East Side Gallery has become one of the most iconic places in Berlin. The gallery is a vivid combination between the remnants of the Berlin Wall and mural art depicting the creative and lively harmony of the city. In mid-August, East Side Gallery is definitely a must-go. Our language school invites its students to make new summer memories in Berlin with East Side Music Days. The festival will blow your mind with hundreds of amazing performances in different music styles.

A real hub of the truest artists

East Side Music Days first started with the idea of bringing all street performances to the East Side Gallery. Since its first launch in 2014, the festival has become more than just a part of the Berlin Music Week. East Side Music Days now is a highlight of Friedrichshain – Kreuzberg area representing cross-cultural love for music. This is a real hub for artists, performers, dancers, singer-songwriters with different music styles. Music is live, real and close to the audience than ever.

The idea of gathering all these mind-blowing performers on the street and making them closer to the public is the core value of the festival. Thus, admission to East Side Music Days is totally free. You should feel free to enjoy the music, dig into the vibes of a street festival and find a match for your soul. Over 40 000 people came and joined in the hub last year. The festival is now waving at you for unforgettable moments.

Alongside the music, delicious street food will be awaiting you at the East Side Music Days. Do not miss the chance to mix up street music and street food. Kids are also welcome to the East Side Kids Area.
