From Ufo to Berghain, Berlin’s Rise To Clubbing Capital
Many artists, not only DJ’s, have made the choice to move and settle in Berlin. European hub for creatives and tech enthusiasts who find there a relaxed environment.
Some will tell you that Berlin has become a tourist trap! In many ways, maybe they are right. But is it possible to find a big city that is not a tourist trap today?
If you take time to look deeper than what can be seen, you’ll quickly find that Berlin is still moving strong.
A lot of this movement happens through Berlin’s nightlife, highly dynamic and eclectic.
You could start your night by having some beers at an unknown bar where the DJ is playing some balkans traditional sounds mixed with electronic IDM beats…
Walk towards the Club Der Visionaere where you could sit down for a discussion about music technology with someone from Native Instruments or another software developer who is working in the area. They also makes good pizzas at this club;
Then move on to an underground techno party until late in the night in a club like Tresor, in a party like Grounded Theory or anything else that fits your tastes.
Whatever happens, you’ll most likely end where everyone meets, where everyone come to enjoy the best sound, where everyone bring down the social wall between people that can exist in daily life… The world famous club Berghain.
What happens at Berghain stays at Berghain.
But what makes Berlin such an amazing place? The meetings and discussions you will have with people who share the same interest as you, the music.
