About this Event
Let's start things off the Berlin way - and throw a party! Please join us for music, drinks and networking as we're warming up the space for three days of an exciting mix panels, meetups and parties at the BerlinSaloon 2020. On stage we present to you:
Flying Turns is essentially Larry Levan slapping Guy Cuevas in the face with a copy of a Giorgio White Knight after a third round of Ronnie’s cheap piña coladas.
The four man soundsystem comprised of Son Fjord, Hayden Edward, Mike Z, and Dan Gentile has been operating out of Austin, TX since 2010 with a unique collaborative approach that eschews traditional sets in favor of a totally impractical 1 and 1 and 1 and 1 approach.
Sofia Portanet, the Berlin based artist who has created a huge hype around her in the past 12 months with her first four singles which has seen her perform at festivals including Reeperbahn Festival, Synasthesie Festival, Eurosonic and SXSW. Sofia takes a contemporary twist on Neue Deutsche Welle (German New Wave) and post punk. Signed to Duchess Box Records, who launched the likes of Gurr, Sofia has been called "Germany's next big pop star" by BBC 6Music, awarded "Best Newcomer for 2019" by WDR 1 Live and is part of best newcomer-lists by Red Bull and many more, which recently saw her taken on by Melt! Booking.
We're also delighted to announce that Michael Treyger, Deputy Director for Business and Community Development from the Texas' Governors Office will be joining us to give some opening remarks!
