– Berlin’s former airfield Tempelhof is being used as a place of gathering by the city’s people even when there’s no event taking place.
From next year, it will host a festival again: the premiere of Tempelhof Sounds, June 10-12.

Germany-based promoters FKP Scorpio, DreamHaus and Loft Concerts today announced the launch of a joint festival called Tempelhof Sounds, set to premiere June 10-12, 2022, at the former airfield Berlin Tempelhof.

27 acts, led by headliners Muse and The Strokes, already confirmed their participation. The bill includes Alt-J, Interpol, Idles, Royal Blood, Two Door Cinema Club, Mac DeMarco, Wolf Alice, Big Thief, Fontaines D. C., The Gardener & The Tree, Hinds, Black Honey, Just Mustard, Pillow Queens und The Pale White, London Grammar, Parcels, Courtney Barnett, Sophie Hunger, Freya Ridings, Anna Calvi, Kat Frankie, Holly Humberstone, Griff and Baby Queen.
Thus, Tempelhof Sounds brings together the most influential and innovative names in rock and pop in a setting that captures the urban flair of Germany’s capital Berlin.
After such a long time without any major gatherings of live culture, FKP Scorpio CEO Stephan Thanscheidt said, fans could expect an event that combines “international top acts with an extraordinary open-air experience.”
The former airfield Tempelhof has been used as a festival site in the past. It hosted the premiere of Lollapalooza Germany in 2015. However, the festival was forced to move the year after, when the site got turned into a refugee shelter.
