It’s June and lovers of the bright nights will really get their monies worth on June 21st when mother nature is showing off with the longest day and the shortest night, marking the turn of the Earth’s arch and the beginning of summer.
Equally exciting is the prospect of celebrating the occasion with some human pleasures, coming in the form of alcoholic beverages and music being played live on a stage. On Friday next week, June 24th, experts in anything north of the Baltic waters, Nordic by Nature, are going to host the official Berlin Midsommar party for the fifth time. The area at Friedrichshain’s Urban Spree will be seeing the traditional floral crowns, midsommar games and the Små Grodorna as well as modern food trucks and a carefully selected group of Scandinavian musicians.
On the ticket this year are Gnučči from Sweden, Lisa Alma and Wangel from Denmark, Chain Wallet from Norway und Iceland’s Lord Pusswhip. Oh Mamma! While the two Danes should be ringing bells, the latter two might not. Attached above, thus, are Chain Wallet. Shade is their single from late last year, a perfect guitar driven dreamy pop gem with just the right amount of reverb, attached below, at your convenience. Summer, here we come, at Urban Spree. And there will be a Finnish sauna, too. Team Poule says, let’s go!
