Are you checking out any new music this week?

Berlin has so much to offer that it can be hard to keep track of all the acts playing in the city. Luckily, you don’t need to: Berlin-based musician Gil Hockman has been compiling a massive Spotify playlist made exclusively of acts who are playing in the city – and updating it each week.

He’s been undertaking this awesome effort since the summer of 2022. It’s very impressive – so go ahead and buy him a coffee for his efforts (musicians can submit details of their gigs too).

A new list drops every Wednesday for the following week, so all these acts are playing between December 5 – 11. Don’t just listen here, go attend some of the gigs in person! Happy listening!

Check back next week for another playlist!
