Dark Malta 2024 [Gianpula/Malta]

19.-21.04.2024

Dark Malta. From 19-21 April 2024, Malta will once again host a gothic festival for connoisseurs and enthusiasts. The three-day event, which is now taking place for the 5th time, can be described as small but mighty. Bands and audience could not be more international. From the underground to the high-calibre of the music scene, everything is represented here. And what could be nicer than combining a (short) holiday with a deep black festival on such a wonderful island? From our own experience, we can say that it can happen that you suddenly find yourself on the same plane as your favourite band. Our tip: book your flight and accommodation early. Highly recommended!

Burning Pants Festival 2024 [Hude/Oldenburg]

05.-07.07.2024

The Burning Pants Festival - which claims to be the only rock festival for the fetish, BDSM and sex-positive scene - will be opening its doors for the fourth time from 5 to 7 July. Let the jogging trousers burn - is the motto. This means that it's all about combining dark-coloured rock music with an informal atmosphere. True to the motto: everything can, nothing has to, except for sensational live acts such as Megaherz, Mono Inc, Kärbholz, D'Artagnan, Sündenklang, Schattenmann, and many more.... 
The venue is the HS Lifestyle Club in Hude (near Oldenburg). Let the jogging trousers burn!
