Festival Description

Berlin Festival takes place at the historic Tempelhof Airport each September in the buzzing metropolis that is Berlin. Watch your favourite acts perform in the giant former airplane hangars or dance the night away at the world’s biggest Silent Disco – an area that is always a festival highlight! When it hits midnight the party continues at Club XBerg where many of the biggest names in electronic and indie music will come together to continue the party well into the early hours – as we all know – Berlin is the 24 hour party city that never sleeps. Expect star-studded lineups like Airport Bonaparte, Cro, Daughter, First Aid Kit, Franz Ferdinand, Friendly Fires, Frittenbude, Jamie N Commons, Junip, Paul Kalkbrenner, Kraftklub, Little Dragon, Major Lazer, Morning Parade, Orbital, SBTRKT (live), Sigur Rós, Tocotronic, Digitalism, Dumme Jungs, Metronomy, Modeselektor live, Slagmalsklubben and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

Berlin Festival has teamed up with Burn Selector Festival for the next few years. For more information on this festival visit
