K-boom Percusión and Bárbara Reina de la Pantaloneta have also participated in the Family Camp.

In addition, Red Cross Youth and Red Cross La Rioja have participated, Fac26 in the production, Pámpano Eventos in the hospitality industry, Eroico Producciones in the audiovisual section, Kiko Ausejo portraying the best moments and many other essential people between volunteers and the technical team.

“If the success of 2023 led us to launch ourselves into this 2024 edition; given the new leap achieved, we already have our eyes set on the 2025 edition that we will begin to outline as soon as the set of cultural and leisure activities of La Rioja Pride ends. “, they point out from the Gylda LGTBI+ Culture and Leisure group, that they do not rule out holding a new party at the beginning of the next San Mateos.

“We are in a position to affirm that Logroño wants festivals and leisure with diversity and in a safe environment, as many people attending the festival have let us know. We take it as a compliment and recognition but at the same time it also makes us reflect on whether Today’s leisure is sufficiently safe and respectful of all people,” they say.

This year the initiative has been sponsored by institutions such as the Government of La Rioja and the City Council of Logroño, companies such as Agua Mineral Natural Peñaclara and Caja Rural de Aragón, as well as the SMEs, La Taberna de Baco, El Bar Tirador and Ribera Laurel, as well as with the collaboration of Quack!, Logroño Limpio and the Logroño City Council Services Park.
