Berlin’s Tresor set to reopen

Techno fans are rejoicing with the news that Tresor, Berlin’s most famous club, is set to reopen at a new location in Mitte next month.

Tresor was booted out of its home on Leipziger Strasse two years ago, after some pesky developers moved in and erected a high-rise office building.

“Tresor coming back makes me feel younger,” said Tresor owner Dimitri Hegemann. 

“It is good for Berlin and an important signal for the techno community.”

The club was supposed to open last weekend, but Tresor’s owners experienced some difficulties getting a license, which they have thankfully overcome.

But if it wasn’t for those bloody developers, Tresor wouldn’t have had to move in the first place.

Dimitri ranted to Beatportal: “The city was blind. The ground has been sold for boring office space!”

At least Tresor’s music policy will be the same cutting-edge electronic music, where the artists and DJs have all the freedom they want.

“We’ve got a few new young faces from the city who are unknown but very ambitious,” said Dimitri.

“We talked to Blake Baxter and he said yes. Also DJ Rush and Cristian Vogel are residents.”

Sven Väth is headlining the opening night on May 24th in what will be his first gig in Berlin for three years.

US techno producer Stewart Walker is also due to play in May.

Tresor will be open every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
