s t a r g a z e are one of the names on the list of artists involved with the happening at Funkhaus that somewhat embody what this event is all about…collaboration is at the core of what they do. Ever heard a live mixtape with various artists popping in and out ? Well…s t a r g a z e will bring it to life. s t a r g a z ()


The Performance Spaces at
Michelberger Music

The Funkhaus offers a wider range of spaces for various types of set ups. We attempt to use the spaces as instruments themselves. Instead of using them as a pretty backdrop they will feed into the music. From studios for a 50 person audience, to a studio that holds 1000 people to the main stage that will bring all of us together! It will be a ride through history. Here some ()


Michelberger Music

One of the things that we’re most looking forward to about the music happening on 1 and 2 October is the fact that there’s so much that we don’t know. The magnificent possibility of what might happen when you have 80 artists spending a week collaborating and creating new music to be shared at the end… However, that’s not to say some ideas haven’t already begun to crop up! Quite a few ()


From the

Pictured here is one of the late summer dishes from our current dinner menu in the restaurant – chicken with corn, tarragon and black cabbage. A little while ago we gave the menu a bit of a shake up, swapping out the traditional starter, main, dessert structure with a selection of smaller dishes, designed to be shared. The menu is now divided into sections such as snacks, vegetables, fish etc. ()



Farewell Mario from the Kitchen. On Thursday he decided to end his earth life. We all took him with open arms to our place and a lot of you supported and had an open ear helping him to integrate and give him a spot, stability. We don’t know what stories and sorrows he carried on his journey from Columbia to Italy to his time in Berlin. Sadly it all might have ()


Noga Erez

Noga Erez had been in jazz bands as well as rock bands for quite some time, but a few years ago discovered the magic of the loop station. Since then she’s been flying seemingly solo, judging by all those videos on the internet. But in reality she has found her congenial musical match in partner Ori Rousso, and together the two are currently sketching out a pretty unique and far ()


At Work

Last Monday Casper, Rasmus, Tatu and Mads – AKA Liima – moved into the hotel for a week. Up on the fourth floor they spent their time writing, rehearsing, playing new music, all of which premiered in our courtyard on Friday evening. It was a taste of things to come, when in one months time we’ll be doing it all again, but this time with 100 music makers, the results of ()


Fountain of Youth

Make the most of the late summer burn with these new goodies from the Fountain of Youth. There’s 3 t-shirt designs: Tiger, with a front and back print, as well as Horse and Snake with just front prints. To go with them there are some shorts, available in a mens and womens cut. Strictly limited quantities, so come pick them up in the lobby while they’re hot!

It’s an exciting time to be in Berlin. People are arriving here from all over, and bringing with them the ideas they have about the things they are passionate about. They’re coming here, taking chances, and shaking things up! To our eyes, this is resulting in a refreshing culture emerging of small, independent, family run businesses who are not afraid to do things their own way. We wanted to take ()


Eaux Claire
Music Meeting

We met with our Music Partners in Eaux Claire. Blowing the dust towards Berlin…. Here are the ingredients for a fine festival: Golf carts to chase around the grounds. A creative director who is able to chat about everything 24 hours before showtime. Performer that no one has ever heard of, and blows everyone’s mind. Orange dressing rooms… maybe not. Mystery, suspense – never heard music Collaborations of long haired guitar ()
