What’s Up Weekend? 11 – 17 June 2015

SHARE ME:

Temps in the high 20s / schön parties / outside parties / two festivals / an ice cream festival – it’s the Berlin we stick out the shite cold winter for, and this weekend is really turning those summer feelings onnnnnn.

Below are some of the events we are recommending for the week ahead in Berlin. 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.

BERGHAIN / PANORAMA BAR – POLYMORPHISM: HOLLY HERNDON – MEHR INFOS 

 

FREITAG

://ABOUT BLANKBron loves it!

Helena Hauff is playing at ://aboutblank this Freitag and that alone is quite frankly enough for us to rate this Abyss partay highly. However on top of the Hamburgers ridiculously moreish electro-y thang this number also offers the ://about blank garden (Berlin’s vibiest club garden – we’re assuming it’ll be open?) and a whole host of rising selectors who we know nicht so viel about but sound like they’re worth getting to know, incl. Anja Zaube (nemorous rec.), Koehler (berceuse heroique, r-zone), Nonus (live) (lostkreuz rec.), Templeton (pneuma dor, mod.civil) and residents Spaceinvasion (abyss, terminal operations), KWAINT (abyss) and Jay Quentin (abyss). It’s also a Freitag – let yo hairs down.

TORTRASSEN FESTIVAL (MITTE) – Everybody loves it!

Like your festivals more city than field, affordable, chilled and with a new music discovery angle? Say hallöchen to Torstrassen Festival, returning to, er, Torstrasse (mostly) this balmy weekend. Now in it’s 5th year, the festivities will take place in various venues on and around the busy Mitte str. on both Sat and Sund, with both single day and whole weekend tickets up for grabs. Amongst a pretty tasty line-up our picks include Teengirl Fantasy (yep, the same duo behind the still good Cheaters), Torn Hawk, Janus’ Lotic, Jack Chosef (whose festival blurbs likens him to Moby, Grand Theft Auto and Pure Shores – BITTE), Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids (a group with an incredible history spanning 40+ years – read their story over here) and the double whammy at Volksbühne on Sunday of Young Fathers and Molly Nilsson.

There are also a number of cheeky off events, with a particular shout out going to the Your Mom’s Agency stage at Mein Haus am See / Cosmic Kaspar featuring a  lineup crossing experimental, electronic and hip hop via locals like Mad Kate & The Tide, Infinite Livez, Rodeo, Obi Blanche and Andreas Krach.

Community flavours – got them.

SAMSTAG

HAUBENTAUCHER Everybody loves it!

Tonnes of ice cream, a pool, beer garden, (very likely) tonnes of babes, and a casual 28 DEGREES. For ideal sunny Samstags shit probably doesn’t get much better than The Ice Cream Market, the brainchild of mint&berry, Stil in Berlin and This is Jane Wayne. Kicking off at 12:00, this tribute to the good stuff will (obviously) offer a variety of ice cream vendors and we’re looking forward to unashamedly consuming an over-indulgent amount. If you’re also yet to check out this (new-ish) outdoor venue (like us), this should also be a good chance to see what all this pool/beer garden vibe is all about. Prediction – Instagram explodes.
