In 1998, the National Institutes of Health held a consensus panel to examine the issue of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Although trials combining drugs and behavioral modalities are under way, conclusive recommendations concerning treatment for the long term cannot be made easily."(1)

Close to 25,000 people attend the festival annually to hear gothic, metal and industrial music performed on two large festival-style stages.
