Berlin's Funkhaus has revealed its upcoming dates, including shows from GieglingHauschka, Nathan Fake, Ambiq, and more.

Berlin’s Funkhaus boasts a long and cultured history. Having been designed by a team of acousticians and Bauhaus architect Franz Ehrlicht, it was built during the 1950s as a multi-purpose broadcasting campus for the GDR’s state radio. Funkhaus served its purpose for many years before ceasing all radio transmissions in the late months of 1989 at the fall of the Berlin wall, after which the building—situated on the banks of the Spree in the city’s Treptow-Köpenick district—was left unused, leaving one of the world’s largest finest purpose-built recording complexes all but abandoned. Since then, various production teams have made use of the space; and, now under new ownership, it continues to house a variety of musical projects, including symphony orchestras, choirs, and artists from pop and electronic music. Although the studios are designed specifically with recording in mind, the main hall does host live performances.
