Every 1st May Kreuzberg unites for one big party. Last year we had already covered the extraordinary people who make the MyFest happen every year. They’re mostly responsible for the good time everybody has dancing, eating and simply enjoying the kick off for a new summer season. This year though, we didn’t spend a lot of time at the MyFest. Instead, our flat on Skalitzer Straße invited all of our friends over to hang around on our makeshift summer balcony right on Skalitzer Straße. From here we had the best view on the people who were strolling around the Kreuzberg Kiez from one Open Air rave to the next.
Needless to say, we had an amazing time far off from riots or disturbances. The music was top notch as always, people were drunk by 2 PM and everyone had a pretty awesome time. We’re already looking forward to the next Mayday which is kinda like a Summer version of New Year’s Eve: finally, people are out on the streets again. This is the Berlin we love.
