Already in its second year, the Pop Kultur returns this year with another first class lineup including Thurston Moore, Mogwai, Malcolm Middleton, Matthew Herbert, Brandt Brauer Frick and many more. This year the festival takes place in Neukölln and Kreuzberg – in and around the excellent Heimathafen venue.
»Pop-Kultur« is a new festival for Berlin, held from August 31 to September 2 in Berlin-Neukölln, following its 2015 premiere at Berghain. With its program comprising live concerts, performances, talks, and readings »Pop-Kultur« shines a light on Berlin’s busy scene while meeting standards of internationality and one can expect to experience diversity in 2k16.
»Pop-Kultur« advocates interdisciplinary exchange, including contemporary scientific discourse on music, society, and urban development. Visitors can experience various international and German premieres. It began in Berlin! – is our motto for good reason. Over the course of three days, the festival turns into a one big productive laboratory for the most ambitious of ideas.
Not only because of this »Pop-Kultur« can be seen as more than just a typical music festival. We invite young talents of all disciplines to join our workshop program »Pop-Kultur Nachwuchs«. We will pair them up with professional musicians, economical and political leaders and decision-makers out of the music industry. Applicants can expect both inspiring and productive talks.
