With more and more people voting for the right-wing party Afd, Berlin Clubs want everyone to know that “Nazis are not on the guest list”. The techno community is everything the Afd hates: inclusive, anti-racist, queer and progressive. That’s why thousands of people walk and party this Sunday – to show that Berlin is love, tolerance AND good music. Meeting point is Hansaplatz at 11am.
The Australian DJ Claire Morgan opens this Sunday afterhour at Else Open Air Club. Starting 2pm she shows an impressive set that somehow combines techno with soundtracks and commercial music (and makes it sound GOOD!)
This Thursday at Jazz Club at Bar Bobu the lovely Fina and Sophie Sutton will play their sweet and haunting tunes. The two talented songwriters will play their pop’n’folk gems and nobody will not be moved by these two amazing musicians. It’s gonna be a night worthwhile.
Doors at 7pm. Free entry, but donations are always welcome 🙂
If you’ve never been to the Karneval der Kulturen in Berlin you have missed on one of the best representations of the essence of Berlin culture.
Once a year for a whole weekend all Berlin comes together to celebrate its colourful and unique, multi-cultural, vividly beating soul with a big street festival that spreads from Hermannplatz in Neukölln all the way to Möckernbrücke.
Karneval der Kulturen is an invitation to everyone to experience the cultural, gastronomical and musical variety of the city. It’s easy to spend the whole weekend strolling from stall to stall, watching bands play in the streets or to take in the whirlwind that is the parade on Sunday.
Around the celebrations for the 1st of May there’ll be a Free Open Air at the Bolzplatz in Falkensteinstraße in Kreuzberg. Come and listen to Techno & House, dance, have fun and support the local Cafés and Spätis. Entrance is free and everybody is welcome. Just take care of your trash, avoid bringing glass bottles and pets and be friendly and respectful with the people around you.
The 1st of May is International Workers Day and in Berlin it’s celebrated with the Myfest 2018 in Kreuzberg. It’s a tradition. It’s a festival. It’s a great vibe. It’s as Berlin as it can get. Don’t miss out on this.
Germany might be known for a lot of things but certainly not for its stand-up comedy. In this regard Moritz Neumeier is a refreshing and vitalising change. He’s smart, he’s witty, he’s politically relevant, simply, comedy at its finest. Check out his show Moritz Neumeier: Hurra. at Mehringhof-Theater on Tuesday (Wednesday and Thursday as well) at 8:00 pm. It’s worth it!
This show is in German and you’ll get tickets for 10-17 € at the door.
Psst, wanna hear something cool? Ella Clayton plays the Friday Night Live at the R/D this Friday. She’s a great singer songwriter from London, who resides in Berlin at the moment to record her debut EP and has already built a solid fan base in the city. It’s definitely worth a listen 😉
If you haven’t heard of Laura Guidi yet you haven’t experienced one of the most exciting musicians Berlin has to offer. She’s a talented songwriter, a great showman and a unique voice. Her songs of love and life and death will grab you by the heart and draw you in. Although she plays with her band quite frequently nowadays, this gig is something special and intimate, just her and her guitar. Don’t miss Live Music / Laura Guidi / voice & guitar.
Berlins art scene is famous for its underground artists. The ukranian artist Yelizavyeta, for example, updates popart in her new series Poster Girl. Realistic portraits meet popart elements! The exhibition opens daily from 11-7pm and is great for all you artsy people out there.
