Berlin Festival is back from September 9th and 10th and this year it takes place in Berlin’s Templehof airport along with various other venues around the city.
The city-based festival has announced its first acts:
Suede, Battles, Beirut, Suede, Yelle, Santigold, Mount Kimbie, Mogwai, Primal Scream presents Screamadelica, Buraka Som Sistema, Apparat Band, Health, The Drums, Hercules And Love Affair, DJ Hell, A-Trak, Bodi Bill, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Pantha Du Prince, Rainbow Arabia, Wire, dEUS, Diplo, Boy George DJ set, Brodinski, Andy Butler DJ set, Jimmy Edgar, Marc Vedo, Skrillex.
Last year the festival grounds had to close at midnight and to rectify that problem, the organisers have put together Club Xberg where you can continue partying with free access to 30 clubs as well as gigs and DJ sets in other venues including Arena Berlin, Arena Club and Glashaus. There is also free public transport from Templehof to the venues in Kreuzberg and partcipating clubs.
The Berlin Music Week Ticket is available for EUR 89 (plus booking fees) via www.berlinfestival.de/tickets. Tickets are on sale today.
