The largest gothic festival on planet

Wave Gotik Treffen - Leipzig, Germany

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 newspapersβ€˜ headlines are all β€žLeipzig is blackβ€œ. 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!
