Goth City Festival is a city-wide musical and cultural festival in Leeds that celebrates the gothic and post-punk heritage of the city and of Yorkshire generally. Events include, gigs, clubs, discussions, spoken word, acoustic and social events at venues across the city and featuring more than 20 different bands and performers.


In keeping with the DIY and underground spirit of the event, the festival is held at the best alternative venues across the city, including the cooperatively owned Wharf Chambers and renowned underground Leeds' venues such as Boom. All proceeds from the festival are donated to PAFRAS (Positive Action For Refugees and Asylum Seekers), a local charity for destitute refugees and asylum seekers. The inaugural Goth City Festival took place between in 2016, and it has since raised over £12,000 for the charity. This year's festival takes place on 7th-10th October, before it moves to a summer schedule from 2022."
