SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Fly BerMuDa Festival, 8pm, Tempelhof Airport
Summer was the season of festivals in Berlin, followed up by the week-long Berlin Music Week in September. But just when you thought the city’s music celebrations were going into hibernation, another festival – set against the backdrop of a week-long celebration – pops up.
Fly BerMuDa is an all-day event that heralds the end of Berlin Music Days, a 72-hour-plus music free-for-all that puts electronic music, certainly a genre that Berlin does better than most other cities, in the spotlight.
And it’s no surprise that the festival keeps to a night owl’s schedule, with doors opening at 8pm and music playing on four separate stages until 8am, or whenever the last person leaves the dance floor. There’s a ton of big name DJs as well as local acts playing – check out the website for a full schedule. And don’t forget to go home! Natalye Childress
