19.09.2014 · No comments

Remem­ber the incred­ibly well done AXE Peace cam­paign we already repor­ted about a while ago? The time has come to round up its achieve­ments, which are abund­ant. With the Motto “Make Love, Not War”, which was prom­in­ently painted at the notori­ous street art corner of Fal­ck­en­stein­straße, the cam­paign was also phys­ic­ally brought to life in Berlin.

Have you ever been to a con­cert in a table dance club? There’s a first time for everything, I guess. In a spec­tac­u­lar “This is so Ber­lin” man­ner, Con­verse have out­done them­selves on grandeur. Schöne­bergs local exquis­ite play­house “Golden Dolls” got ready for Ber­lins best dressed fash­ion and music kids. Impa­tiently, all were wait­ing for the mil­lion dol­lar

Berlin Festival 2014

08.09.2014 · No comments

Urgh, Ber­lin Fest­ival. It’s one of those events where all people go “uhh­h­h­h­h­h­h­hhh yeah, I’ve got like, super-free tickets, so I’m going for a minute or two even though it’s like, super-shitty”. Ahahahaha. I love that. Then again, that’s what people in Ber­lin usu­ally say about any big name party, so I tried to detach myself from the pre­ju­dice and enjoy my

Atonal Festival 2014

04.09.2014 · One comment

The ori­gins of Atonal go way back. It were the early 80ies when the infam­ous Kreuzber­ger SO36 hos­ted the fest­ival with bands like Ein­stürzende Neubauten. One of the ini­ti­at­ors was the later Tresor-Founder Dimitri Hege­mann. So its no coin­cid­ence that the new Atonal takes place in the same build­ing that is home to Tre­sor: The Heizkraft­werk Mitte. There could

Opera Festival 2014: Arena Di Verona


Eng­lish ver­sion below In unserem let­zten Beitrag haben wir ein­ige Ideen zu den besten Fluchtorten des Som­mers gegeben. Für die Romantiker gibt’s noch einen beson­deren Tipp: Ver­ona. Hier haben sich Romeo und Julia vor langer Zeit die ewige Liebe geschworen, und die Stadt im Nor­dos­ten von Italien bietet ein­iges, um dieser wun­der­schönen Liebesgeschichte gerecht zu

Festival Season with Diesel — Win tickets to Berlin Festival*


Since the com­mon Ber­liner loves to excess­ively party out­side of Ber­lin, fest­ival sea­son is more than just a vague prom­ise of great music and sun­shine: it’s a com­mit­ment to the life­style. There are big fest­ivals, such as the MELT! only an hour away, there are small fest­ivals, such as the Möhre which we’ve told you about, and

Berlin bleibt unsere Stadt

While the suc­cess of the 100% Tem­pel­hofer Feld ini­ti­at­ive has left a warm glow in people’s hearts, the future devel­op­ment of the city remains a con­cern for many. A couple of weeks ago I atten­ded a rally whose motto “Ber­lin bleibt unsere Stadt” (‘Ber­lin remains our city’) col­lec­ted a broad coali­tion of people and groups con­cerned with future devel­op­ments

Ah, thank the Almighty we’ve had enough prac­tice for years and years of stand­ing of queues. We’ve passed the Berg­hain test a couple of times, which makes us pro’s in the art of jump­ing the line with 20 people without any­body ever noti­cing (let me tell you, it’s a LOT harder to jump the line any­where else

CSD Kreuzberg 2014 Recap


The thing with ana­log pho­to­graphy is that the full rolls some­times live and die in my back­pack without ever being noticed. That’s why it can take a little longer than usual for me to develop them and finally real­ize “oh, so THAT’s what I for­got writ­ing about”. So my cov­er­age of the Kreuzberg CSD might be a little late, but it’s

We all heard that story before. The nev­erend­ing tale of ber­lins rise to cool. The myth about its unique party cul­ture. Its about the spa­tial free­dom, the anything-goes, the nobody-cares and the do it your­self that was build on these ele­ments. The sweet memory of the time when all the things were actu­ally hap­pen­ing every­body is asso­ci­at­ing ber­lin

Converse Rubber Tracks Live Recap: Burgers, Chucks & Little Dragon!


In the past six weeks, Ber­lin based music artists were invited to par­ti­cip­ate in the Con­verse Rub­ber Tracks pro­ject. After choos­ing the bands out of the applic­a­tion pool by a Rub­ber Tracks jury, Con­verse ren­ted out the Kreuzberg TRIXX stu­dio and had each of the bands and musi­cians use it within 14 days to fine-tune their
