MAIN VENUES - OVERVIEW
Wave Gotik Treffen is a unique festival as it takes place in approx 50+ locations around the city of Leipzig. The venues are scattered right across the city from the very large main Agra Messepark venue South of the City Centre to the Industrial Estate venues in the East and the scattering of smaller venues around the City Centre. NOTE: The festival evolves each year, many of the minor venues will / will not be used, check the official WGT program / itinerary for exact details.
