MINUS adventures in Berlin’s woods

MINUS  adventures in Berlin’s woods Everybody in Germany agrees: this summer isn’t the summer most people expected it to be. Too much rain, too cloudy and not enough sun. Which doesn’t mean the bad weather has stopped people from going to festivals and open airs, it was just a major turnoff. Fingers crossed then that next weekend will see better weather as Richie Hawtin is bringing his minimal techno label MINUS to Berlin’s outskirts for an open air extravaganza.

In cooperation with party hosts Patentblau and gear lender Edelmat, Hawtin and MINUS will be showcasing live sets by Marc Houle, Gaiser and Heartthrob as well as DJ sets by Ambivalent, Barem, Troy Pierce and Fabrizio Maurizi and of course Hawtin himself will be spinning records. Though you shouldn’t be expecting a Plastikman set, chances are good that the visuals around the open air area will be delicious anyway.

The exact location will be announced on august 18th at (no, it’s not the above pictured Teufelsberg) and the party itself kicks off next saturday from 12pm, ending on midnight. Don’t forget to bring an extra 15€ for admission at the door on top of your expenses you intend on spending at the bar. And in the case of bad weather an alternate indoor venue has been announced if it is pouring rain.

Recall what MINUS stands for by watching our Slices label feature as well as the one hour Slices Special, the documentary on Richie Hawtin.
