Berlin Weekend – an overwhelming jungle of clubs, parties and opportunities. Real Berliners writing and two decades experience in Berlin nightlife make sure you end up at the right party. Mix the typical Berlin attitude with a dash of nostalgia and a touch of loving parental advice and there we go.
1st of May weekend is always something special for Berliners. First, it is a long weekend, than there is plenty of party and this year it comes together with the gallery weekend, which is, frankly, the shit. So many events, don’t know where to start. Trying to focus on a few special and the Monday is free for roaming around Xberg and discover backyard open airs en masse. The odd Berliner of course flees the city, having a nostalgic one „Back than Kreuzberg it used to be this and that and look at it now“ kind of style.

Experience Zukunftsmusik by DJ Hell & Monomango / Seven Star Gallery / 19.00 / Berlin Mitte
Lineup: DJ Hell & Monomango as the title implies
It’s no well kept secret that we have a secret crush on DJ Hell. He reminds us of a dinosaur, a fossile out of times around the 2000s, when there was Ibiza, the old Cookies, Rio and that kind of stuff. Like, when Mitte used to be cool. True, a real long time ago, we are aware of that.
Within the context of the release of his much anticipated album „Zukunftsmusik“, DJ HELL collaborates with Berlin based design studio MONOMANGO to create a 360 degree virtual reality experience around two brand new songs. The work will be showcased incorporating elements such as light sculptures, dance performers, flying cars and retro future disco in virtual space.
