Picture South African indie songstress Alice Phoebe Lou singing of love and sorrow in an old empty brewery. Elsewhere, an abandoned swimming pool in Neukölln resonates with the percussive sound of Israeli musician Ben Dagovitsch. On Tempelhofer Feld, Berlin locals Ohrbooten can be found beating away the rainclouds with their drums. It is images such as these through which THE OPEN STAGE BERLIN documents Berlin’s thriving music scene. The aim: to capture the spirit of the people and the places that embody the soundtrack of our city, to promote musicians, and to provide a platform that showcases great Berlin music – all free of charge.
Since February 2014 a team of 14 people from 9 different nations have been working together to make this project possible. To date, there are over 60 videos featuring artists from all over the world playing all genres of music - in peddle-boats, greenhouses, photo booths, and old swimming pools. Every week, 3 to 4 new videos are produced. The website is free to use, and without registration or advertisements. In order for it to remain this way, The Open Stage Berlin needs your support!
