Info

Admission

In order to get to Tempelhof Airport, you take the underground (U6) to Platz der Luftbrücke and simply follow the signs from there. The entrance won’t be located at Ehrenhalle/Ehrenhof like last year but at Paradestraße at hangar 6. Only the exit is located at Ehrenhalle to make sure that the simultaneously held Popkomm won’t be compromised in any way. Berlin Festival is focused on the airport’s outdoor areas only. A public day at Popkomm isn’t scheduled this year.

Flughafen Tempelhof

Like last year, our acts will perform in hangars 4 and 5 in addition to our main stage. In addition, the huge doors of the former aeroplane hangars will be entirely opened so that the hangars maximum capacity can be used. Even in front of the hangars, you will have unrestricted views of the stages. In terms of sound, we will make sure that you can enjoy the music inside the hangars as much as outside.  

Club Xberg

By deciding to end Berlin Festival at Tempelhof at midnight, simultaneous performances on all three stages are guaranteed at all times. Due to sound pollution laws, we are not allowed to continue our programme after midnight. In accordance with the local authorities, we, therefore, decided to continue the festival programme with Club Xberg at Arena Berlin
