The day draws near – the indoor activity accelerates. At 10 pm, the courtyard is plunged into darkness as the lights are extinguished, only to turn the spotlights on the night programme in the halls. Strobo, scented fog, confetti – you know what we mean.
No more looking around and marvelling in the General Store and Wheels Area. Now the flying party carpet is rolled out. You dance – and you sing. Where the Diffus Mag had its favourite bands play just a moment ago, you raise your bell-like bellowing voices. The Diffus Stage becomes your stage. Punk rock karaoke from 11 pm until no one can turn away.
On Friday you can enjoy the full emotional rollercoaster. After Drangsal’s drama concert, it’s on to DJ Ussi from the Kukumu Kollektiv at the Ground Club. His summery house captures the spirit of New York block parties, as if all the street hydrants were turned up to the max. As the collective from Berlin Moabit writes in its blog: “Good vibes throughout.”
For the after-show party on Saturday, the fever pitch is turned up once more. The party crew King Kong Kicks will play you into seventh heaven with indie dance and electro pop via Ibiza. All cats are grey at night? At night all cats are colourful birds!
The Closing Party in the Ground Club is the only way to conclude in style. The Skateground DJs take turns at the tables to keep you in the flow. Cool down and don’t drink and drive. You’ll have to find your own way back to Sunday.
