United We Stream
After the shutdown on Friday the 13th Berlin's club scene immediately showed solidarity. Under the motto United We Stream, Berlin's clubs, together with numerous DJs and artists, have established an online channel which represents the entire spectrum of Berlin's club scene. The virtual party platform offers an overview of the planned streams and the clubs that are participating. Among them Watergate, Tresor, Kater Blau, the Alte Münze, the Griesmühle and many others.
The platform streams live broadcasts of DJ sets, live music and performances, as well as roundtable discussions, lectures and films on topics related to Berlin club culture. You can access streams and multimedia content via partner channels such as ARTE concert and radioeins, as well as via Facebook.
For the first live broadcast from Berlin's Watergate almost 70,000 danced alone together (views on March 20).
If you would like to support Berlin's club culture during the time of crisis, you can do so via the specially created donation platform. Meanwhile you can stream a whole range of DJ sets and bring the party to your living room.
The Salon "Zur wilden Renate" has also joined the movement of the Berlin club scene. Under "Renate needs help - nothing else" the club-owners ask for support. In return they send you good vibes via all possible social media channels. On Soundcloud you can get music from "Wilde Renate"-friends all over the world.
