Berlin’s Watergate is hosting club nights again, but this time it’s virtually

Celebrate and dance together despite clubs being closed? The wait is over, as on the 10th July, this will again be possible at Watergate. For the first time since the club was forced to close in March due to the lockdown, the Berlin hot spot is bringing a new type club night, this time to your screens. The doors are closed – but the windows are open!

YWO is a new online platform which is being introduced with this first virtual event. It transports a night out at Watergate into the clubbers’ homes. YWO operates as more of an interactive space that brings the club experience to life in all its facets in a virtual way. Watergate will be opening it’s 2 rooms plus terrace, with an internationally renowned line up of DJs, live acts and Watergate residents who will be coming to play for free, including Pan-Pot, Adana Twins, Who Made Who (LIVE), JAMIIE, Anja Schneider B2B Kristin Velvet, Biesmans (LIVE) and Yulia Niko all streamed in association with Beatport.

Guests and artists from all over the world gathered at Watergate to experience new music, dance with friends and enjoy a cocktail. With YWO that will now all be possible again, digitally. You can party alone, and meet new people, or invite your friends and have your own private party of up to five. A private rendezvous in the toilets, enables voice and video chat with friends and strangers, with the added security of a ‘Call The Bouncer’ button. This allows clubbers to report any inappropriate behavior, racism and discrimination, with the power to boot them well and truly out!

The entrance fee is up to the visitor. A minimum entrance fee will be set at €1, which covers the cost of the servers to run the event. Any greater donations will go back to the future running of the club and helping our performing artists. We hope this will be the first of many virtual events with Watergate, creating a new path for the way in which we go clubbing safely, at least for now. Ticket link HERE
