"Only once a year the beach is black ..." is the mysterious announcement on the website of the new festival format PLAGE NOIRE that will take place at the Ferien- und Freizeitpark Weissenhäuser Strand. It will definitely attract the black scene to the Baltic Sea. In 2009, the festival had already taken place there; now it returns in an elaborately staged new edition.
PLAGE NOIRE (en. “black beach") takes its visitors into a world of its own, which revolves around an ancient legend. A mysterious woman haunts the Weissenhäuser Beach since her beloved went missing after a caper ride. Once a year she is spotted there whenever the beach turns black. In addition to the unusual dramaturgical orientation, the PLAGE NOIRE is also special for other reasons: More than 25 concerts on three stages lead international stage giants to the Baltic Sea. The audience is accommodated in comfortable apartments or hotel rooms, and in addition to the music, festival guests can also enjoy and discover other facets of the black scene, e.g. fashion and styling. All events are tailored to the target group and take place indoors. The holiday park, which has been elaborately designed, will turn into a world of its own for a weekend; it will surely be remembered even after the festival.
The Ferien- und Freizeitpark Weissenhäuser Strand has firmly established itself as a festival location in the last ten years, and has already hosted two very successful indoor festivals from FKP Scorpio: the Rolling Stone Beach and the METAL HAMMER Paradise. Both festivals are sold out far in advance. Now, a third festival format will be added to this successful line up, the third edition of the Gothic festival PLAGE NOIRE.
