The hottest music scene in Western Europe is without question coming in and out of Berlin. The city lives and breathes music and is responsible for setting music trends – especially in the electronic world of dubstep, house, and techno. Berlin concerts do run the gamut though and every big name in the business comes through town to play and party all night with the rest of the city.
Because of the non-stop thirst for music, there is definitely no shortage of major concert halls in the city. A-list talent plays in any number of venues such as: Max-Schmeling-Halle, Columbia Halle, Velodrom, Kindl-Buehne Wuhlheide, Tempodrom, Arena Berlin, and O2 World – and have hosted the likes of Janet Jackson, Sting, Paul Van Dyk, Metallica, the Black Eyed Peas, MGMT, Daft Punk, Bruno Mars, The Killers, and on, and on.
Of course seeing concerts in Berlin doesn’t have to mean shelling out big money for big name talent, as there are hundreds of clubs throughout the city who host the hottest DJs in the business and where the crowds dance like crazy all night long.
There are also plenty of cool, smoky, smaller joints in Berlin where jazz and other concerts get a more down-to-earth crowd tapping their toes or where local neighborhood haunts play host to smaller acts, up-and-coming-bands, and solo folk musicians just sharing their art.
