Description

Welcome Message

Hallo friends of darkness!

Like every year on Whitsun, the next Wave Gotik Treffen Festival (the 20th!) will take place in Leipzig (Germany) on June 10th - June 13th, 2011. Treffen is 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 19 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

Important Information

Since March 1st, 2011 about 60% of the urban area of Leipzig has been declared a «low emission zone» to protect the environment from air pollution. Therefore within this zone only vehicles which have an official green sticker placed on the front windscreen are allowed. To obtain such a sticker, the vehicle must meet certain standards (i.e. age, type of fuel, diesel particulate filter etc.). This regulation is also valid for foreigners who travel to Leipzig by car. If you cannot show a valid sticker during a traffic check, you will have to pay a fine of 40 euros.

The stickers are available for about 5 euros at most car repair shops in Germany or via internet, e.g. the website of TÜV-Nord (6 euros)
 ATTENTION: The agra-area with parking lot and camping site can be reached via A38 / B2 without having to enter the «low emission zone»! (Please see the map of the zone below) That means it is possible for visitors to park their vehicle at the agra-parking lot (you will need a WGT parking ticket in this case, which can also be obtained on location) and reach all other locations by public transport.

Please use the following links to find more information:
