+ News On »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs«

Tickets and full details are available at

The new three-day festival »Pop-Kultur« begins August 26-28, 2015. It features numerous German and international premieres as well as exclusive concerts, talks and lectures on all the stages of Berlin’s famous Berghain: the Panorama Bar, the Halle am Berghain, the Schlackehalle, plus the Berghain canteen and the cloakroom. »Pop-Kultur« is much more than a space for concerts and energizing DJ-sets.


– Stones Throw and Invada Records artist, Anika, will exclusively collaborate with German electro punk legend Marco Haas aka T.Raumschmiere, who’s the founder of Shitkatapult whose put out music from Apparat and Warren Suicide plus many more. Both artists share a common tendency towards navel gazing and warm hypnotic beats to lose your mind to, free you from your aching bones, which they will bring to the stage of Berghain on Thursday evening.

– Kane West of Kero Kero Bonito will play a DJ Set at Panorama Bar on Thursday night. The London based producer and DJ is part of the PC Music-clique, that is currently showering the pop world with digital cuteness and ecstatic keyed up plastic-hyper-trance beats.

– The festival’s grande finale will be an open-end Panorama Bar DJ set by legendary Hacienda and Madchester DJ Dave Haslam. He will also host a talk with Bernard Sumner of New Order and Joy Division fame.
