What’s new across Berlin’s legendary music scene? What’s changing, which clubs are opening, which are closing? We keep you in the loop.
There’s news from BERRIES, the queer-feminist party for hip-hop and bass music. For their next installment, they’re moving from OHM to Kantine am Berghain. The two hosts, Tchuani and Myshkin, have invited exciting guests, as per usual. Dreea of Mouthpiece fame, for example, or Ace of Diamonds from the initiative No Shade, as well as Kim She. Highlight: rapper Gianni. Her debut EP isn’t even released yet, but she’s already rumoured to be the next big thing.

If you’re less up for cutting-edge beats and more in the mood for noughties nostalgia via the pearls of British indie music, Karrera Club’s 23rd anniversary at Bohnengold is the place for you (you absolute old person). While they’re not organising gigs anymore — they once hosted the Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys and even Adele in Berlin — they still throw a solid, old-school indie party.
Address: Reichenberger Straße 153, Kreuzberg | Saturday, May 25th, from 11pm onwards, free entry
Directions: U-Bahn station Kottbusser Tor
