A new lakeside venue is set to open in Berlin.

Based in Wedding, a locality in the central borough of Mitte, Plötze is an open-air venue promising a sandy dance floor, a customised reggae soundsystem, and the opportunity for attendees to take a dip in the nearby Plötzensee lake.

Launching on Saturday, 10th July with sets by the likes of Giammarco Orsini and Vlada, the venue will also host Pornceptual on 18th July, and kickstarts its own series, Likeminded By The Lake, on 24th July with a set by The 7th Plain, AKA Luke Slater.

In order to attend the venue, attendees must bring a negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination and wear a mask when not sitting down, among other regulations. Keep up to date with the venue via their website and Instagram page.

The venue launch comes following Berlin easing coronavirus restrictions in nightclubs last month. 

Earlier this year, the Berlin Club Commission (BCC) unveiled a six-point plan to reopen the city’s venues, which included a run of pilot events with rapid COVID-19 testing, as well as a central information hub for clubs that will share hygiene concept recommendations and current regulations.

In other Berlin clubbing news, Berghain will reopen its garden area this weekend.
