I've just returned from the 2006 incarnation of Wave-Gotik-Treffen, the worlds largest festival on all styles of dark music.
I was very happy with the music, and in fact discovered a number of very interesting projects, such as Dark Sanctuary, Protagonist, Maschinenkrieger KR52 vs. Disraptor, S.K.E.T., and last but not least Omnia.
The weather though was an embarrassment. We had something like six degrees centigrade during the night at the camp site, definitely much colder than anybody would expect from June in Germany. Seems like the climate changes really become visible :((
As many of you will be asking: Did you take pictures? No, I was forbidden to. It seems this year they were only allowing non-SLR cameras for people who are not accredited press. This usually only was the case at concert stages, but now they extended this to all of the festival area. Since I don't own any non-SLR (either chemical or digital), I didn't take pictures. Need to check whether I can get accredited next year (*sigh*).
