The famous culture and music festival takes place every year in Leipzig since 1992. From June 2nd to June 5th, 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. As the Leipzig Glocal describes it: ” There’s a lot of black, but there’s also a lot of color” as many people in black as well as in colourful costumes dress up for the festival.

All over the city, different concerts and events attract both visitors and locals from Leipzig. For more information, see the Guide to Wave-Gotik-Treffen at the Leipzig Glocal Blog and the official festival homepage.

A special recommendation: The Victorian Picnic on Friday, June 2, 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.
