Whitby Goth Weekend Dates for 2014

Cat on the Wall’s firm favourite in terms of annual music/subculture events has requested we announce to you all the 2014 dates for Whitby Gothic Weekend. 2014 is to be the 20th anniversary of the UK’s most eminent Goth festival and promises to be one of the finest years to the standards one would expect – and one of the largest in their twenty year history.

You may remember COTW visited Whitby in April 2013 for one night only, and found it a most impressive experience.

Whitby Goth Weekend is one of the most incredible things you shall ever see, whether as an outside or part of the legion of black that encompass the town. The people are friendly, open and never judgemental, happy to welcome you into their little family, introduce you to people and listen to you, learn about you – they are the sort who will make you feel like you fit in – you could be terrified of it all, standing there clueless, and people will stop and say hello.

If you get a chance to go – do so. You won’t regret it!
Whitby Goth Weekend 2014 Dates


25th-27th April 2014 – The April Event has a slightly higher chance of nicer weather. Slightly. It’s a nice ‘starter’ experience for the event and while not nearly as large still promises a wonderful couple of days.


Hallowe’en Weekend 2014 – this is the official 20th anniversary event and will likely be the one to look out for! It’s promised this is to be a BEST OF for Whitby Goth Weekend, containing, as a majority, acts that have previously appeared to particularly positive reception. This means it may be extended to a full four days of music.
