Adventurous Music—Now on Ice!

An 18 x 7 m ice skating rink arrives at the gargantuan Halle am Berghain, soundtracked by an array of adventurous artists. Bring your skates (or rent a pair) and practice your ice dancing skills to eclectic and free-­roaming DJ sets.

Skatebård is the Norwegian producer, DJ, and Berghain regular. His sound weaves across emotional techno, neo-italo, futuristic electro, and a “Scando-cosmic” reinterpretation of classic Detroit sounds. In a continuation of CTM’s collaboration with Raster, renowned artists Kyoka, Robert Lippok, Grischa Lichtenberger, and Mieko Suzuki appear. The latter will also be repping female:pressure together with Mo Loschelder, a driving force behind Berlin’s club scene. Freak de l’Afrique are a German Afro-house group known for hosting parties such as the Afro House Experience, Bantu's Diary, and Black Paper. Room 4 Resistance resident DJ Occult spins ghettotech and booty bass; celebrated music journalist Joe Muggs delivers an ambient set; passionate dancer, attentive listener, and Rinse France resident Marylou appears; and Morphine label boss Rabih Beaini can be relied on to deliver a confounding set chock-full of gems.

More music is still to come! Warm up with a hot drink and watch the spectacle under a dazzling light array courtesy of Berlin’s premier light artist Christopher Bauder.


Ice skating at the Eishalle is undertaken at your own risk. Up to 40 people can skate simultaneously. Children under 16 must be accompanied by adults (no children under 3 allowed). Neither CTM / DISK Initiative Bild & Ton e.V. nor Berghain Ostgut GmbH are liable for any injuries. There will be no lockers on site, so please be considerate of what belongings you bring. You can rent skates for half an hour for 2 € or bring your own. The ice itself is synthetic, but please dress warmly. 

From Tuesday the 29th to Friday the 1st, the ice rink will be cleared at 20:45. After 21:00, Eishalle can only be accessed through Berghain with a ticket to the music programme (18+ only and personal ice skates will not be allowed inside the main venue, but of course you can rent a pair during that time).

There will be a bar with hot and cold beverages (but better not to skate and drink!), and lastly, please be careful and considerate of one another!
