A Goth enthusiast poses during the annual Wave-Gotik-Treffen music festival on June 6, 2014 in Leipzig, Germany.
The event began in the 1990s and has since grown into one of the biggest gatherings of the Goth scene in Europe with around 20,000 participants. Many of those attending wear elaborate outfits and makeup for which they require hours of painstaking preparation and that also show a departure from the traditional black of the Goth scene. Punk remains a strong influence in today's Goth style as witnessed in Leipzig, but newer trends, with names like Cybergoth and Steampunk, have emerged that blend bold colours, Victorian fashion elegance and 19th and 20th century factory accessories into a look reminiscent of a mutated Venetian carnival. The five-day festival includes performances by around 200 bands.
