On 28 May 2022 we bring back the hybrid sounds of Anatolia with İÇ İÇE to Festsaal Kreuzberg of Berlin!

After our premier in 2021 with Adir Jan, Daughters and Sons of Gastarbeiters, Gaddafi Gals, Ínsanlar, and many more, Festsaal Kreuzberg turns on the 28 May 2022 again into the meeting point of hybrid Anatolian sounds for the second edition İÇ İÇE.

İÇ İÇE, which means "intertwined" or "interwoven" in Turkish, is a festival for new Anatolian music.

The cross-genre music and cultural program demonstrates that sounds and words echo loudly across borders, contributing to the cultural merging of different spaces and biographies.

The Anatolian region has always been considered a melting pot for diverse cultural currents and musical traditions. Since the 1960s at the latest, these have been unfolding anew in our immediate neighborhood and influencing our everyday life and nightlife, from the underground to pop culture.

We understand how artists reinterpret cultural fragments of their origins in a personal way and thus create space and a voice for themselves in the societies that are home to them as a core element of this cultural format.

Based on this, İÇ İÇE stands for hybrid identities, the acceptance of multiple affiliations, and for life in the post-migrant society.


In what form will the İç İçe Festival 2021 take place?

Of course, the current regulations of the state of Berlin will be observed. Please also observe the hygiene rules of the Festsaal Kreuzberg.

Where can i buy a festival ticket?

Tickets are available at the Festsaal Kreuzberg website or at the Koka36 store at Oranienstraße 29.

How do I get to the festival?

The address of the Festsaal Kreuzberg is: Am Flutgraben 2 in 12435 Berlin. We recommend you to go by bike, public transport or on foot. From Schlesisches Tor or Treptower Park it is only a few hundred meters to Festsaal Kreuzberg. If you come to the location by car, you can find a parking space in the surrounding side streets. However, watch out for parking meters.

Is the location barrier-free accessible?

The Festsaal Kreuzberg is easily accessible for wheelchair users as there is a wheelchair ramp. The hall is barrier-free except for a few levels and there is a wheelchair accessible toilet. There is a ramp to a platform to the left of the stage, which gives wheelchair users a good view of the stage.
At concerts there is always the possibility to put chairs on the platform and reserve them for people who cannot stand for a long time. The fireplace room is also at ground level and therefore barrier-free. Only the gallery above is not accessible by wheelchair. There is also a wheelchair accessible toilet in the fireplace room.
