Wave Gotik Treffen 2016

It's a time to do the first post of Wave Gotik Treffen. Needless to say the whole  event was again an experience which I want to re-see the next year. 

So we arrived at Leipzig on Thursday afternoon and the night spent by sleeping. There would have been interesting opening parties twenty kilometers away from the downtown, but the bed won at this time. On Friday, which was the first official day of WGT, we headed to Victorian picnic and that was one thing we wanted to experience this year. We missed it the year before due to the tight schedule. Fortunately the picnic was arranged on Friday when the weather was good.  A big park filled with beautiful people in wonderful costumes was definitely worth visiting. Some people do put effort on their costumes. 
I wore a striped dress and self made collar on Friday. And even the horns found a way to the head. 


We spent some hours at the park until it was a time to go Agra. I did some shopping and we watched the gigs of Peter Murphy, Faun and Nouvelle Fague. Peter Murphy was one artist I really waited for seeing this year, Faun was okay I hadn't listened to them before, that France cover band Nouvelle Fague was a bit peculiar. Some of their cover songs were interesting, but there were some songs that wasn't really goth... I don't know what I should think of them, but we watched the gig while waiting for Murphy to come. Peter Murphy played Bauhaus and his own songs. Both sounded good and I'm happy I had a chance to see this mystical goth god in live.
