Berlin is undoubtedly one of the coolest cities on the planet. It is well-known as a historical and cultural centre, as well as a hip gathering ground for artists, musicians, DJs, and producers to come and develop and showcase their talents. The music and club scene is the envy of the world and Berlin Music Week sets out to take an accurate snapshot of Berlin life and present it in all its grit and glory to an audience of local music lovers and international visitors alike.
The Berlin Music Week showcase festival, FIRST WE TAKE BERLIN held its premiere in 2013 and was an instant success - being nominated for three awards at the European Festival Awards 2013. The festival takes place in the city’s most established and famous in the centre of the city. The Kreuzberg district is perhaps the most vibrant and colourful neighbourhood of Berlin and this is where FIRST WE TAKE BERLIN will take place, with official venues and off-locations in bars, cafes, stores and u-bahn stations creating a genuine festival spirit for a few fabulous days.
The club festival takes place each evening of 4th – 5th September and features artists of diverse genres and nationalities, presented by a wide range of local and international promoters, labels, agencies, organisations, and media partners.
Berlin prides itself on discovering and developing new talent and this will be a key element of the club festival with headline artists and the most interesting newcomer acts from around the world gathering to create a spectacle of live music and performance.
