After the Art Village’s great success in 2011, art will, once again, be part of Berlin Festival. Alongside a top-class line-up, a unique platform will emerge at Tempelhof Airport where Berlin’s urban and street art will be presented by a wide range of artists. Check out all participating artists under the following link. Find all info on the !K7 anniversary exhibition at Art Village under the following link.



Welcome to the Poetry Saloon, our spoken word arena at the Art Village. Some of the best poetry slammers meet here to battle against each other, reaching for that microphone to let the words flow.
Solo poetry shows, poetry slams, electronic poetry and open mics are part of the deal, verbal data compression, a wild mixture of performance and poetry, pure jokes and absolute truth. For further info and schedule, click the following link.


Berlin Debate 2012 – Yes, we copied too!

For the first time, an open debate is held at Berlin Festival. By addressing copyright issues, the festival organisers turn to the most important socio-cultural discussion of our times. We are looking forward to a hea- ted discussion about the value of intellectual property. The Berlin Debate 2012 will take place at the Berlin Music Week Stage at 4pm on 8th September.


Silent Arena Aftershow Party

Silence is definitely not what you get here. Grab your headphones, and there’s no stopping you. Before you take the trip to Club Xberg, the Silent Arena Aftershow Party will kick off just after the last headliners on the main stage finishes to bring you all the classics and danceable tunes right in your ear at the biggest Silent Arena ever. It’s only going to be silent on the outside. Pick up your headphones for a EUR 20 deposit close to the main exit.
