"We feel there is an ever growing crowd of people that consider themselves Goth," Jeffrey A. Swanson of Dark Star Records, which is co-promoting the event with SGL Entertainment. "And we feel that no one has ever put together an expo and festival of this magnitude geared toward this style here in the States. But this event is not limited to any elite Goth crowd. There are many different styles of music and exhibitors that are all connected in some way to the dark world of the Gothic subculture. And for those who are just looking for some extreme entertainment then this is an event you do not want to miss!"
Gothicfest 2005 will run from 11 a.m. to midnight. The show is all ages, 21 to drink with proper ID.
