    Raving on in quarantine with ‘United We Stream’ Dina Elsayed


By Benjamin Restle

Berlin’s clubs were forced to shut this month to help contain the coronavirus outbreak. With Berliners deprived of their beloved music venues, and clubs missing out on vital revenue, Clubcommission and Reclaim Club Culture launched the United We Stream platform. 

Here, venues can stream DJ sets, concerts and much more for Berliners to enjoy in the safety of their homes. In return, they’re asking for donations to get them through these tough times.

We caught up with Clubcommission spokesman Lutz Leichsenring (pictured) on Skype to find out how many people have tuned in so far and if the platform can save clubs from financial ruin.

By the way – If you love our content, please consider donating to KCRW Berlin. We are a listener-funded public radio station, driven by supporters like you. Your donation supports our programming and events, feeding a flourishing English language community with local news, information and ideas.
