Electronic music

MCs of the mixing table

Hamburg is also one of the leading cities when it comes to electronic music. Whether it is electro pop, house, swing, funk, or drum and base – there is always lots going on in Hamburg’s electronic music scene, and not just only at the weekend. Friends of excellent dance music will find live sets and DJ gigs in renowned clubs such as the Pal, the legendary Golden Pudel Club, the Waagenbau, and the Moondoo on the Reeperbahn, where people celebrate until the early morning hours. Famous house and techno artists from Hamburg, such as DJ duo Moonbotica, David August, and Mladen Solomun, have become symbols of the city’s well established, colourful electronic music scene. In summer, electronic music events are also hosted in and around Hamburg at arty festivals such as Habitat, Vogelball and the Katermukke Festival. In addition, more intimate, sophisticated events in the port, on board ships, in the countryside and in historic industrial buildings are waiting to be discovered by music fans from around the world.
