This is the day when anyone with an iota of musical talent (or those who think they have talent) can come out and celebrate Music in every form to entice the sun to come out and play. Celebrated in 340 cities around the world, it promises to be a city wide street fest. So Id like to focus on the area around Warschauer Strasse:
Revaler Str. 99, 10245 Berlin-Friedrichshain, www.badehaus-berlin.com
Programm: Country, Swing, Rock’n’Roll, Garage Punk, Open Air 16:00 - 22:00 Uhr 16:00 Comedian Pharmacists (country, blues, western swing), 17:30 Rue Lascar (french swing, cajun), 19:00 General Confusion Badehaus All Star Band (rock’n’roll), 20:30 The Mokkers (garage, punk)
Simplonstr. 38-40, 10245 Berlin-Friedrichshain, www.lovelite.de
Programm: Ska, Reggae, Balkan, Open Air 16:30 - 22:00 Uhr 16:30 Echo Brutes (reggae), 17:20 Kobito (hip hop), 18:10 Polkageist (polka, balkan, ska), 19:15 iLLBiLLY HiTEC ft. Longfingah (reggae, dubstep, breakbeat), 20:15 The Valkyrians (skam rocksteady/ FI), 21:15 Cosmonautix (balalaika-speedfolk, russ.) Fête de la Nuit: weiter Indoor ab 22:00: Danza Globalistan Party mit dem Fusionista.Sound.Kollektiv (balkan, ska, world)
And then cross the bridge into the Kreuzberg area for a little more variety.
There will be 15 open air stages on the Friedrichshain side and 12 open air 3 indoor on the Kreuzberg side so definitely feel free to explore after we have met up. The first location I would like to hit is the Badehaus at 17:30 for Rue Lascar (french cajun swing sounds pretty fun). I will set the exact time for the meetup and how to find me closer to the date.
Where and When to Find Me:
Hello Folks, UPDATE: Thanks to the overwhelming amount of wine I consumed last night there will only be one meeting time at 19:00
Meeting Point : At the bottom of the stairs in front of the double decker bus that has been converted into a bar. To find it exit Warschauer Strasse and head to the right towards Revaler Strasse. Right after the kabab/food stands (before you hit the corner) there will be a set of metal stairs on your right (second set of metal stairs) with a double decker bus at the bottom. I will be on the right hand side at the bottom of the steps.
I will be at the meeting point from 19:00 - 19:20
I will have a square red and beige sling bag, and a pink umbrella (never know if its gonna rain).
For all of you who can make it see you there :)
