Berlin Festival: New home from 5-7 september at Arena Park

Berlin Festival is relocating to Kreuzberg, a cultural hotspot in the beating heart of this vibrant city, heading to its new home at Arena Park, the area around Club der Visionäre and Arena Berlin, Hoppetosse and White Trash. Taking over Arena Park for one marathon 48-hour party on September 5–7, Berlin Festival promises to be one unforgettable weekend, soundtracked by only the most diverse, promising and talked-about acts from around the globe.

Welcome to the Arena Park on the river spree - From Badeschiff right into the Ipse and off to the White Trash

Although Berlin Festival's night program has taken place at Arena Park for the last few years, the move to the new location marks the start of a new era for the festival. Berlin Festival is very happy this move worked out in time for the 2014 event as the area offers more than one could expect: Badeschiff with its beachfront and pool-atmosphere, the vintage rock 'n roll kitchen White Trash, the stunning open-air locations Club der Visionäre and Ipse, alongside Glashaus, Hoppetosse and the Arena itself will ensure that Berlin Festival will be more colourful, diverse and even more surprising.

48 hours non-stop without even changing the area

As well as relocating to a more central cultural hub, Berlin Festival becomes the first ever to offer a 48-hour program in one place, where revellers can party without needing to move between venues representing Berlin's prized sub-culture and its spirit in the best open-air location in the city. Berlin Festival was the first open-air event to prove the great possibilities of Tempelhof airport as an event location, and now this unique event heads to a new authentic site that boasts of historical Berlin flair. The festival organisers had planned a move to Arena Park since the end of the 2013 edition of the event, and now the time is right for Berlin Festival to relocate to the middle of this vibrant area which has become a focal point of Berlin's night life in recent years.

Woodkid, Moderat & Editors amongst others paired with Art Village & Food Village

This year’s all-weekend event allows revellers to party throughout an entire 48-hour period; boasting more acts, art installations, colour and craziness than ever before, this year's Berlin Festival guarantees a melting pot of creativity true to the city. An outdoor stage will be added to the event, while the popular side events are being expanded. Catch Woodkid, Moderat, Editors, Sven Väth, DARKSIDE, Warpaint, Jessie Ware, Kid Ink, Bombay Bicycle Club, Trentmøller (live), DJ Koze, Chase and Status (DJ set), Crystal Fighters, Digitalism, Neneh Cherry & Rocketnumbernine, Ellen Allien, Mount Kimbie, Hudson Mohawke, Foreign Beggars, Rustie, Jimmy Edgar and many more for the weekend’s festivities.
And in addition to the well-established Art Village, Berlin Festival will be host to a Food Village that will include typical Berlin themed food stalls in and around the festival site.
