I was back in Berlin and I found out Azari and III was playing that day. With nothing planned yet, I went to the concert, which was nice. The location was super, check the ceiling.
The festival which officially ‘closed’ the entire weekend (not counting the numerous after parties); Fly BerMuDa. I arrived fairly late, around 2 am. Just in time to catch Ellen Allien. I spent the most time in the Beatport room where Deadbeat and Âme were playing.
My first night in Berlin (of this weekend). I started out in the Levee Club where a Dutch night was organized with Dimzen & Wijnand van de Heuvel. Unfortunately this party was kind of a dud so I left for Kater Holzig after to see Tom Ruijg and Efdé playing a nice set in a packed club.
Berlin is my favourite city in the world and it has been since I was a kid. That’s why I don’t mind going at all. This time I planned a trip which was ‘work minded’ so I didn’t plan any parties.
Since I was in Berlin for Popkomm and my flight out was on Saturday morning 8 am (I didn’t book it…) I decided to go to the Friday night of Berlin Festival, which took place, like Popkomm, on the airport Tempelhof.
For my work for DJ Monitor I went to the music fair Popkomm which took place from Sept. 8-10 at the former airport Tempelhof in the middle of Berlin.
For weeks I had planned this trip to Berlin and I was hella excited to go… Saturday around 1 I left my house and returning 10 min later for a forgotten passport. I rushed oved to the train station to find out the train was 30 minutes delayed. A good start of my trip….
Tijdens het ADE kreeg ik het goede nieuws dat een bekende van me mijn held Fatboy Slim had geboekt voor een dj set in de Weekend Club in Berlijn, 2 weken later.
Tresor Park was held outside of Tresor and was a hit for many years. Especially when Sven headlined it. Massive queues, people dancing in the sun, dust and fun… those were the days…
Low Spirit (partially responsible for the Love Parade in these years) organised 2 nights at Arena/Glashaus. This was the second one and the official Love Parade afterparty with Marco Bailey, Taucher, Miss Djax and others.
