The event was created in 2004, about a year after we founded the first Czech gothic portal/webzine Sanctuary.cz. The concept of the world’s largest gothic gathering Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig (hence the name) totally fascinated us, and we wanted to bring at least a piece of it to Prague. Over time, the PGT began to develop its own face and attract not only visitors from the Czech Republic, but also increasingly from abroad.

The current form of the PGT is always based on two parallel stages (Guitar and Electro stage) in two different clubs, between which visitors can stroll, meet and mingle. Among the festival’s guests were e.g. Clan of Xymox, Kite, Das Ich, Covenant, Ash Code, Then Comes Silence, Rein, Actors, Empathy Test, Black Nail Cabaret, Frank The Baptist and many others. But even though the line-up is important, the “meeting” (German: “Treffen”) is the main thing PGT wants to provide for its visitors. It’s a space where you can get to know people from all corners of Europe. The traditional Saturday Gothic picnic is an ideal opportunity for this, to meet new friends and enjoy the second night of the PGT to the full with them.

All this creates an unique atmosphere of togetherness of the dark subculture that makes Prague Gothic Treffen what it is - the most sought-after gothic gathering in Central Europe. It’s your space. Your home in the dark heart of Europe. We bid you welcome…

PGT Rules

Rules of the Prague Gothic Treffen

All visitors to the Prague Gothic Treffen agree to abide by the following conditions, ensuring safety and a smooth running of the event.

  1. Visitors 13 years old and older are welcome at the Prague Gothic Treffen; participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who assumes responsibility for them.
  2. There is a strict ban on bringing weapons, pyrotechnics and other dangerous objects at all clubs and gothic picnics. There is no place for such things at our events. Likewise, you are not allowed to bring your alcohol or drugs into the clubs.
  3. At Prague Gothic Treffen we do not tolerate any hateful expressions of racism, homophobia, xenophobia, transphobia, use of extremist symbols, political propaganda of any kind, etc. Violation of this important rule will result in immediate expulsion from Prague Gothic Treffen without refund and a ban from further Sanctuary.cz events.
  4. The same applies to cases of harassment of other PGT visitors, violent behaviour or other actions against the peaceful course of the event and the laws of the Czech Republic. This will also result in immediate expulsion from the Prague Gothic Treffen without refund and a ban from our other events.
  5. Entry to the event is only possible with a valid and undamaged wristband, which you will receive at the entrance to Fuchs2 club in exchange for your ticket. The wristband is non-transferable.
  6. The purchase of tickets for further resale is prohibited.
  7. For personal use, you can take photos with your mobile phone and non-professional cameras. If you tag us after publishing your photos we’d appreciate it. If you want to bring a “big” camera (camera with a detachable lens, etc.), email us at least two weeks before the event at redakce@sanctuary.cz for a possible exemption.
  8. Participants agree to the free use of their likeness in PGT photos, especially for use in the official gallery and media of the Prague Gothic Treffen. These photos will not be used for any commercial purpose they serve purely for archive/memory preservation and presentation of the event.

Prague Gothic Treffen Rules (media)

  • Thank you for your interest in and support of PGT! You can apply for accreditation at redakce@sanctuary.cz by Friday, 23 August 2024. We will not be able to process later requests.
  • It will definitely help if you write us a few words about your media (visits/copies/reach) and (ideally) links to already published PGT-supporting articles.
  • To qualify for the accreditation, it is necessary for the applicant to provide at least “minimal support for the event”. It means publishing a press release at least one week before the Prague Gothic Treffen (i.e. by Friday, 23 August 2024). If you fail to meet even this basic condition, we cannot grant you accreditation. We are interested in building long-term and mutual relationships that we all value all the more. Of course, we will be more than happy for any additional space you can give the PGT. The more, the better, thank you :)!
  • The decision to grant/reject an application is solely on the organizer, and we will inform the applicant of our decision as soon as possible.
  • Journalists with accreditations also agree to abide by the same event rules as visitors.
