Berlin Festival starts to take shape


We had the most fantastic time at last year’s Berlin Festival, not least the part where we were invited onstage to dance with Major Lazer (true story). We also girlcrushed on Grimes and fell totally in love with Bonaparte. So we’re already hella looking forward to this year’s event, especially because Blur, Pet Shop Boys and Turbostaat have been announced as gracing the main stage.

The madness takes place over 48 crazy hours at Tempelhof Airport on 6th and 7th September and, once again, when the clock hits midnight, the festival will change locations, continuing at Arena Berlin under the guise of Club Xberg until the wee hours. This year, Justice, Busy P, Breakbot and SebastiAn will celebrate the 10th anniversary of French electro label Ed Banger Records.

Justice are sure to get the birthday party going with one of their acclaimed DJ sets. Tracks from the duo’s debut album and follow-up have been lighting up dancefloors across the globe since and their legendary energy-filled turns on the ones and twos are certain to delight the Berlin Festival crowds at Club Xberg. With the mastermind behind the Ed Banger label, Busy P, also stepping up to the controls at Arena Berlin, a special live performance from Breakbot and DJ set from label mate SebastiAn, the stage is set for a stellar night of music.

A limited amount of day tickets for Berlin Festival at Tempelhof Airport as well as tickets to Club Xberg at Arena Berlin and Club THF at Hangar 2 will be available as soon as all acts have been announced divided by day and venue.
