Wave-Gotik-Treffen

Music in Leipzig

On Whitsuntide (mid- to late May or early to mid-June), a black tide descends on Leipzig for the Wave-Gotik-Treffen, the world's largest goth festival, with a pagan village, a medieval market and lots of dark music. This is a fun time to visit the city, though you might feel a bit out of place without a black bridal veil.
