Some good news in Berlin, last weekend, Berghain garden opened its doors for the first time in nine months.
The event kicked off from 1 pm on Saturday 10th July at the Berghain ‘Klubgarten’ with some incredible sets from Etapp Kyle, Freddy K, Paramida, Ben Klock and Gabrielle Kwarteng.
Anyone wanting to attend the Berghain garden events will need to provide proof of vaccination, a negative test or recovered from COVID-19 recently. In addition, they must wear an FFP2-grade mask while in the queue and be scanned as attending – however, this isn’t a guarantee of entry.
The garden is only open during dry weather; on the Berghain website, a statement reads:
“281 days later, and we meet again in a garden. From this Saturday on, weather permitting, we will open our outdoor dance floor with DJs every weekend.”
“Based loosely on the motto of a great American DJ philosopher: We keep on dancing and prancing! Things kick off with sets from our Ukrainian Berghain resident Etapp Kyle, marathon human and techno activist of the first hour Freddy K, as well as Panorama Bar resident Paramida. Dancing for a better tomorrow.”
“Only in dry weather. For your and everyone’s protection against droplet infection and aerosols, hygiene measures are ensured in Klubgarten. Admission only for people vaccinated, recovered or tested negative within less than 24 hours.”
Next weekend will see Gerd Janson, Roman Flügel and Steffi b2b with Virginia.
Also, a contemporary art showcase titled ‘Studio Berlin’ is currently on exhibition within the monstrous club space, including Panorama Bar and Säule until late August. We reported back in May the Berlin government had taken steps to realise the importance of the city’s nightlife industry. This resulted in changes to the law placing dance music events in the same bracket as concerts while also halving taxes on ticket sales and declaring clubs as cultural institutions in an official capacity.
