Berlin clubbing

Updates on how the pandemic is influencing the electronic music scene on Germany

By News No Comments

Night clubs are presently prohibited in Berlin due to the spread of the Coronavirus. The club scene has previously campaigned for vaccination and planned events such as the “long night of immunization” in the summer.

• The Berlin Club Commission has proposed that the present dancing ban be replaced with obligatory PCR testing. “We need a long-term solution here so that we don’t bring our cultural life to a halt with each new wave,” said Pamela Schobess, head of the committee. “PCR testing provides security in this situation.”

• German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and the 16 state premiers reached an agreement to close all nightclubs by New Year’s Eve. Previously, clubs were only required to close in areas with high Covid-19 instances. Private meetings will also be limited to a maximum of ten persons who have been vaccinated.

• From January 3rd to 9th, the Berlin venues Sage Beach, Klunkerkranich, Mensch Meier, and /about blank will serve as temporary Covid-19 immunization centers. More information may be found here.

• The Nachtdigital team announced last week that their most recent event, NACHTIVILLE, had been postponed for the second year in a row. It has yet to occur in its new site in northern Germany.

The nightclub capacity will be reduced by 50% in Berlin from this weekend

Due to the increase in COVID instances, nightclubs in Berlin would be forced to reduce capacity limitations to 50% starting on Saturday, November 27.

The limits will be in effect for less than a month, until December 19, when they will be reviewed. Even if they’ve previously recovered or have had both vaccinations, clubbers will now be forced to demonstrate a negative test upon admittance into nightclubs under the new ‘2G Plus’ regulation.

The “2G” rule refers to the current COVID requirements for large-scale events and nightlife locations in Germany, which require attendees to be either ‘geimpft’ (vaccinated) or ‘genesen’ (unvaccinated) (having had COVID in the last six months).

The limitations will apply to stores, hotels, entertainment halls, education centers, and even Christmas markets around the city.

Club owners are eligible for government assistance, but some are concerned that funds would take months to arrive.

Politicians in Germany are mulling a nationwide lockdown and obligatory vaccinations following a recent coalition arrangement and government turnover.

Since mid-October, the number of COVID cases in Germany has been steadily increasing. With 68,000 new infections on Tuesday, November 23, the largest number of cases in a single day was recorded.

Nightclubs in Bavaria, the country’s largest state, have now closed completely following a three-week lockdown that will see entertainment businesses shut down until Christmas.

Berlin clubs will open their doors to vaccinated and recovered persons as early as this weekend

By News No Comments

This weekend, the Berlin Senate will allow clubs to open for those who have either been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19, potentially as early as this weekend.

On August 31, the Berlin Clubcommission announced the decision. The new regulations are expected to go into force this weekend, according to a report by AFP.

People who have been vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19 infection will be permitted inside under the new method. Capacity and mask rules will not be enforced. They’ll still be prohibited from entering if they’re unvaccinated or have never received Covid-19.

When it came to those who had recently been vaccinated or recovered, an administrative court found that the prohibition on dancing indoors was “likely to be disproportional.” To comply with this judgment, the Berlin Senate announced its decision today. Since the summer, certain Berlin venues have operated outside spaces.

Berlin indoor club events will take place this weekend without mask or distancing

By News No Comments

The Senate Department for Culture and Europe in Berlin is investigating the potential of hosting indoor club activities during the outbreak. Starting this Friday at 10pm until August 6th. Currently, 2,000 willing clubbers will be able to attend six different venues: Salon Zur Wilde Renate, Kitkat, SO36, Crack Bellmer, Festsaal Kreuzberg, and Metropol.

Participants need PCR testing from a particular test provider before and after the weekend, rather than the less reliable antigen tests that are normally utilized right now for events entry. Following the session, participants will be asked to complete a survey. The test program hopes to address the challenges of maintaining distance and mask measures inside. Applicants might be both vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Another objective of the trial is to break the link between case frequency levels and venue reopening strategies. Fluctuations in incidences make it difficult for clubs to adjust to the ever-changing levels of regulation, necessitating the development of “scientifically based models that permit dance events even under pandemic conditions.”

Tickets will be available on venue websites beginning August 3rd for €15 plus a 10 Euro refunded after the final test. Please visit the Club Commission’s website for more information.

On this Friday, 18th June, Berlin’s clubbing restrictions will be loosen up

Outdoor dancing gatherings of up to 250 people will be permitted starting June 18th, as long as partygoers can provide a recent negative Covid-19 test and wear FFP2-masks while not sitting. Contact limitations, on the other hand, will remain in place. It, therefore, implies that an event can accommodate up to 10 guests from five separate houses.

The city of Berlin has also agreed to loosen several other restrictions, including the wearing of masks in crowded outdoor places and the removal of the alcohol prohibition in bars and restaurants from midnight to 5 a.m.

Berlin’s seven-day infection rate was 12.2 instances per 100,000 on Wednesday, June 16th, down from 13.6 the day before. Since the epidemic began, almost 180,000 Covid-19 infections have been reported in the city.
