Described as the “city of transition”, Berlin has attracted a phenomenal amount of global interest through its unique music events. With venues such as Berghain/ Panoramabar harvesting the best sounds and causing an explosion of deep underground house and techno that infiltrates the airwaves, it’s no wonder the curiosity reaches beyond the history of the German capital.
If you have experienced or are yet to see the wonders of Berlin, a 5 day music event will show you what Berlin has to offer. Not only will you be exposed to the talent that has graced/will grace the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg district, there will be access to art, fashion and information on the latest dance music trends. This neighborhood is near to Spree’s Osthafen (Eastern-harbor), home to stunning and modern architecture. As the urban wonders will inspire all, aspiring DJs and producers will be able to express their creativity, exchange music ideas, whilst losing themselves in what the city has to offer at the Word on Sound Business Conference. It is likely you’ll achieve a full contact book and heaps of refreshing ideas.
Party lovers will find all bars in the district a stones-throw away from one another and will see the wonders of clubs such as Lido, Comet, Magnet, Glashaus and many more. You will also be in walking distance of cafes and underground stations, that will make it simple to find your way around. Although the acts are yet to be finalised, there will be unlimited exposure to such a wide variety of musical styles. Not only will you be likely to go home with a sore head, you will get a buzz off the music. Berlin is a sleepless city with music in the blood, and is bursting with entertainment.
