Berlin Midsommar Festival, a techno open air – tonight! – and a plethora of vibes both inside the clubs and out, our picks for the next week or so are below. Each of them is either highlighted with a:
Bron loves it! – more electronic, than not.
Lucy loves it! – more indie boy band/ pop vibes/ not techno.
Everyone loves it! – 2.5 words: shit’s ACE and/or edible.
IPSE – Bron loves it!
We’re looking at a balmy Sommer’s abend / peak Berlin open air Wetter tonight which is great news for this little dance happening on Ipse’s roofless dancefloor. Kicking off at 18:00 – when that 30 grad Sonne is likely still to be prime – Festival Forte are joining forces with Be-At TV to present a pre-party ahead of the festival proper which happens at a castle on the Portugese coast in late August. In line with their main event, tonight’s pre party is a punchy techno number and will feature Ancient Methods (aufnahme + wiedergabe / Ancient Methods), Expander (Soniculture) and Subjected (Vault Series / Electric Delux), with the whole thang also streamed line via Be-At TV. Tickets can be snapped up in advance or on the door, vibes found on that open air dancefloor.
