What’s Up Weekend? 17 – 23 April (OSTERN SPECIAL)


Not one of the many people (/lucky Teufels) on a country or costal retreat this Easter weekend? Then make the most of four days of freizeit within the Haupstadt with plenty of musical goodness on offer and a weather forecast that also looks pretty vibey. Frohe Ostern Berlin! XX

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.

***DISCLAIMER: these aren’t the only discos that are going on – they are just the ones that stand out.


PRINCE CHARLES – Bron loves it!

Not going away? Then dive straight into four Arbeitsfreie tage with some saucy house vibes c/o Soulmate 06 this Good Friday Eve. Bringing said vibes to “Gründonnerstag”, will be NYC’s house-master, Jus-Ed, last seen here in Feb, presenting his Underground Quality label to Pbar. He’ll be joined by fellow US trio Pittsburgh Track Authority (who’s first LP should be with us soon) and for some DE flavour, local Schoppen Wittes. Doors at 23:00, with the first hour of entry also being FREI.

CHALET – Bron loves it!

Summer festival season is incoming, and in a hektisch calendar one that we’re particularly excited about is Dimensions Festival – 5 days of house and techno bliss in an abandoned fort on Croatia’s Adriatic Coast. (Sample last year’s bliss, over here). As part of what is a pretty far-reaching series of launch parties (I’m looking at you, Australia), tonight we see Berlin host a little pre-Dimensions do. Channeling those beach lazing / boat party / fort rave feelings will be a handful party-starters  incl. Andre Lodemann (Defected/BestWorks), Ossie (2020Vision/Hyperdub), Andre Crom (Off) and viel mehrrrr. Kicking off a midnight, this could run for 12 hours, if you’re lucky.

BERGHAIN / PANORAMA BAR – Bron loves it!

While not quite your 90 hr+ Silvester feier, there are still a stupid number of hours to be spent in the big house this Ostern wochenende. The Sat to Mond offering is your standout, however note that there’s a separate entry running between Berghain (men only – hihi Snax Party) and Pbar until 23:00 Sund (after which 2 become 1). Highlights across the weekend include Marcel Fengler, Tama Sumo, Virginia, Agoria, the return of Danny Tenaglia and to close out your marathon, ItaloJohnson followed by Discodromo on the upstairs floor. BYO eggs, you’ll need them.

PRIVAT CLUB – Everybody loves it!

We’re told that at 20 Benjamin Clementine fled London for Paris, found himself homeless and began busking in Montmarte’s Place de Clichy metro station to survive. A self-trained pianist this was his first foray into singing, and on one of these days he was discovered by a label owner’s friend. A tonne of gigs and support from Jools Holland later – the now-25 year old is quite frankly, killing it, and for good reason too – have you heard his Cornerstore EP? You probably should. It’s three track taster of one hell of a voice and pretty heavenly piano mastery. With lots of feedback also praising his charm as a live performer, we think you should get down to Privat Club this Mittwoch for his Berlin debut. Show at 20:00, tickets avail. in advance or at ze door.
