Berlin Gig Forecast |Special Edition| : Winter Festivals

As we find ourselves firmly planted in the heart of (an albeit warm) winter, everyone’s already pining for the endless sunshine and aimless späti hopping of a summer that feels like it’s eons away. Until then, we’ll just have to rely on another beloved typical summer staple to tide us over: music festivals. Conveniently enough, there are two local Berlin fests coming up in these next few days, namely…

S t a r g a z e Orchestral – Long Weekender

What
Stargaze is a Berlin-based orchestral ensemble who’s recently been making waves in the indie and neoclassical communities, from collaborations with Deerhoof and Owen Pallett, to their most recent work on the score for Iñárritu’s upcoming film, The Revenant. In any case, as the festival is centered around and curated by this collective, the genres range anywhere from electroacoustic to folk to pop. It consists of 14 separate performances by various artists, and includes original compositions by innovators like Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood, among others.
