September in Berlin: Music and Festival Guide

The Festival Season is over and we still do not have enough of dancing under the open sky, listening to music and being surrounded by people. What is there to do in Berlin instead? We are sharing our top picks with you.

Experiencing music a little bit differently…

Listening to Pink Floyd  and looking into space … you can experience that on the 7th and 21st at the Zeiss-Großplanetarium. On the 21st there will also be a . Homage to Queen afterwards.

Starting in September, the  lunch concerts at the philharmony   will take place again: every Tuesday at 1:00 pm you can have lunch with a small concert – for free!

The three best festivals this month…

An absolute highlight every September is the Berlin Art Week. From the 11th to the 15th, contemporary art is shown not only in the large museums, but also in galleries, project rooms and studios. The best way to see it is to go for a walk around Linienstraße on Wednesday when most openings take place: Here you will not only find new art, but often a drink for free. On Thursday the Art Berlin Fair and Positions Art Fair open in Tempelhof Airport. If it rains you can spend a whole day here, so much to see!

Next weekend the Torstraßen Festival The Knot at the Volksbühne takes place. From 12:00 on Saturday to Sunday at 5:00 there are 27 concerts and DJ sets from different music scenes from Berlin. You can also stroll around the Independent Label Market in the foyer.

From the 3rd to the 19th, the Berliner Festspiele is organizing the Musik Fest Berlin  to mark the start of the new season. At 26 events forgotten and unusual works from the past and present are presented. So if you want to try out classical and modern music instead of techno, this is the place for you.

Dancing under the open sky…

There are plenty of clubs in Berlin, but the best place to dance outside is in the Ipse, Polygon and Sisyphos. The Griessmühle and the Wilde Renate also have large outdoor areas where you can relax when you need a break from dancing. At the Klunkerkranich you can not only eat, drink and listen to music but also enjoy an amazing view of Berlin.
