Goths around the world


It's hard to say how big and where the gothic scene has gone nowadays. I've been looking for a number online but couldn't find anything. There's no "sign if you are goth homepage" or an official world wide club to join. There are only vague things that can make your guess :


--> In year 1999 there were 50.000 visitors at the biggest goth festival in Germany (the Gotik Wave Treffen)

--> The magazines "Zillo" and "Gothic" sell more than 250.000 magazines around the world.

The scene is international with centers of gravity in western nations and Japan.
The differences in the countries are mainly influenced by the local music and fashion trends but also the the already existing cultural and religious traditions affect the arrangement of the culture. These trends do change fast though. In some places the infrastructure only keeps up via internet over regions and countries. (virtual infrastructures)

But there's no border gothic can break. There is no soul it can't touch! :)
