Viva Music at Wave Gotik Treffen 2009


WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN (18th edition), the largest alternative festival in the world, took place between May 29 and June 01, 2009 in Leipzig, Germany. Check out the WGT Website for full details.

For many years the Treffen was celebrated as the largest gathering of the “dark family” in the world. All over the city more than 190 bands, projects and single artists performed on about 20 stages. The events took place for instance in the vaults of the Moritzbastei, in the splendid neoantique cupola hall of the Volkspalast, in the crypt of the Völkerschlachtdenkmal, a famous monument of the battle of 1813, as well as in large concert halls. The people from Leipzig are familiar with the Treffen after 17 years – the Gothic guests are welcome.
