Berlin Festival 2011 at Tempelhof Airport and Club X-Berg

Berlin Festival with Public Enemy, Boy Gorge and Boys Noize

On the 9th-10th of August, the Berlin Festival will once again take place at the old Tempelhof Airport. The Tempelhof Airport is an awesome location, with the main terminal providing shelter in case of a rainy day. However, we should stay positive! With such a stellar lineup, the Berlin Festival once agin gets a top position in the field of Indie Electro festivals in Europe. They still manage to keep a good mix between Hipster Indie and Freaky Berlin Stylish Electro. Hey, Whoever thought that you would see Public Enemy and Boy George on the same Festival … Interesting!!

Tempelhof Airport is situated right in the middle of Berlin, so there were some problems last year with their neighbours. This year, the festival is split into two parts. Part one is the Berlin Festival during the day at the airport. Part two is the Club X-Berg Festival at the Berlin Arena in Kreuzberg. The Berlin Arena is well known for housing big events, so we can expect a huge non-stop party!

“Participate in the vibrant sounds and beats of Fête de la Musique – the European and Worldwide Music Day! The Fête de la Musique began in Paris in 1982, and was founded by the popular French cultural minister Jack Lang. The festival originated in a humble burst of musical idealism and a few power connections, and yet, in only two decades has become a wildly popular global event.

 

This season, the summertime musical event will draw music lovers in over 340 cities worldwide, 60 European cities, 22 of them in Germany alone. On June 21st one can hear all styles of music that is free to the public thanks to all of the musicians, bands, orchestras, choirs, soloists and DJs that perform for free on this day. In Berlin, Fête de la Musique has been produced by the Fête Company since 1995. The festival started as a small movement and has grown to be one of the largest and most widely attended music festivals our city offers!”

U inn Berlin Hostel Karneval der KulturenCome right in! Listen and dance to the sound of Berlin: four different stages – Bazaár Berlin, Eurasia, Farafina & Latinauta – want to introduce Berlin’s music szene as well as international bands to you. Stiltwalkers, acrobats and magicians settle on the grassland and invite all visitors to test their own abilities in those fields and practice their skills in creativity. 330 market stalls attract with culinary seducements, arts and crafts and much more.

 The Highlight the Procession 12th June

On the Sunday of Pentecost, 12th June 2011, about 4.800 participants organised in 93 groups will change Kreuzberg into a sea of colours and ideas.  We expect about 700.000 visitors to celebrate Berlin’s diversity along the route. The street procession focusses on the cultural richness of Berlin, and also highlights the often hidden treasures of its international cultural scene. It questions everyday life and politics. Carnival is a combined art form that embraces many aspects of artistic expression. Due to the global migration currents it is multifacetted and of mixed styles. The Carnival of Cultures is open to everybody and all forms of cultural expression. It is regarded as a platform for a proud expression of hybrid cultural identities, containing traditional and contemporary elements. It includes and attracts all age groups, professional artists and amateurs, people from all walks of life.

U inn Berlin Hostel Friedrichshain BerlinaleWie jedes Jahr im Winter wird Berlin wieder Kulturschauplatz von ungebrochener Anziehungskraft.

Dieses Jahr stehen über 400 Filme in den Kategorien Independent und Arthouse, Generation, Perspektive Deutsches Kino und Berlinale Shots zur Wahl. Da wird es nicht einfach werden den Überblick zu halten. Auf der Seite der Berlinale kann man sich aber schon mal seine Favoriten zusammen suchen.

Berlinale Talent Campus

Jedes Jahr eine Besonderheit ist der Berlinale Talent Campus, der während des Filmfestivals stattfindet und durch viele Partner aus der Filmindustrie getragen wird. Rund 350 frische Filmtalente werden nach Berlin eingeladen um zusammen mit Persönlichkeiten aus dem Filmbusiness an Workshops und Diskussionen teil zu nehmen. Das Zentrum der 61.Berlinale wird wieder der Potsdamer Platz sein. Dieses Jahr kann man aber auch in den kleinen Underground Kinos von Berlin das große Kino erleben. “Berlinale goes Kiez” heißt das Experiment bei dem Berlinale Filme in kleinen Kiez Kinos in Kreuzberg, Weißensee, Neukölln und Charlottenburg gezeigt werden. Wir freuen uns auch dieses Jahr im U inn Berlin Hostel Berlinale Gäste zu begrüßen. Der Weg zu den Berlinale Kinos ist es nicht weit. Und zu zu dem Berlinale Partys noch viel kürzer.  Die Berlinale findet 2011 vom 10.02 bis 20.02 statt.

There’s a special focus on the diverse and continually shifting styles derived from the exploded genres of dubstep, grime and UK funky.

Another special highlight is the Modeselektion night scheduled for Saturday, 5.2 in Maria am Ostbahnhof, compiled by Berlin’s own home-grown heroes of the bass line, Modeselektor, who invited along some of their talented cronies: the video collective Pfadfinderei, Jackmaster, Ben UFO, Cosmin TRG and Siriusmo. Other highlights include a Perlon night at Panorama Bar, club concerts by Swedish techno-minimalists The Field, French duo Zombie Zombie, and the young Cologne trio, MIT, who fuse Kraftwerk-inspired conceptual electronica with the cold wave aesthetics of Joy Division – and will present their latest album at the festival.

U inn Berlin Hostel BerMuDa Special Rate

Die Berlin Music Days verstehen sich nicht als eine Musik Messe sondern mehr als ein Festival, einen Querschnitt der Berliner Clubkultur, die natürlich maßgeblich am internationalen Takt beteiligt ist. Ziel ist es elektronische Musik in einer authentischen Umgebung zu präsentieren. Welche Stadt eignet sich hierfür besser als Berlin. Die Hauptstadt der elektronischen Beats. Das Berlin diesen Titel verdient, beweisen Jahr für Jahr die Clubtrouisten die nach Berlin pilgern und die vielen Künstler, Bookingagenturen und Labels die in Berlin ansässig sind. An den 4 Tagen hat man die Möglichkeit das breite Spektrum elektronischer Musik kennenzulernen und man bekommt ein Eindruck davon was hinter den Kulissen passiert. Aber auch Szenekenner können sich austauschen und neues entdecken.
