We had the most amazing and enlightening trip to Berlin this month.
The reason was the stag weekend of cousin Glenn.
The itinerary was built around Berlin Festival. http://www.berlinfestival.de/en.html
The Berlin Festival is situated in the now disused airport Templehoff in south central Berlin.
It would appear to have been organised by the most efficient, innovative and creative promoters and provided a 2 day extravaganza that should be envied by many cities globally.
The bands ran on time, the sponsorship was tastefully subtle, the weather was perfect, the venue was easy to navigate and the line-up was eclectic (maybe not as heavy I’d normally like).
Highlights of the event for me were:
Day 1 :
Capital Cities from LA & Blur
Day 2 :
Bjork, Klaxons, White Lies & My Bloody Valentine
We will be returning next year to the festival and to enable us to see/experience a bit more of the city and its awesome people.
