This is the calendar of upcoming events The Blogging Goth will be attending, or strongly recommends you attend!
I’m available as an experienced public speaker on goth culture, history and music. Please visit my Contact page for more information.
Infest 2019: 23rd – 25th August 2019, Bradford, UK
The premier EBM/Industrial/Electro/Etc. festival in the UK, if not Europe. The line-up in particular remains a significant level of jaw-dropping talent. The organizers have been kind enough to grant me access for my often incoherent reviews previously – sadly, I can’t attend this year, so go and tell me all about it afterwards… over the sound of my seething jealousy.
Black Rose Ball: Cabaret Macabre
6th – 8th September, York, UK
A professionally organized and beautifully designed festival in the wonderful town of York, Black Rose Ball is a high-point of the UK goth calendar. Last year was a superb continuum of live music, market shopping, ballroom decadence and graveyard-based exploration. I will be present for as much as possible this year!
Goth City: PAX GOTHICA, 11th – 19th October 2019, Leeds, UK
A vibrant and rambunctious celebration of the scene, in our spiritual home of Leeds, West Yorkshire. Helmed and heralded by the ubiquitous Joel Heyes, Goth City festival is now into its fourth energetic, charity-supporting year. Boasting a crammed schedule of music, performances, clubbing and socialising, I’ll be there to see this sprawling, scintillating event once again!
Boasting a lineup of classic talent and exciting newcomers, Tomorrow’s Ghosts Festival continues to be an exciting addition to the live music entertainment in the stalwart festival town. April was an absolute blast and a sell-out show so I’m holding high hopes for the post-Halloween season!
On a monthly basis, I help host NOIRCASTLE – a request-friendly club night with two alternating DJs spinning the finest goth, alternative, EBM, 80s and industrial music, as well as regular live gigs featuring the best local, national and international bands in a dedicated venue.
