Berlin’s Tegel airport could be turned into a gigantic club complex

Nightlife officials in the city are due to commence talks next month...

Berlin’s Tegel airport could be turned into a club complex after it closes later this year.

Members of Berlin’s Clubcommission — the network introduced in 2000 that acts as a mouthpiece to protect the interests of Berlin’s club scene – will visit Tegel airport after it closes, according to reports from Berlin-based newspaper Der Tagesspiegel.

Berlin residents voted to keep the airport open in a referendum last year, but if the closure does go ahead then the Clubcommission will reportedly look at options available from Tegel’s network of hangars and sound-proof jet engine testing hall.

Berlin's city government recently pledged €1million to fund soundproofing in the city's various clubs and venues.

The techno-scored film about Berlin's nightlife, 'Symphony of Now', also unveiled its trailer earlier this year (January).
