WE Party is overrated
“WE party is overrated, over priced and poorly organised. I visited Madrid for World Pride, I was looking forward to WE party after seeing all the promotion but I was very disappointed. Many of the venue were very far from the city and it took over and hour to reach most. The queues were very long and we waited in line for 2 hours even with express tickets. The staff were rude and refused to let many of us on the bus back to the city for no reason. Massive let down and a badly organised.“

Queues, bad organisation, no refund
“Well let's just say, this organization markets themselves as WeParty Pride Festival Madrid and have advertised themselves with many videos, some of us had very high expectations and were expecting a world class event... Needless to say, on the contrary. The bus service and security staff were so aggressive and some of the patrons and were delayed by 3 hours… So much for a gay friendly organization with violence? I saw a young man being pushed around and bullied by the security on the Sunday night at entrance of WeParty Fabrik, it was terrible. You go to these places to be proudly gay and end up being a victim of hostile behaviour and arrogance. Unsafe me thinks.
Many foreigners who travelled across from the globe were expecting these events to take place in Madrid, this too, was a lie. The venues were 40km outside of Madrid, resulting in taxi fares of 120 Euros, because the bus service was delayed by 3 hours and some of us were rejected.
You finally get there, you wait in 30 min queue to get inside, then you have to wait in another queue for 50 mins just to buy tickets for drinks, then you have to wait in another queue to finally buy your drinks. You spent the whole night waiting in queues instead of partying??
The venue was an outdoor venue, which was windy and freezing cold, 11 degrees, a lot of people were unhappy. It was truly shocking.
Following this, I immediately expressed my dissatisfaction online, and someone from the WeParty team contacted and apologized for the incident, where I was turned away and rejected a BUS ride, even though I paid for a VIP Priority Boarding Bus Pass and promised to action a refund.
These promises were made at the beginning of July, a couple of weeks later, I continued to express my dissatisfaction with this organization and got a very arrogant response from them. It’s now September 2017, the incident took place in June 2017 and the organizers of WeParty have still failed to refund me, which they promised and confirmed.
In total between me and my friends accumulated on all pass tickets and vip tickets, we wasted over 2000 euros on the most pathetic experience ever with WeParty.
Guys, all I can say is, avoid this organization. I went to Circuit Barcelona two weeks ago and it is WAY WAY WAY better and perfectly organized with friendly bus service and security. Matinee Group have been doing this for years… and I love the fact that they pay attention to their clients.“
