CTM Festival has just announced “Eishalle”, an installation in Berghain’s massive Halle am Berghain room that will feature a real ice skating rink. According to the festival’s website, the room will open at 16:00 on January 25 and run through February 10 (opening times are listed below).
Eishalle will host performances by a range of DJs and performers including Norwegian disco selector Skatebård, Mophine label boss Rabih Beani, female:pressure associate (and Berlin club fixture) Mo Loschelder, Room 4 Resistance resident DJ Occult and music journalist Joe Muggs. Beyond the music, the room will be provided with “a dazzling kinetic light array courtesy of Berlin’s premier light artist Christopher Bauder”, according to the festival’s website.
Entrance costs €5 and skates can be rented for €3. For more info, go to the installation’s page on the festival’s website.
