World Goth Day 2018

May 22

World Goth Day originated in the UK in 2009. BBC Radio 6 was looking at a number of music subcultures. Goth DJs Cruel Britannia and Martin OldGoth got an event up and running.

The tradition continued and spread outside the UK, with a website being initiated to coordinate and advertise events worldwide.

World Goth Day celebrates the sub cultural aspects of the Goth subculture. Aspects of the culture like fashion, music and art are celebrated by fashion shows, art exhibitions and music performance. Many of the events feature local Goth bands, and some have taken on a charity aspect with events in the UK and Australia supporting favoured charities like the UK Sophie Lancaster Foundation, a charity that tries to curb prejudice and hatred against subcultures.

The event has evolved to be now celebrated by goths all around the world, including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Macendonia and South Africa.
