Airing Out – Open Air in the Schlüter Courtyard Live Concerts, DJ Acts

Live concerts DJ sets and cool drinks. You are cordially invited to the open-air music festival DURCHLÜFTEN - free and outside. The transcultural and cross-genre live programme presents international guests and musicians from the Berlin scene on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 13 July to 5 August 2023.


Let yourself be carried away by our musical parcours, which leads from Accra to Bogotá, from Belgrade to Bangkok, from Harare to Istanbul and back again to the dancefloor sounds of Berlin nightlife. On twelve summer evenings, DURCHLÜFTEN creates a space to hear and see bands that span wide musical arcs and tell diverse stories - impressive, multi-perspective and extremely danceable. Framed by the baroque façades of the Schlüterhof, the DURCHLÜFTEN festival invites music lovers of all ages, Berlin visitors and Berlin night owls to experience extraordinary music.

Curated by Melissa Perales, the programme aims to surprise with the unheard and the familiar, with sounds and rhythms that move across borders and continents.

Ben Olayinka
