So for some reason various people have asked 'Who are you' and why are you Sad?
Well here is a bit of info to help satisfy those that have asked. I live in Worthing just along the coast from
Brighton on the South Coast of England (UK) and have done so for most of my life, I'm 46 years old, and have
attended 12  WGT's. I have been a Goth for most of my life. I have a passion for Music, Gigs and Dancing (and
I have quite a passion for Schwarzbier Beer of the Köstritzer type, other than that I love to drive and travel. In
normal life I work as a Senior Project Planning Manager.

You may find various spelling mistakes across this site together with grammer errors as I suffer from a mild
form of Dyslexia, there are words I can never spell correctly...if you care to point out my errors I will gladly
correct them, thanks.

Why am I Sad? Well many  years ago when I first created an email account I was kind of sad due to personal
problems, and the name sort of stuck...today some have said that i am sad for writing this website, although
other people may equally say that you are just as sad for reading it (maybe doubly so for getting this far,
hehe). Anyway enough about me I hope you found the answers to your questions about Wave Gotik Treffen
and Leipzig and I hope to see you in Leipzig (I will be the one dressed in black with the big boots!)

I have had a couple of people ask if they can donate to support the website and other activity that I complete to
be able to bring you the latest on WGT each year...so please find a button opposite that will take you to PayPal
and a payment screen via your Paypal or Debit / Credit Card...thank you in advance :)
In total I estimate that the site has cost about £1000 - £1200, that is yearly domain and monthly hosting costs
etc since the sites conception in 2006, although there is no accounting for the time it takes to create and
update...thank you once again

WHY THE WEBSITE?
I created this website to help first timers get to the worlds biggest and best Gothic Festival and to expand the knowledge of those that
have been to find some of the quieter less known corners of the festival. I suppose I found it rather daunting when I first went as there is
very little information in English on the Internet that can help you. If you have been before you will know what I mean, with the various
venues scattered around the city its very easy to miss whole sections of the festival.

In 2002 I finally got around to going to my first Wave Gotik Treffen (WGT), having previously only been to various UK based festivals. I
didn't know what to expect, except for the knowledge that there were 150 bands playing. I loved every minute of the festival, from the
shopping hall to the bands playing, from the multi-national make up of the crowd to the city and all that has to offer. I have been every
year since, and it really is the highlight of my year. I started a small Yahoo Group to help other English speaking Goths get to Leipzig,
and as the group has grown its become obvious that people want more information on how to get to Leipzig and what to expect when
they get there. I initially sat down and wrote a 20 page guide to WGT, however there was still more information to add. The Guide has
evolved to become this website. Feel free to email me, with suggested ideas, a review, or to join the yahoo group.

In 2010 I started a supporting Facebook page to make WGT announcements on...you can find it
here

I don’t profess to be an expert on the festival, nor do I have any connections with the organisers (although I am a moderator on the
official WGT website forum), the content of this website is purely my own opinion of what I have seen and experienced, although I hope
many of you will send me additional information. See you in Leipzig.
