Wave-Gotik-Treffen 2021 – OpenAir and Online
There was at least some hope that I would be able to exhibit again, as the “Schwarzes Leipzig”- organizers asked me to take part in this year’s little event at the Moritzbastei. But as they are not yet allowed to open the interiors, that’s not going to happen. However, other small events will take place open-air style in Leipzig. Of course, it is not a good idea to have people come over from around the world right now; everything is kept small and follows strict rules. This will be for the locals mainly, for those fully vaccinated and tested.
The Wave-Gotik-Treffen itself cannot take place. The organizers had to cancel despite their efforts to find different solutions at the end of April, releasing the following statement:
Just a taste of WGT: Picknick and Moritzbastei
“Schwarzes Leipzig” at Moritzbastei: A small OpenAir beer garden on thursday from 5 pm and and Friday, Saturday, Sunday announced readings, live acts und resident DJs.
The following things are important:
* certified negative test (not older than 24 hours, except for twice vaccinated people whose last vaccination was more than 2 weeks ago)
* Mask compulsory wherever the distance rules cannot be applied
Where can I get tested?
You can test yourself with an appointment very quickly and easily at the train station,
in the Mädler Passage and in the Gewandhaus, among other places:
Beer garden and music at Torhaus Dölitz
At the Torhaus Dölitz, where usually the “Heidnisches Dorf” is taking place an event called “Pest-Treffen 2021” has been announced, referring to the plague obv.
It starts with a beer garden on Friday with dark romantic music, goes on at Saturday and Sunday and ends on Monday with another chill beer garden time.
Our stands open on Friday from 3 p.m. on all other Pentecost days from 12 p.m. See here for more Info.
Concerts at TankBar & Hellraiser
Similar to last year, the alternative bar at Jahnallee 52 will deliver some music, starting Friday with Ohrenpeyn and DJ Darkland
On Sunday at Hellraiser (Werkstättenstraße 4) these acts will be on stage: PAINBASTARD + UNTERSCHICHT + GIMME SHELTER. See here for more info. The number of visitors is limited, tests or vaccination required. Checking in your data at the entrance is necessary for tracking contacts (Corona App is okay).
Stay safe, watch a Livestream: World Goth Day, Gothic Pogo and Grauzone
Who, like me, is far too careful to indulge in these meetings just yet, might enjoy the World Goth Day Stream 2021 on Twitch on 22 May.
This year the event will go on for a complete day, featuring 48 half-hour DJ sets from 53 DJs or DJ couples from 24 countries – a truly international event to bring the local scenes together.
