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.
#fashun – fashion week special.
This is by no means comprehensive – you’ll find an all-encompassing, official Fashion Week guide over here.

Kicking off at 23:00, you might want to write off Wednesday.
HOUSE OF VANS/THE INTERNET – Bron loves it! #fashun
This was a wild one last year – with one particular stand out being Modeselektor who drenched the crowd in magnums of Möet. Whether or not there’s a booze shower on the cards at this year’s House of Vans meets Boiler Room, Angel Haze, Dam-Funk, Lapalux, Kode9 and Letherette paired with an excitable crowd will be provide an entertaining evening – whether you’re watching from home or nab a free wristband (details over here). A two-day ‘celebration of creative culture’ located near Alex, House of Vans will also be open during the day on Wed & Thurs for a more chilled, pop-in-and-say-hallo vibe.

Fier management – your local go-to for fashion designers sales and events – are launching FIER vitrine this eve, an event showcasing a selection of fashion and jewellery designers via installations and presentations.

Perennial party-starter Move D (Off Minor) will be leading the charge and will be joined by Clone’s head honcho Serge, and locals Jonzon (Tresor) and Elisabeth (Leaves). If you’re in the mood for house, techno and feel-good, this should deliver.

Meanwhile, over in west Kreuzberg, Gretchen’s Appetite night is also doing thangs worth checking out. They’ll be hosting Warp’s Bibio, who released the pretty heavenly Silver Wilkinson last year (this will however be a DJ set) and Ninja Tune’s Letherette, also riding off the back of a tasty 2013 number, Letherette. They’ll be joined by locals Delfonic and Hazeem with Digitate , Chambray and Future Proof in Box 2.
FREITAG – SONNTAG
://ABOUT BLANK – Bron loves it!
After a couple of months of *only* 22hour affairs, Homopatik – the monthly party lead by Mr. Ties – is throwing a weekend-consuming 48 hour number. It’s practically Silvester all over again (help!!). Get all over the night/day/night vibe and enjoy what is simply put, a bloody great party.
LIDO – Lucy loves it and is going!
Techno not your thing this weekend? Never fear we’ve got you covered. Dråpe‘s in town playing all your favourite shoegaze/ pop sounds. This team outta Oslo is doing a bit of a German tour and they find themselves in the countries Capital on Saturday. The tour started yesterday, but maybe if you are in Kassel or Hamburg you can catch them tonight/ tomorrow. **Not to be confused with Drake, which is all Soundcloud seems to turn up when I try and search them (!)
AUSTER-CLUB – Lucy loves it and is going!
This Sunday our favourite Synth-pop, New Wave’n Swede Azure Blue is back in Berlin. I think it’s been pretty well documented how much we love old mate, so I don’t think I will get into that again – but if you are keen to tease your tear ducts and have your evening set alight for a lovely walk shamelessly flirting with New Wave and New Romantic – this is your gig. Doors at 21:00 SHARP !
