Berlin is a renowned city of transition. For more than twenty years, she has grown, lolled and changed in her role as a music capital, simultaneously setting global trends.
The city changes at a dizzying pace and change is good if you see and take advantage of the substance you find here. Celebrated worldwide as one of the most interesting spots for creativity, innovation, originality, uniqueness and authenticity – not least because of its pioneering mix of music industry, festivals and club events – Berlin sets a matchless international standard. A variety of music events are held year-round, all them catering in different ways to the countless interests, needs and expectations of event organisers, associations, networks as well as consumers. Nevertheless, because of the large number of individual efforts and activities, the communicative impact both inside and outside the city is too weak to truly, effectively put Berlin on the map as THE international music capital in the world. With Berlin Music Week, the city has a platform, the activities, commitment, diversity, passion, synergies, communication and charisma tied into one. This broad and cooperative presentation reinforces Berlin’s standing as an international music hotspot both within the city and beyond.
Supervised directly by Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH, from September 3-7 Berlin Music Week will become not only a communicative, but organisational framework for the activities of its local and international partners. The project is supported by the Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research, Berlin Partner and visitBerlin.
