Gegen XS at RSO
Gegen XS (“XS” as in excess) translates roughly to “against excess” – a knowingly ironic name for what is most definitely a celebration of excess. This nearly three-day-long mega party is a celebration of liberation, self-love and defiance. Lasting over 60 hours and featuring around 40 DJs, Gegen XS is proof that RSO is quickly becoming one of the most ambitious clubs in Berlin.
- RSO Schnellerstraße 137, Schöneweide
Floorgasm at Trauma Bar
The Floorgasm label is throwing its first party of the year! The Spring Fling is a celebration of the weather getting warmer and the days getting longer – but this party is all about the nighttime. Expect breakneck BPMs at one of Berlin’s hidden gems, the Trauma Bar and Kino.
- Trauma Bar and Kino, Heidestraße 50, Moabit
Klubnacht at Berghain
Klubnacht at Berlin’s most famous club is always worth checking out – but this weekend’s set is particularly phenomenal. Highlights are Freddy K, whose career in techno goes way back to the early years of the 1990s, and Etapp Kyle, a Ukrainian DJ whose deeply-layered sound has an almost physical quality to it.
- Berghain, Am Wriezener Bahnhof 3, Friedrichshain
The Space Age Kiki Ball at Nordkomplex
From its origins in New York City queer subcultures in the 1980s, ballroom performances and voguing have become globally known and appreciated – and now you have a chance to experience it! The Space Age Kiki Ball will be a celebration of this culture, and will feature a ball that explores fashion, dance and pop culture. After the ball, expect an epic party for everyone.
- Nordkomplex, Neumagener Str. 25, Weißensee
Soliparty at Menschmeier
The full title of this event is Love Enteignen – Hate Groko – Enteignen being the movement to nationalise and subsidise housing in Berlin to reduce rents, and GroKo referring to the incoming Kai Wegner/CDU-led government. This “solidarity party” will distract you from the high rents, even if just for a night, and will feature DJ sets, live music, fashion and merch.
- Menschmeier, Storkower Strasse 121, Prenzlauer Berg
