What’s Up Weekend? 23 – 29 May 2015


May Day is just around the corner and summer is pretty much here. Fuck. we. are. excited. Fitting in perfectly with that summer vibe is the return of Sun Glitters to Berlin on Tues – to which you could win tickets (hallöchen!) – and a weekend-long birthday celebration for ://about blank – get around Berlin’s best club garden. Meanwhile, if all this sunniness  is a bit too soon, Dystopian at Arena Club on Fri will be keeping things pure / dark / techno. Options!

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.


ARENA CLUBBron loves it!

One of Berlin’s best techno parties returns for it’s quarterly round at Arena Club and as always is serving a pretty flawless menu of prime techno sounds. In this April edition, Dystopian – the Berlin-based label / party collective / agency – will play host to rising and rising Monkeytown trio Fjaak (live), alongside  Token/M_Rec’s Tadeo, and own Dystopian’s Alex.Do (if you haven’t caught him yet, it’s time you did) and Distant Echoes. Coupled with the Arena Club dancefloor – a cosier alternative to the Berghain mainfloor and one of our faves in Berlin – this is our pick for Freitag.

://ABOUT BLANK Bron loves it!

://about blank are turning 5 and we’re all invited to their big bday bash to celebrate. I’ll take any excuse to celebrate a birthday, and a club at that is a core member of Berlin’s clubbing scene is a pretty good one. Kicking off Saturday afternoon, the festivities will roll on to some time on Mond and amongst other things promises: “sektempfang, konzertflügel-revival, mikrodisko soli boom box, rattenchor, kinderdisco, poetry slam, hüttenzauber und der beliebten soli-tombola mit gisela sommer und inge borg!”. Did you go to DE class this week? Kein Ding, there’s your hausaufgaben. On top of the novelty, their line-up is really decent with party guests including Redshape (live), Matias Aguayo, Rødhåd, Ashraf Sharif Khan & Viktor Marek (live), Freddy K b2b Silva Rymd, Elisabeth, DJ Xing and loads more. Cake (maybe), bday vibes (definitely), killer tunes (for sure) – we’re in.
