The last couple of days we finally had the chance to enjoy the sun a bit more. The sun always has a great influence of the city of Berlin: The people are in a better mood, the city looks even more beautiful and many great outdoor-parties will be organized again. A few weeks ago we already published out list with 16 German festivals but one of the festivals is worth another mention: Lollapalooza Berlin.
The Lollapalooza festival
Lollapalooza originally comes from America but has been organized in 6 different countries over the last couple of years. In countries like Argentina, Chile, Brazil and France you can enjoy world-famous artists in the summer. Lucky for us, Germany is also one of the countries and that is why we can also enjoy the festival on the 9th and 10th of September 2017. Unfortunately there will not be camping included in this German festival, but the festival will take place in Hoppegarten, which is only 25 minutes away from Ostkreuz.
Location Rennbahn Hoppegarten
This year it will be the third time that the Lollapalooza festival will be organized in Berlin. The first year they chose Airport Tempelhof, last year it was Treptower Park and this year it will be a racecourse (for horses) in Hoppegarten. Its located in the middle of the a quite green part of Berlin and there is enough place for plenty of enthusiastic people and stages. These stages are crucial because more than 50 different artists will be playing on them. A few weeks ago the last couple of names have been published which completes a pretty solid line-up.
Foo Fighters, Hardwell, The XX and more
So far Lollapalooza always invited very solid names to their festivals. In the last editions in Berlin there have been names like Muse, Kings of Leon, Radiohead, Paul Kalkbrenner and many other great news. A good about Lollapalooza is, that there are many different music-styles available, so this festival also works for bigger groups with differing music-tastes. On Lollapalooza 2017 in Berlin you can expect some famous bands like Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, the XX and the Beatsteaks. Besides that you will be able to dance your feet off with DJs like Kygo, Hardwell, Oliver Heldens and Thomas Jack. As mentioned there will be more than 50 artists, so these are just a bunch of them. All the names can be seen below!
More than just music
Besides a great line-up, Lollapalooza is offering a lot more for their visitors. There will be “Der Grüne Kiez” for example, where you can enjoy eco-products and even do workshops where you learn how to be sustainable. Besides that, there is also the Kidzapalooza, where all children can enjoy activities, shows and music. This actually gives the festival a very friendly and nice vibe. What I personally also liked a lot in 2015 are the acts which surprise you during the day, like monkeys, dancers and circus-acts.
