Summer Darkness market Gothic shoot

Hello all, I have contacted the summer darkness festival and they advised that Saturday afternoon will be the best time to visit, with the most on. They will have fashion shows, and bands on in the Dom square.

What I propose is to meet up in Utrecht train station at 2pm in front of the large screen that has all the train times in the station hall. As there are a lot of people signed up, and from my experience some people sign up to these things without any intention of ever going, I'll wait until 2:15pm and then head off to the Dom. You can also head there and give me a call if you want to come later or miss a train etc.

My mobile is[masked]

I'll be traveling from Leiden, and will be catching the 13:22 train which gets to Utrecht at 14:04.

Hopefully it's sweltering temperatures, always fun to see Goths in full leather outfits in 30 degree heat.

There is an additional steampunk fashion show at Leeuwenberghkerk Servaasbolwerk 1A at 17:30, but it's a ticketed show. Euro 7.50...I'm not sure if I'll go to this part. I'll see how I feel. There will be plenty on in Dom Square anyway.

IF anyone is interested in going to the additional steampunk fashion show, the link is below.

Afterwards, if anyone is keen, we can check out a bar or two.

See you Saturday. If you know you aren't going to come, please RSVP off the meetup.

Cheers Matt

    There is a lot of rain coming this morning, but looks to clear around 1pm so should be fine.

    This will be my first time to an event like this. Those who have been there earlier, please suggest what kind of gear is suggested to carry along? And any precautions to take?

    • Mattymorris

      I would bring a plastic bag or something to protect your camera if it rains.

    Hi Matt,
    I was thinking about going. On the website I saw that a day ticket costs 35 euros. Do we need to get a ticket or are there areas where we can just go without needing to buy a ticket?
    Greetings,
    Esther

    • Mattymorris

      What I'm suggesting is free. There are tickets you can buy, but they are for the music venues close by. There are some free bands on in the square as well.
