Announced today, and delayed over the past two years due to the pandemic, Gothic Pogo Festival XV Festival is a go for this June in Leipzig, Germany. It’s my favourite festival ever and I’m to be performing a SOFT RIOT set on the Sunday showcase as part of five days of amazing bands, DJing and dancing. It’s a unique place that brings in people from all around the world, especially in these dark and crazy times.

The festival takes place at the fantastic Werk 2 venue in the Connewitz part of the city and runs from Thursday, June 2nd and runs well into the night of Monday, June 6th.

Pre-sale starts 31st March 2022. 5-day-ticket = 50,00 EUR plus presale fees. More info about tickets at soon. In the meantime, there’s more information on the social medias here.

After two years close to a standstill, it’s finally time to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Gothic Pogo Festival in a proper way. Two years we have waited to come together again. Two years we have been preparing to fill the space for the worldwide Gothic Pogo family. Now, as it is time, we open the gates of Werk2 for a full five festival days in the old tradition on Whitsun Thursday.

On four days we present you live bands and on five days DJ*s and crews, traveling from many corners of the world to be together with you at one time in one place.

The Gothic Pogo Festival offers what it stands for – a symbiosis of Deathrock, Postpunk, ElectroPunk and Wave, surrounded by lovingly decorated rooms and a chill outdoor area and laced together by a clear political statement:
We want to be a safe space for you!

From the scene, with the scene – for the scene!
