Pop-culture events in Berlin – such as festivals, concert series and workshops – are supported by Musicboard through the project-funding programmes Festival Funding, Karrieresprungbrett and Pop im Kiez. In addition to funding around 250 individual events each year, Musicboard itself has been organising the international festival Pop-Kultur since 2015 and – for and with music enthusiasts in the city – the Fête de la Musique since 2018. You can find all events funded by Musicboard as well as cooperations and our own events at a glance in our calendar.

Musicboard Events

Pop-Kultur 2022

Pop-Kultur Festival

Since 2015, the Pop-Kultur festival has been creating a discursive, diverse and inclusive setting through concerts, talks, readings, films and commissioned works. The festival is a hyphen between the perspectives of artists and the society they engage with. It facilitates dialogue and initiates long-term conversations that go beyond the music itself.
Fête de la Musique

Fête de la Musique

On June 21 each year, Berlin celebrates its Fête de la Musique. The event has been organised and produced by Musicboard Berlin since 2018. At around one hundred outdoor stages in every district, Berlin’s music scene presents its musical gifts to the city and its visitors. It’s a festival for and by Berlin, that lives for the joy of music and from a great citizen engagement.
