Of all the summer festivals in Germany, Nation of Gondwana is one of our absolute favorites. This year will mark the 25th edition of the annual three day gathering in Grünfeld, an hour’s drive away from Berlin.
A lot has changed since the first rough and ready festival back in July 1995. In the years after that, the festival was traditionally held on the Love Parade weekend.
It quickly became a cherished go-to alternative for everyone who wanted to escape the madness of a city overrun with ravers from all over the world. Since then, a lot has changed. And that can be seen from this 30 minute video recorded during the festival’s 1998 iteration. It documents just about everything from the initial setup to the last track played by Sven Dohse on Sunday afternoon. Watch it above.
