Wave Gotik Treffen in just two weeks!

2016-04-25 (Events)

25th anniversary of Wave-Gotik-Treffen: dark-romantic celebrations that take part every year at Whitsun in Leipzig - Germany. Twenty-four years ago, two Gothic people from Leipzig had an unusual idea: They didn’t want to create yet another dark music festival but rather a supra-regional gathering of like-minded fellows for relaxed meeting, chatting and celebrating. When the 1st Wave-Gotik-Treffen took place in 1992 at the edge of Leipzig with about 2,000 visitors and just a handful of bands, it was unlikely to imagine that within a few years the WGT would become the largest meeting of Gothic people in the world, taking possession of a whole city every year at Whitsun. Now, the WGT exists for a quarter-century…from May 13th to 16th again more than 20,000 Gothics from all over the world are expected to come together again in Leipzig to celebrate the jubilee of Wave-Gotik-Treffen as the international gathering of the dark family. To start this 25th WGT properly, there will be a grand opening party already on Thursday, May 12th, starting at 8.00 p.m. It will take place at AbenteuerReich Belantis - an amusement park in the south of Leipzig. DJs will be inviting to dance at various locations on the area, among them veterans of the early days of Leipzig’s dark scene like the founders of WGT, Michael Brunner and Sandro Standhaft as DJ-team Moonchild. All fairground rides of the large amusement park can be used until midnight.

Hexvessel in Poznań!
