Summer in Berlin!?! 26th-28th of July, 2013-save the dates for the second term of the Greenville Music Festival. The event takes places  in the green surroundings of Schönwalde-Glien about 30 km from Berlin, which makes it close enough to the city, yet  far enough from the city’s traffic, noise and pollution.

The beginning of the fest in 2012 featured big names such as Iggy Pop, The Flaming lips, The Roots, Deichkind , CRO and many, many  local artists. This year’s music scenery will present the awesome Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Bloodhound Gang, Wu-Tang Clan, and Katzenjammer.

My experience with the last year’s event was so cool due to the fact that it was still unexplored and not so crowded.  I’ve never seen The Flaming Lips perform in front of a smaller audience and that in itself created such an amazing and intimate environment.

The really cool thing about the Greenville music festival is the green idea behind it – green place, green conscious, green experience. Even the wrist bands you get at the entrance are made of a recyclable material, the festival’s t shirts are made from organic cotton and all bottles get collected for recycling. A large green field is available for tents and camping gear and a separate space is offered for RVs and cars. If you don’t feel like dragging tents around you can easily rent one on the spot, yet the event is just 40 minutes away from Berlin and you can easily get back to the city if desired.

The tickets can be bought for 1,2 or 3 days and the prices vary as follows: 1 day ticket (without camping) 45 euro; 3 day ticket (without camping) 89 euro, plus camping 99 euro; if you bring an RV that will cost you 109 euro and the rock star 3 day camping ticket will cost you 399 euro (its pretty much a VIP ticket). Last year the crowd was pretty mixed – from families with kids, to students and young adults. The huge open space in front of the stages is taken up by food and drink stands. All the food is from certified bio products and a specially brewed Greenville beer, cocktails, wine and coffees are available to quench the summer thirst.

Hello Berlin explorers, I am Tia (short for Teodora, 28) and I am very excited to share my unique and local experience of this amazing city. I've lived all over the German capital and I am a big fan of each and every borough. I hope, through my reviews, you will get to experience the true Berlin and become a fan as well.
