Friends and fans of techno and hedonism, the wait is finally over.
The legendary and often infamous Berghain in Berlin has announced they're opening their doors this weekend with some bangin' techno for you to enjoy. That is, of course, if you manage to actually get in.
It's the first club night since March 2020 and it takes place this Saturday 2nd October. If you DO manage to get in you'll be treated to back-to-backs from Ben Klock and Marcel Dettman, Tama Sumo and Lakuti, and Massimiliano Pagliara and nd_baumecker, as well as Cormac, rRoxymore, Steffi, and more.
It's the first Berghain's Klubnacht since coronavirus restrictions in Germany closed their doors. Despite this, Berghain has remained active throughout lockdown hosting live-streamed events and providing art gallery space to Danish artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen and his Light Art Space installation.
Speaking in a statement about this weekend's re-opening the club said: "Music is often referred to as something universally human, a language that is understood all over the world. Which makes no evolutionary sense, but has known how to strengthen the sense of community since the beginning of human history.
"It is an echo of our humanity, which leads to similar structures and is recognized regardless of cultural background — be it a love song or a dance track. Music is the answer. With this in mind: Let the bass kick, see you on the dancefloor!"
