Apply for a Slot at the Berlin Music Week

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, producers, designers, film makers and liberal minds of all persuasions to come and develop and showcase their talents. The music and club scene is the envy of the world and, thanks to the  Berlin way of mixing sleepless nights with productive days, the creative legend of Berlin continues to grow.
Berlin Music Weeksets 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 Club Festival takes place in the city’s most established and famous venues.  Lido, Magnet, Comet, Astra, Arena, Badeschiff, Glashaus, Festsaal Kreuzberg, and Postbahnhof nestle next to new halls such as Bi Nuu (formerly Kato) to create a village of venues in the centre of the city.  The Kreuzberg district is perhaps the most vibrant and colourful neighbourhood of Berlin and this is where the focal point of Berlin Music Week will be, 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 from 5th – 9th 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.
