Berlin club culture is under pressure
SIGN HERE to help defend Berlin’s club scene.
When house and techno is in your blood, there is a good chance that you love Berlin. At CPH DEEP we have taken much inspiration from the capital of clubs. Berlin is a crazy, hedonistic free space with an exceptional club culture. A culture that has made us smile, talk and dance as the step counter explodes and seasons change outside the window. A culture where love and unity melts with music and creates something absolutely unique. Unfortunately, this crazy culture we all know and love, is under massive pressure at the moment.
The beautiful second coming of Weimar is seeing hard time. Clubs are being met with steep rent increases, ridiculous decibel demands and the risk of losing their license to operate after 9 pm. The creative spaces are slowly but surely disappearing. As we speak, hedge funds and other rich players on the Berlin real estate market are circling the roof of your favorite club like vultures.
For more information on this subject, Christina Brause and Tina Kaiser’s article from January paints a depressingly good picture.
