Parties 2018

From 10.8. until 2.9. Tanz im August will turn Berlin into the international hotspot for dance once more. Apart from over 80 performances and additional audience engagement formats we would like to invite our audience to five parties this year. Admission to all parties is free.

10.8. | Haus der Berliner Festspiele | Opening Party

DJs: Sense of Sun + White Lie

For the start of the 30th edition of Tanz im August we take the dancefloor at Haus der Berliner Festspiele. After the opening performance of "Trois Grandes Fugues" by the Ballet de l'Operá de Lyon we present DJ sets by Sense of Sun (Family Unit, 5 Senses Festival, Luftschloss) and White Lie.

11.8. | WAU

DJs: J.CLOUD +  Jochen Discomeyer

To celebrate the official festival center at HAU2 we throw a party at WAU on 11.8. Watch out for the Disco Funk and Rnb Soul tunes of J.Cloud (BASSGANG). He will be joined behind the DJ desks by Jochen Discomeyer (auch bekannt als Jochen Guacamole).

Prance im August | 18.8. | WAU

To ease the ride through the second Tanz im August-weekend, we have gathered some of the best dance artist from the Commonwealth. All the way from Australia Natalie Abbott, James Batchelor, Nick Power and MEDS will bring the WAU-dancefloor into motion. They will be joined by Aaron Zimbra (one half of the Knickerbocker-DJs), whose sounds invite us into London's queer party scene, while Rachel Porter from Fig Wigs will graciously guide us through the evening. The evening will also feature Daniel Hengst's extraordinary installation.

Kosmos (Compost Records + Denovali Records) and her atmospheric tracks somewhere between IDM and Ambient. The evening will also be musically hosted by Berlin based DJ Dora Pan.

On 1.9. we want to celebrate the festival closing with all artists, helpers, partners and of course our audience. For this final curtain we invited DJ Wahid Paradis to bring his trademark arabic influenced house sound to WAU. He will be followed by kos_mic q'andi and their electric sounds.
