For those undecided about Electric Picnic right now, you could always consider a weekend in Berlin the following week (or if you’re a festival freak then hit both) for Berlin Festival. Spend a long weekend in one of the coolest cities around anchored around the festival which takes place by day in a disused airport of Templehof and by night, it turns into Club Xberg, a warehouse rave. And you can hit Berghain after too.
The lineup for this year includes includes:
Blur, Pet Shop Boys, MIA, Bjork, My Bloody Valentine, Boys Noize, John Talabot, Justice (DJ set), Pantha Du Prince, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Le1f, Villagers, Parquet Courts, Royksopp, Miss Kittin, Bastille, Fenech Soler, The Sounds, White Lies, Ellie Goulding, Klaxons, Breakbot, Sohn, Para One, Bosnian Rainbows, New Young Pony Club, 10 years Of Ed Banger Records, Matias Aguayo, Savages, Is Tropical, Casper and more.
I’ve got a pair tickets to giveaway to the festival. You’ll still have to get yourself there and sort out accomodation but Berlin is relatively cheap and both Ryanair and Aerlingus fly there.
