Time: 19:00 – 23.30

In 2019, Musicboard Berlin granted international residencies to eleven different Berlin-based musicians. This enabled these artists to decamp to various far-flung corners of the globe such as Tehran, Detroit, Calcutta, Manila and Kampala. It isn’t just some extravagant holiday though. Having the time and space to explore and develop your creativity and art is an incredibly important aspect of being a musician, and finding said time and space in today’s modern world is increasingly difficult.

As well as offering artists the opportunity to produce work in a new context, the residencies also foster the ability for new connections to be forged and for exposure to new musical cultures and processes. The programme is a truly valuable experience that helps to greatly enrich the Berlin music world.

At this event, five of the eleven selected artists will showcase material that was a result of their participation in the residency. There will be live sets from DENA, who had a residence in Panicale, Italy, DJ Scotch Egg, who had residence in Kampala, Uganda, Hope, who had a residence in Havana, Cuba, and Soft as Snow, who had a residence in Marseille, France. There will also be a DJ set from Ace of Diamonds, who had a residence in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.

The event is free of charge and you can secure tickets via Eventbrite.
