Additional info from http://www.shout.ru/en/events/details/117-21th-wave-gotik-treffen-festival-2012-leipzig-germany.html:

"Like every year on Whitsun, the next Wave Gotik Treffen Festival (the 21st!) will take place in Leipzig (Germany) on May 25th - May 28th, 2012. Treffen is the biggest gathering of the «dark family» worldwide! It'll cover the whole wide range of «dark music»: from electro-pop to goth-metal, from EBM to neo-folk, from medieval music to industrial.

All over the city it will be a lot of bands, projects and single artists, performing on many stages. Their well-known names will be proudly announced a bit later. However, from its beginning the Wave Gotik Treffen has been much more than a music festival: our guest will find a medieval market place and a pagan village, we will have authors reading, performing arts and films. One of the big halls on Agra-fairground (the wide place of the German agricultural fair) will turn into the biggest Gothic-warehouse of the world for four days.

On this fairground there is also the Treffen-campingground. With the special ticket you need for this (we call it «Obsorgekarte») you can also use the public-city-transport for free – so you can reach all Treffen-locations without extra costs. The inhabitants of Leipzig are familiar with the Treffen already 21 years. You will be welcome here!

The most fascinating thing during the Wave Gotik Treffen is the unique atmosphere. Gothics from all over the world are celebrating their gathering peacefully and with relish. Once a year about twenty thousand goths are coming home - to the Wave Gotik Treffen.

We would be happy to welcome you in Leipzig, too. Visit the Treffen – your friends from all over the world are already there!

See you!

The Treffen-Team"


Nothing came up in this forum's search for the WGT and I am assuming that most people probably won't be able to make it to this event, but is anyone going?

I threw a link up on ye 'ole Facebook and Twitter. Maybe someone local is heading over there.

It would be a great time, but I think this ugly thing called a career that keeps me here.

@Colleena: yes, I'm going. Sure, send me your e-mail address and maybe we can connect. We get to Leipzig on Friday afternoon (5/25).

@skywayman: tickets for the festival are about $100 per person for all four days (includes public transportation in the Leipzig area during the festival). You can also get the "Obsorgekarte" to camp in a designated area of the festival grounds. A hotel room will be close to impossible to find at this point, but they do get some cancellations the week before the festival. Expect to pay $100 and upwards per night - although there are some hostels that are cheaper (but fill up months in advance).

Other expenses include meals during the festival, public transportation to and from Leipzig, and shopping on the fair grounds (they have a huuge building full of Goth and related merchandise)....
