Taking place on August 10/11 is M’era Luna, one of the most important, if not the most important festival of goth, metal and industrial music. It is held annually on the second weekend of every August, in Hildesheim, Germany at the Flugplatz Hildesheim-Drispenstedt, a former British Army airbase. M’era Luna includes camping facilities and has two stages: a large rock festival style structure, erected for the show each year, and a former aircrafthangar. With its 20,000-25,000 regular attendants, the M’era Luna is one of the largest Gothic music festivals in Germany.
Our photoeditor, Vivi Ball will be there to report live on Facebook and cover the festival. Expect the review with photos no later than Aug 20.

Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
