Without the work, lifeblood and elbow grease that the city’s many young promoters contribute, Berlin would look much more dull and grey. With our Pop-Kultur lokal programme, launched in 2018 along with Dominique Schweizer and Off-Kultur, we’re aiming for a productive exchange with the local scene. In the months leading up to the festival, new and innovative perspectives from Berlin’s pop-music landscape are highlighted with live shows and interdisciplinary performance concepts. And since we aim for a continued exchange with the local scene, one of the selected Lokal promoters will have the chance to curate a part of the main Pop-Kultur programme at the following year’s festival.
Supported by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe of the State of Berlin with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in the programme »Stärkung des Innovationspotentials in der Kultur II (INP II).
