The daily livestream with DJ sets from the Berlin clubs closed due to the Corona crisis should be expanded beyond the capital in view of the success.
From next week on, clubs from Hamburg, Munich, Leipzig, Vienna or Amsterdam also want to participate in #UnitedWeStream, as the spokesman for the club commission, Lutz Leichsenring, who said.
After the first week of the streams, Leichsenring spoke of more than three million unique users on the site. The feedback was very large, there was news from all over the world. So far, almost ten thousand people have contributed to the money collection, so far donating more than a quarter of a million euros to the clubs. Part of this is also intended to help refugees.
During the first few days, numerous DJs took part in the broadcasts with clubs from clubs such as “Watergate”, “Tresor”, “Alte Münze”, “Kater Blau”, “Griesmühle” or “Wilde Renate”, which start every day at 7:00 p.m. . The internationally celebrated scene flagship “Berghain” has also announced its participation.
The campaign is supported by several media, including Arte Concert, RBB, radioeins, FluxFm and Alex TV. According to the Arte Concert, the broadcasts met with great interest. In the media library and on third-party platforms, more than 1.7 million video views had already been made in the first week, it said. The streams should remain available on the platform of the broadcaster.
With the current closings, club sales have slumped. Running costs of a club like the “Watergate” with 70 to 80 permanent employees alone are around 120,000 euros per month, according to Leichsenring. The “Berghain”, a magnet for party goers from all over the world, has around 350 employees.
