E-Werk, a historic ’90s Berlin techno club, will temporarily reopen its doors for a project called Temporary Club.
The event runs from March 24th-27th with over sixty artists booked to play sets across the venue’s numerous spaces. Lineups will be curated by a group of German labels consisting of Pallas, Voxnox, Hard Trade, Concrete and Nautilus.
According to organizers, attendees will “most probably” have to abide by COVID-19 regulations (called the “2G+ rule” in Germany) to gain entrance. The news comes as Berlin recently announced that clubs across the German capital are free to open their doors once again.
Taking to Instagram to announce the event, organizers wrote, “With the concept ‘Temporary Club’ Pallas creates a club experience for only one weekend at the historic E-Werk.”
In its short run from 1993-1997 as a techno club (before converting to an all-purpose venue), E-Werk was known for hosting events featuring world-class talent. In 1994, The Prodigy played there for the MTV European Music Awards. The venue is housed in a decommissioned electrical substation located near Checkpoint Charlie, a well-known crossing spot between East and West Berlin during the Cold War.
