A new club is opening this weekend at Berlin’s defunct Tegel Airport, Turbulence XL.
The venue’s inaugural party, aptly titled ‘Lift Off’, features Mareena, Philipp Johan Thimm, Lisbird, Saraab and a special back-to-back between Zebra Katz and S Ruston lined up for the celebration.
Tegel Airport, which has been closed since November 2020, was a popular destination for DJs and touring artists due to how quick it was to pass through.
Since closing it housed the sound art festival, Sonambiente Berlin TXL. The festival took place from August 21 to September 5 in terminals A and B.

Turbulence TXL’s launch party will instead take place in the former-airport’s canteen, with a capacity of 700.
Following its eight-hour day party, the space will be open for live music, workshops and art installations as well as club nights, the space’s mission being to “transform the franchtkantine at Tegel Airport into a creative hub.”
