The festival based at Hildesheim has grown substantially since it's recent beginnings in 2000 and is now a fixture on the European festival landscape. The biggest European wave and gothic festival attracts every year about 25.000 fans to celebrate a melancholic-dark weekend.
A fashionable outfit with a touch of middle-age in combination with lacquer and leather is as popular as black colour or if necessary white. The most fans show themselves in the same individual and artificial way like the artists on stage.
A lot of the famous bands and artists of the wave and gothic scene are mostly not for the first time at the M'ERA LUNA FESTIVAL. A new album release is not absolutely necessary for an appereance at this festival. The audience often wishes their good known idols to whom they feel close to but they also wait in suspense for unknown newcomers.
