Who doesn’t like free stuff? Check out this running list of budget concerts in Berlin.
BERLIN Live is one of the more regular opportunities to see some pretty big acts at no cost. You can’t be certain that you’ll always be super into what they have to offer, but nevertheless. This edition features 70s-era art pop duo Sparks, still going strong with their 23rd release Hippopotamus. Sign up quickly here to get yourself on the guestlist for the show at Schuwz.
As part of a Forecast Festival at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Finnish dream/synth-pop sensation Jaakko Eino Kalevi will perform a few of his irresistible tunes. Not only is admission to his concert free of charge, but all of the festival’s installations are as well. Have a blast, kids.
You can always count on Michelberger Hotel for a good (see: free) time. This coming Sunday, they’ll host an evening of lovely piano music in their cozy lobby, featuring The Havels and Claudio Donizelli.
Even if the Berlin Sessions shows at Klunkerkranich are not totally free, for a small fee (3€) you’ll get the chance to catch a couple great bands with a rooftop view over the city as a backdrop. This time around, check out London’s indie grunge act HAWK and Berlin’s own KILNAMANA.
