Every year, the streets of Leipzig are swarming with people dressed in black. All of a sudden, a black tram line starts operating, the shops in the city center start dressing their windows in black and the newspapers‘ headlines are all „Leipzig is black“. What’s going on? Wave Gotik Treffen is back in town!
WGT is the world’s largest goth festival and takes place each year over 4 days on Whitsuntide weekend. Approximately 20,000 goths and people of all dark styles meet in Leipzig and attend over 200 live concerts and cultural events. Sounds crazy? It is!
