Berlin: Heineken Green Sphere (win)

The location bears the probably most beautiful name in town (Insel der Jugend, isle of youth), the dominant colour is the one of hope (green) and the line-up is a fine and well-selected one. With the Heineken Green Sphere Berlin’s Spree riverside in Treptow will see a fountain of youth manifesting itself in a small Sunday’s openair.
Playing their for now only German gig, Island quintet FM Belfast (photo) will headline the event. It’s feisty cliché-free electro pop they play, which will already go for a second round on June 3 with the release of new full-length Don’t Want To Sleep on Morr. The first impressions embedded below, “I Don’t Want To Go To Sleep Either” (video) and “New Year” (download), turn out be respectively enthusiastic. (And if you need to be convinced by the band’s live qualities first, there’s also a complete and exuberant video recording of a gig, they did earlier this year.)
A diverse DJ support comes from UK band Foals, the always busy Berlin scene eclectics Hunee (Hunch Music, Rush Hour, Permanent Vacation, Ostgut Ton, …) and Hugo Capablanca (Bananamania, Broken Hearts Club, Los Massieras) plus Remmidemmi.

You can register for the event on their website or just win 1×2 guestlist invites here, by being at least 18 years old and leaving us a green comment below! The winner will be chosen by our green thumb random, so good luck!
