For the 23rd consecutive year, the biggest worldwide music -and not only- gothic festival took place in Leipzig and managed to gather about The visitors painted once more the city black and had the chance to attend the medieval market, many parties at the wonderful Moritzbastei, Agra and celebrate the scene with many different kinds of music from goth, EBM, industrial to future pop, industrial and noise. Leipzig and its citizens gave a big and warm welcome for once more to all us black dressed and weird creatures! It must have been one of the hottest WGT we visited, not only because it was a fantastic festival this year too, but because it was extremely hot with 35 degrees temperature or more in Leipzig! The weather helped the visitors who wanted to camp at the Agra festival campsite with the Obsorgekarte.

Wave Gotik Treffen 2014 Setlists
Posted by La Carmina on April 21, A trip to WGT is at the top of many Goth bucket lists. I still think back fondly to my experience in If you missed it, you can look back at my Wave Gotik Treffen posts and travel video.
The festival also features multiple all-night dance club parties, several fairs with medieval, gothic, and related merchandise, a variety of cultural exhibitions and performances, large themed picnics, and a number of unofficial fringe events. With 18,  to 20,  regular attendants, the WGT is one of the largest events of the gothic , cybergoth , steampunk , and rivethead subcultures worldwide. A first attempt at a Treffen was made in in Potsdam. However, as the laws of the German Democratic Republic made this kind of event illegal,  only a few hundred visitors attended. In , after the re-unification of Germany , the first official Wave-Gotik-Treffen was held in the Eiskeller club now Conne Island   in Leipzig.
