The M'era Luna is a festival of goth, metal and industrial music. It is held annually on the second weekend of every August, in Hildesheim, Germany at Flugplatz Hildesheim-Drispenstedt, a former British Army airbase.

The 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 aircraft hangar. There have been some complaints about the acoustics in the hangar venue.[1] It also features DJ sets on Friday and Saturday evening.

With its 20,000-25,000 regular attendants (21,000 in 2005, 23,000 in 2009, 24,000 in 2010)[2] (many flying in via the Hanover airport, with others traveling via road and railway), the M'era Luna is one of the biggest dark music events in Germany.
