- As Berlin glides into late summer, we’re hard at work behind the scenes to make the second edition of Pure&Crafted Festival at least as brilliant as last year. Anyone who doesn’t have a ticket by now would do well to purchase ahead of time, because we can’t predict whether the box office will have any left on the day of the event. Festival and day tickets can be had for 59,00 euros or 29,00 / 39,00 euros.

As Berlin glides into late summer, we’re hard at work behind the scenes to make the second edition of Pure&Crafted Festival at least as brilliant as last year. Anyone who doesn’t have a ticket by now would do well to purchase ahead of time, because we can’t predict whether the box office will have any left on the day of the event. Festival and day tickets can be had for 59,00 euros or 29,00 / 39,00 euros.
We can predict that the performance by Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds on 13 August 2016 at Postbahnhof will be his last in Germany this year – and that he’ll be giving us a few Oasis hits for the road. Mando Diao will also be rocking his last 2016 stage performance in Germany, and we look forward to hearing guitar riffs like ‘Down In The Past’ and ‘Dance With Somebody’! And since all good things come in threes, Tricky is also presenting Skilled Mechanics in an exclusive performance on the Spree.
We’ve also got a tour-de-force waiting in the wings: Band Of Skulls, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Abby, The King Blues, Tim Vantol, Smile And Burn, PINS, Treetop Flyers and Otherkin.
Berlinmusiker & Punk Rock Karaoke
The Berlinmusiker Acoustic series is a promising platform for aspiring singer / songwriters held at the Grüner Salon in Volksbühne theatre. The six best musicians from past showcases have a chance to perform at this year’s Pure&Crafted Festival with no less than the legendary Motodrom as a backdrop.
Of course, with the 40th anniversary of punk rolling around, the Pure&Crafted Festival would be incomplete without some crashing punk rock classics. Our Punk Rock Karaoke gives festivalgoers with singing ambitions the chance to perform punk rock’s best and loudest songs with a live band to back them up.
No boredom here
Those who have yet to be convinced will be happy to know that Pure&Crafted is more than a music festival. There are surprising things to discover on every square metre of the grounds: The Wheels Area is a place to break out the tools and tinker under the stars while numerous custom workshops introduce themselves and their work to a Berlin audience. Fans of unusual, high-quality fashion and lifestyle products can head to the General Store for a browse.
And finally, this year has something for the eyes as well: the Motorcycle Film Festival from Brooklyn, NY has some cinematic entertainment in store while Rollin’ Eyes – Motorcycle Culture Photography Show offers a glimpse into the life-worlds of various international photographers with an impressive exhibition curated specially for the Pure&Crafted Festival.
It’s time to kick it into gear, get your festival or day tickets, bring your family and immerse yourself in the Pure&Crafted world on 12 and 13 August. And don’t worry – we’ve got plenty of food and drink to go around!
