The famous culture and music festival takes place every year in Leipzig since 1992. From May 18 to May 21, the annual world festival for “dark” music and arts will transform Leipzig into a black city. About 20.000 visitors from all over the world come to Leipzig for this gothic event.
All over the city, different concerts and events attract both visitors and locals from Leipzig. For more information, see the article about this year’s festival at Leipzig Glocal Blog and the official festival homepage.
A special recommendation: The Victorian Picnic on Friday, May 18, from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Clara-Zetkin Park is totally worth a visit as you will have the chance to see how people dress up in Victorian, steampunk, baroque or all kinds of neo/dark romantic styles.
