What’s Up Weekend? Xmas & Silvester Spezial !


Visiting B-town or sticking around for some or all of this holiday season? You are in for a party treat, with some of the years vibiest line-ups and marathon sessions taking place over these next two weeks of total kaos. On top of all that, we’ve got Christmas feasting, Christmas leftovers and a week where fireworks are purchasable from basically every store and completely unpatrolled.

Our party highlights are below, brace yourself – 2016 incoming.


WEIHNACHTEN WIBES (24.12 – 28.12)



Even without the initial announcement that included Ricardo Villalobos this is pretty much one of the best offerings we’ve seen all year and should be one hell of a Boxing Day delight. I’ve never been happier to be sticking around Berlin mid-holiday season. A main-floor only affair running from Sat until Mond, it’s basically a Giegling takeover with very very special guests featuring Dustin, Edward, ATEQ, Konstantin, Sa Pa and – all going to plan – Prince Of Denmark, joined by er Moritz von OswaldLevon Vincent, Pom Pom and Vrilski (AKA Vril and Voiski). The fuck. I’m so excited I could burst.



If dancing rather than eating is your vibe this Weihnachten, this (just) south of the ring-based adults playground is your ticket, with a proper party affair from the evening of the 25th through to sometime on Sonntag. Leading the charge – former-Berliner Prosumer, his partner in disco goodness Murat Tepeli, Daniel Wang and Ron Wilson – all on the 25th/26th part. They’ll be joined over the course of the wochenende by Hanno Hinkelbein, XVII, Unhuman, Phonatic and a tonne of other party starters. Never been to Griessmuehle? Could be a very fun time to check this gem out.

BEST OF SILVESTER (29.12 – 03.12)



Not content with an NYE/NYD marathon alone, Chalet are throwing 5 vibey parties in a row this Silvester woche and in an ideal scenario we have the energy for all of them. Because – VIBES. Kicking off on the 29th with a pretty delicious, something for everyone affair, Tuesday sees Cómeme boss and Chilean don of lovely, quirky, house Matias Aguayo, return to Berlin alongside local fave DJ Hell (Gigolo), South London Ordnance (Hotflush), Matt Karmil (Kompakt), Nathan Jonson (Hrdvsion) and Beaner (La Mission). There’s a very high chance of this being killer. Warm up over here.

For the NYE/NYD leg, things will kick off just before the turn of the new year to allow for watching Silvestergeddon from the safety of Chalet’s garden and run until sometime Sat. The line-up for this one is hefty, with Kevin SaundersonMarcellus Pittman , Robert Owens , eli verveine, Jeremy UndergroundDjebaliJoey AndersonBaron CastleDean DriscollJack Haighton and loads more. Still kicking? The final party in this 5-night affair sees Cinnaman, Samuel Deep & Anil Aras and Markey and more on Saturday night duties.

If a cosier dancefloor with a diverse, genre-hopping range of killer DJs is your vibe this Silvester, this is your ticket.

Berlin’s favourite hotbed of techno and debauchery generally steps up to an unimaginable level of vibes over NYE and these first few days of 2016 should be no different with almost a 4-day marathon that runs right through to Monday (and we want to bet afternoon here too). Kicking off at 1am on the 1st and taking over four rooms the line-up is as per tradition flawless and full of most of their residents and friends of the fam, incl. (deep breath):

Anthony ParasoleBorisEfdeminFiedelFunctionKobosilMarcel DettmannRyan ElliottGerd JansonHoney DijonMargaret DygasMartynNick HoppnerTama Sumo, Barker & Gonsher, Dasha Rush, The Black Madonna,  Virginiand_baumeckerSoundstreamSteffiTama SumoVirginiaAlessandro Cortini and loads more.

Returning this year, the special occasion third room where the sounds will be chilled and visuals relaxing – making it the perfect location for a Party Pause and/or cuddle puddle. Additionally if you’ve never ventured into Laboratory, especially if you’re a femme, then here’s your chance. Time in Lab is a highly recommended part of the Berghain Silvester experience.

After closing briefly, both the main floor and Peebs will re-open for the first Klubnacht of the year, feat. Answer Code RequestBen KlockDJ PeteLen FakiMarcel FenglerDinkyMike Servitond_baumeckerPrins ThomasSteffiDiscodromo and loads more. How this is even a real thing we don’t know.



As is tradition, Watergate really goes all out over Silvester with nightly parties for close to a week and lots of old favourites with cross-scene and cross-generational appeal. Our highlights include the annual Sven Väth Dec 30th do, where he’ll be joined by amongst others Daniel Stefanik and Dana Ruh. Then there’s a Sat night number which has hand-raising vibes written all over it with Deutsch party stalwart DJ Koze alongside BUTCHDie Vögel live, Dj Phono and Jimi Jules. Well worth reserving some Silvester energy for the final leg.
