This weekend: Berlin Festival

This weekend Berlin will finally see some big festival inside the city. It has, in my opinion, a killer line-up, and takes place at one of Berlin’s most historically charged places: Tempelhof airport It was built by the Nazis, hosts one of the world’s biggest buildings, was used by the US army to fly goods in while West-Berlin city was blocked by the soviets, it’s a vast place with lots of space and now home of the Bread & Butter. And the Berlin festival. (If the site is offline, try the Google cache version)

Friday and saturday there will be shows by Deichkind, Peter Doherty, Jarvis Cocker, Dendemann, The Rifles, Moderat, Saint Etienne, Zoot Woman, Digitalism (DJ Set), Peaches (DJ Set), The Thermals, Junior Boys, Florence and the Machine, WhoMadeWho, Bodi Bill, Bonaparte, Berlin Battery and many more.

As a teaser, I recommend Shir Khan’s Bombaklaat live mix:
