Berlin lifted more pandemic restrictions this week, but the city’s clubs remain closed for the foreseeable future. What does that mean for Berlin’s iconic clubbing culture and the city’s reputation?

Host Sumi Somaskanda talks with Lutz Leichsenring of Clubcommission Berlin, and Matthias Stieler from “One Berlin” about new strategies to keep Berlin’s club scene alive and explores the city’s rich music culture with DJ Sarah Farina and KCRW Berlin’s Brave New Rave host Moderna.

This show was produced by Monika Müller-Kroll and Sumi Somaskanda.
