Get a Taste of Berlin’s Pop-Kultur Festival 2017 with this Handy Playlist

Berlin’s Pop-Kultur festival has been making a name for itself curating a mix of over and underground talent over the last few years. In its first year Berghain played host, the second edition a year later was spread across the city’s Neukölln district and 2017’s Pop Kultur is setting up shop in the grounds of the former brewery turned culture centre Kulturbrauerei on August 23rd-25th.

With over 70 concerts, DJ sets, exhibitions, installations, talk, and films on the line-up there’s probably more to see and hear than is even humanly possible. New editions to the programme are this years Pop-Kultur: Commissioned Works, conceived as a testing ground for never before seen work. Artists like ABRA, Darkstar & Cieron Magat, and Balbina are developing new performances for Pop-Kultur 2017 that will be seen for the very first time at the festival.

There’ll also be a celebration of a number of Berlin-based labels like Shitkatapult, Karaoke Kalk and Monika Records, under the banner of SKM 60. The labels are all celebrating milestone anniversaries in 2017 and you’re invited. This year’s tickets costs are lower than ever, so you’ve basically no excuse not to come.
