It’s a concert marathon, an international market place for the music industry and a meeting place for musicians: the Berlin Music Week taking place at the beginning of September is the biggest music event in the annual music calendar. This of course is no real surprise with the Berlin music scene being one of the most diverse and lively in the whole world.
Berlin – the music capital: a week full of discoveries
The weird sounds of the Underground Sound Festival are reverberating through Alexanderplatz U-Bahn station. Smooth beats are flying from the former imperial post office in the direction of Oranienburger Straße. And techno basses are pounding over the grounds of the former Tempelhof airport. From 7th to 11th September the international music world will have its gaze firmly fixed on Berlin. For this is when the Berlin Music Week will transform every nook and cranny of the city into an exciting, throbbing music metropolis – music capital Berlin. There will be top-class events taking place everywhere: from Mozart marathons at the Berlin Festival and the Berlin Clubnight via the Popkomm International Music Fair through to the all2gethernow music trade meeting. It promises to be a week full of creativity and discoveries.
Berlin Festival: celebrating in the airport
Pop and dubstep, hip hop and psychedelic, tech house and post-punk – the diversity of the “Berlin Festivals” is unique in itself. On 9th and 10th September over 60 bands and DJs will turn the Tempelhof airport’s landing strips and hangars into a musical hotspot. Headlining names include the shooting star James Blake, his London colleague Boy George or Mr. Ozio, the grandmaster of French electronic. But the absolute top act is the Beginner band from Hamburg, who made a name for themselves with hits like “Liebes Lied” (Dear Song) and are appearing together on stage for the first time for seven years. And when the airport lights go out at midnight, the partying will continue until the early hours at the Xberg club: with DJ sets, gigs and performances in the Arena Berlin, the Arena Club, the Hoppetosse and the Glashaus.
