There are so many Open Airs in the city… on a good summer day it can be tricky to find out the “right one” . And because of Berlins risky weather situation — from Mauwi to Moscow in 3 seconds — one is tempted to stay in the neighborhood. There’s also no denying that not every Open Air is of high quality, therefore one sticks to the familiar events by the usual people. The music has to be boogie and the sound stellar, there should be drinks and a good off-location without being threatened by the police. There should be a peaceful atmosphere and a loving vibe among the crowd. I demand soap bubbles and confetti for every damn Open Air in the city!
On Sunday, Nico, Elisa and I jumped into the car and ended up in an adventurous place in Moabit: the old Stadtbad Tiergarten! Gorgeous. We didn’t quite know what to expect because I think none of us have even been to Moabit before and couldn’t quite grasp if that was going to be a cool or not-so-cool kind of Open Air. But you know what always works for an Open Air? Empty swimming pools. And skaterboys hanging out in the sun. And little children doing their first steps tagging the freshly painted inner walls of the bowl.
The whole thing was organized by Berlins music label Fabelwesen. The music was perfect. The sun was shining. Income generated from the drinks was used for a good cause. Beautiful people. Big love!
