BERLIN SUMMERTIME... THE CORONAVIRUS DOESN'T STOP THE CONTAGION FROM THE MUSIC!

The music in Berlin has never stopped even with the lockdown. Crossing from La Fête de la Musique to a wide range of streaming events, there's no shortage of rhythm!

Remembering the famous song Summer Of ‘69, how would be that lyric if we turn it into Summer Of 2020?

Well, certainly not as sparkling as the one proposed by Brian Adams at the time…

One thing for sure didn't change. The 21st of June remains the day of the music. This summer La Fête de la Musique has been proposed as online event and renamed for the occasion La Fête de la Haus-Musique on the wave of the motto Make music! Now more than ever!

Since its debut in the German capital in 1995, the Music Festival become for all Berliners the most eagerly awaited and beloved early summer event and give it up would have been very difficult! As it was no possible, for obvious reasons, enjoyed musical performances in the squares and streets of the city on the traditional way the organizers gave-ahead to the live streaming. The videos of musicians and bands' performance are currently available on the Fête de la Musique Berlin web site.

In this moment of entertainment forced pause, wonder about how the situation is being tackled by people, arises spontaneously. The answer is solidarity and creativity!

We saw it first in Italy where people were playing and singing from balconies; a phenomenon that aroused the interest and solidarity of many and was copied by others.

In Berlin, since the first days of Lockdown, Facebook groups and non-profit organizations, such as United We Stream, have been created in support to the cultural sector and the Berliners' Clubs through a fundraising campaign. A positive answer immediately arrived from the web audience who has been contributing to carrying on the initiative together with the participation of many DJs and partners, also based in other countries.

Growing day after day, this phenomenon has not only revealed solidarity and sensitivity towards the entertainment sector strongly affected but has also created a sort of global cultural exchange bringing a bit of Berlin party and night-life in the living rooms, all over the world.

Not bad if we consider the calibre of the DJs and the locations, many are hosting the most famous Berliner's clubs.
For DJs and musicians, it's also an opportunity and a good way to grow in visibility, make new collaborations, compose new tracks and be focus on new projects.

Who knows?!? Maybe in the next months, we will go to listen to new sounds borns in a historical moment and enriching the already vast choice in the Berlin panorama.

Berlin, a city in constant evolution, where marches and protests are marked to the rhythm of techno and electro music, where being an artist and a musician is not a hobby but a profession; never more than now has it shown that even in front of the inevitable music continues!
