We’re looking towards a schön little wochenende in the Haupstadt for those not headed to Fusion or Glastonbury. Your reward for sticking around: a couple of weekend-land parties, a weekend-land art fest in Neukölln and a Melt! Festival warm-up throughout the day on Sonntag. OH HALLÖCHEN.
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.
TRESOR – Berlin Atonal presents: New Codes – MEHR INFOS
FREITAG – SONNTAG
NEUKÖLLN VARIOUS – Everybody loves it!
Northern Neukölln’s celebration of all art everything is back this weekend and promises a mega program of local artists across a selection of NK galleries, bars, spätis and every available space in between. Whatever your flavour, you’ll probably find something to keep you entertained for a least a good few hours of the weekend (and likely more) at 48 Stunden Neukölln, with everything from exhibitions, to live music, theatre, readings and a giant transclucent boat set up on Tempelhof symbolising refugee tragedy at our borders (LIVEBOAT). Pretty impressive stuff, right thurrr. As always the festival is very kiez-freundlich and aims to encourage the whole community to get involved – regardless of age/language/background. Check out their website for a full program or just go wandering around Nord Neukölln – who knows what/who you’ll stumble across.

Getting into das mood for Melt! Festival which is now less than a month away (!!), the Melt! team will be throwing a series of warm-up events featuring artists we can expect to see there, plus a few much-loved fam and friends. This weekend – it’s a totally ganz lecker affair, with those Sonntag daytime feelings being lead by Bonobo in a cheeky little DJ set. Fan of this music but not sure what to expect selector-wise? He has a tonne of schön mixes out there (for absolute nostalgia vibes, sample this his first BR set from 2012 over here). He’ll be joined by Lucy vs. the Globe fave, Chet Faker (Nick Murphy) also doing that DJ thang, alongside loads more including Werkha, ROOSEVELT Dj Set, OccupantherDj Set and a Special Guest from Monkeytown Records. Hallöchen. Shit kicks off at 14:00, tickets available on the door or in advance right here.

Shameless/Limitless told us we might dig this one as Tasseomancy are Austra’s former band and S/L are not wrong. It’s a Montag, you’ll be tender, let this quintet lead by dreamy sister duo Sari and Romy Lightman lead you gently into the week with their totally schön indie folk thang. Celebrating May’s release, their second full-length, Palm Wine Revisited, they’ll also be joined by local Helen Fry. Doors at 20:00, show at 21:00, tix in advance can be nabbed over here.
