Berlin is known for its club culture, and it comes as no surprise that a nightclub in East Berlin is hosting vaccination parties. The club, Arena is hosting three vaccination parties this week with a full DJ line-up, free of charge and no identification required for people over 16 years.

According to an AFP report, Club Arena was one of Berlin’s five main vaccination sites. The idea to combine Berlin’s finest dance music and vaccines was masterminded by Markus Nisch, who is the Arena vaccination centre manager for the German Red Cross.

“Get a free Biontech vaccination during the Berlin Vaccination Nights, alongside a DJ lineup that’s festival worthy. Since the start of the year many DJs and other cultural workers have been working in the vaccination centres in Berlin, for them it’s the best way to help them get back to doing what they love. And on August 9th, 11th and 13th, you can simply drop in without an appointment or even an identity card,” said the Berlin Club Commission who promoted the idea on Instagram.


According to DJ Mag, Berlin will also have a number of trail indoor club events with unmasked, non-distanced crowds this coming weekend. Currently, club events are only allowed to take place fully outdoors in the city due to COVID-19 regulations in Germany.

German broadcaster Deutsche Welle stated that Berlin’s Ministry of Health reported that about 420 people were vaccinated during Monday night’s event.

One of the DJs who played on that night, Sebastian Schwarz who’s part of DJ duo Tiefschwarz, has been a volunteer at the vaccination site since it opened, was surprised by the turnout.

“It’s overwhelming, the empathy and niceness with which people work together here. I’m totally blown away by how people are standing here with umbrellas in the Berlin rain and just want to get in here. It’s like being at a festival,” said Schwarz.

According to Schwarz, this vaccination drive will not only encourage young Germans to get their COVID-19, but it also reminds the rest of the world of Berlin’s party spirit, making the best out of a difficult period.
