Whitby Goth Weekend Live Music & Concerts

whitby_goth_weekend


The Whitby Goth Weekend (WGW) is one of the UK's longest running premier alternative music festivals with live music, markets and more!

Whitby Goth Weekend is estimated to produce a whopping £1.1million for the town's local economy per annum, and has generated thousands for charities such as the Bat Conservation trust and the RNLI.

The event is celebrated as an icon of the alternative movement, having been studied, visited and explored by television, newspapers and radio over the years, and has, despite all this, remained utterly independent throughout its run. Growing voraciously from its origins as a forty-person pen-pal meet up in 1994, it now attracts thousands from all over the globe, not only to wander among like minded folk, but as a colossal meet up between friends - all from word of mouth, with no sponsorship and no outside funding.

After two decades, the team is still built of friends and family, all in house, and the town now handles between 8,000 and 10,000 people a year, drawn entirely by the spectacle of top hats and tailcoats roaming the town's Victorian streets.

Diversifying every annum, the event attracts all manner of subcultures, with a melting pot of the alternative population now making regular appearances and meetings to the sounds of a hugely varied series of groups, all of which, in some way, have influenced, or been generated from, one of the world's most recognisable movements - Goths, punks, steampunks, Rockers, Bikers and more - everybody is welcomed!

Tickets are available now, starting at £18, with concessions for under 16s and families.
